Bonjour Sukanya ! That's a trickier question than it looks :) Indeed, in French when you say "Je suis excité(e)", it immediately takes a sexual connotation. And you would NOT use it like that: "Je suis excité(e) de ..." You could however use the following expressions: "Je suis excité(e) à l'idée de " or "Je suis impatient(e) [à l'idée] de " If you have a specific sentence in mind, please let me know, and I'll give you the best equivalent possible ;) À bientôt !
