[Part 1]

Hi, everybody.

I’m Esther.

And in this video, we’re going to talk about some important English expressions.

And let’s first start with ‘like’ and ‘like to’.

“I like…” and “I like to…”

First, let’s look at the board for some examples.

With ‘I like’, we have to put a person, place or thing.

Right…

So, let’s look.

“I like cookies.”

Right…food is a thing.

So, I could say “I like cookies.”

“I like pizza.”

Ok…

The next one.

“I like English.”

English is a subject in school, so that’s another ‘thing’.

So I can also say, “I like math.”

Right…

The next one is “I like you.”

‘You’ is a person.

I can say, “I like him.”

“I like Sally.”

Right…I can say a person.

And, “I like dogs.”

That’s another thing.

“I like dogs,” or for me personally, “I like cats”…as well.

Ok, so let’s first try these examples a little bit faster.

Now, please try to follow with me.

“I like cookies.”
“I like cookies.”

“I like English.”
“I like English.”

“I like you.”
“I like you.”

And…

“I like dogs.”
“I like dogs.”

Ok…

The second example, is ‘I like to’.

Now, we put a ‘to’ here…that means after, I have to put an activity.

Right…

An activity.

For example.

“I like to dance.”
“I like to dance.”

But what I want you to listen for is that ‘to’ becomes just like a “tu”.

Now, it’s ok to say, “I like to dance.”

“I like to dance.”

That’s ok.

But most native English speakers will kind of get rid of the ‘o’ and say, “I like to dance.”

“I like to dance.”

Here’s the next one.

“I like to sing.”
“I like to sing.”

“I like to study.”

“I like to shop.”

Ok…

So, these are all personally things I like to do.

Actually, I love to do them.

But, ‘like to’ and ‘like’ is a little more common.

Ok…

So, let’s practice these four examples one more time a little more quickly.

And please try to follow me.

“I like to dance.”
“I like to dance.”

“I like to sing.”
“I like to sing.”

“I like to study.”
“I like to study.”

“I like to shop.”
“I like to shop.”

Ok, let’s look at some more examples together.

3:10 [Part 2 – Example Sentences #1]

“I like school.”
“I like school.”

“I like dresses.”
“I like dresses.”

“I like pizza.”
“I like pizza.”

“I like money.”
“I like money.”

“I like vacations.”
“I like vacations.”

“I like food.”
“I like food.”

“I like to eat.”
“I like to eat.”

“I like to exercise.”
“I like to exercise.”

“I like to walk.”
“I like to walk.”

“I like to drink coffee.”
“I like to drink coffee.”

“I like to meet friends.”
“I like to meet friends.”

“I like to travel.”
“I like to travel.”

4:29 [Part 3]

Ok, so now, we’re going to move to the expressions ‘I don’t like’ and ‘I don’t like to’.

So, if you look at the board…

I’ve changed ‘I like’ to ‘I don’t like’.

Now, it’s the same.

At the end, I have to say a person, a place or thing.

Ok…

So, let’s look at them together.

“I don’t like sushi.”

Let’s try it a little bit faster.

“I don’t like sushi.”
“I don’t like sushi.”

Ok, the next one is “I don’t like math.”

Right…

We can say, “I hate…” but “I don’t like…” is more common.

“I don’t like math.”

Again, a little faster.

“I don’t like math.”
“I don’t like math.”

The next one is “I don’t like him.”

“I don’t like him.”
“I don’t like him.”

And the last one…

“I don’t like snakes.”

Right…

A lot of women don’t like snakes.

“I don’t like snakes.”
“I don’t like snakes.”

Ok…

The second example is “I don’t like to…”

“I don’t like to…”

Remember, at the end of this we have to put an action.

Something that we do.

Right…

So we can say, “I don’t like to run.”

“I don’t like to run.”

Remember again, the “to”…you can say “I don’t like to…” or “I don’t like ‘tu’…”.

“I don’t like to run.”

Let’s try the next one.

“I don’t like to study.”
“I don’t like to study.”

Ok…

After that.

“I don’t like to drink.”

A little faster.

“I don’t like to drink.”
“I don’t like to drink.”

And the last one is…

“I don’t like to fight.”

Right…

It can get a little bit scary, right?

“I don’t like to fight.”
“I don’t like to fight.”

Let’s look at more…some more examples together.

6:41 [Part 4 – Example Sentences #2]

Ok, let’s look at some examples.

“I don’t like spiders.”
“I don’t like spiders.”

“I don’t like snow.”
“I don’t like snow.”

“I don’t like winter.”
“I don’t like winter.”

“I don’t like chicken feet.”
“I don’t like chicken feet.”

“I don’t like heels.”
“I don’t like heels.”

“I don’t like ugly guys.”
“I don’t like ugly guys.”

“I don’t like to work.”
“I don’t like to work.”

“I don’t like to hike.”
“I don’t like to hike.”

“I don’t like to wash dishes.”
“I don’t like to wash dishes.”

“I don’t like to clean up.”
“I don’t like to clean up.”

“I don’t like to eat alone.”
“I don’t like to eat alone.”

“I don’t like to drink soju.”
“I don’t like to drink soju.”

8:16 [Part 5]

Ok, so in this video, we talked about the expressions ‘I like’, ‘I like to’ and ‘I don’t like’, ‘I don’t like to’.

But, uhhh…before we close up, I’m going to talk about ‘I like’ and ‘I don’t like’ one more time.

Because, there are other ways to say the same thing.

Instead of “I like…”, I can also say, “I enjoy…” or “I love…”.

But remember, “love” is very strong.

Right, for example, “I love cats.”

“I also love dogs.”

Right, so ‘love’ is stronger than ‘like’.

Ok…

The next part is “I don’t like…”

I can also say, “I dislike…”

Again, “I dislike…”

For example, “I dislike snakes.”

Right…

Or…

“I hate snakes.”

Similar to ‘love’, ‘hate’ is a very strong way of saying “I don’t like somthing.”

For example, “I hate snakes.”

Right…

“I hate snakes.”

Ok, so I hope that helps and hope to see you guys next time.

Bye bye.
