Anticipate = To wait for something eagerly. "She anticipated the release of the newest video game console."
Expect = To wait for a predicted outcome "I submitted my job application today. I expect to hear back from them in the next week or two."
Assume = To reach a conclusion based on incomplete data. "I did not see anyone home, so I assumed that you left early for your trip."
*We have a saying in English: "When you 'assume,' you make an 'ass' out of 'u' (you) and 'me."" This is because false assumptions often make people look really silly ("ass" is vulgar slang for someone who acts stupidly.)*
