Likes and Dislikes

To talk about your likes and dislikes, you can use these expressions.

Expressing likes:

  • I like…
  • I love…
  • I adore…
  • I’m crazy about…
  • I’m mad about…
  • I enjoy…
  • I’m keen on…

Expressing dislikes:

  • I don’t like…
  • I dislike…
  • I hate…
  • I abhor…
  • I can’t bear…
  • I can’t stand…
  • I detest…
  • I loathe…

Example 1

Examples of likes and dislikes:

  • I’mmad aboutbasketball, but Ican’t bearice hockey.
  • Iadorereading poetry, but Iloathedoing the housework.

 

Things to remember about likes and dislikes:

  • When these expressions are followed by a verb, the latter is put in -ing form. Examples:”I like listening to music.””I hate wearing sun glasses.”
I like VERB+ING
I detest
I don’t mind
  • Note that”very much”& “a lot” always come after the things you like.Examples:”I like basketballvery much/a lot. NOT “I like verymuch/a lot
  • Be careful when you use “I don’t mind…”Examples:”Do you mind playing football?””No, I don’t mind.”(Although it’s in a negative form, it means that it’s ok for me. I neither love it nor hate it.)

 

Dialogue:Amiri is at home. His girlfriend comes in…Notice how they express their likes and dislikes.

Amiri: Hello, darling. Do you fancy watching a film tonight?
Girlfriend: Oh, no thanks, I don’t really feel like watching a film tonight. How about going out instead?
Amiri: OK. Do you feel like going to the theatre?

Amiri: I don’t mind. Chinese cuisine is alright.
Girlfriend: Well I really love it. Let’s go.
