  • Welcome to EnglishClass101.com's “English in Three Minutes”. The fastest, easiest,

  • and most fun way to learn English.

  • Hey everyone, Alisha here!

  • In this series, we're going to learn some easy ways to ask and answer common questions in English.

  • It's really useful, and it only takes three minutes!

  • In this lesson, you're going to learn how to ask what someone's hobbies are - without

  • using the wordhobbies”!

  • You've probably seen the question, “Do you have any hobbies?”, or

  • What are your hobbies?” in an English textbook before.

  • However, native English speakers almost never use the wordhobbieswhen asking about them!

  • A much more natural way to ask the same question is:

  • What do you do for fun?”

  • Let's practice this question.

  • What do you do for fun?”

  • What do you do for fun?”

  • You can also ask:

  • What do you do in your free time?”

  • What do you do in your free time?”

  • So how would you answer this question? Let's look at how native speakers would do it!

  • The easiest way is to say:

  • “I like to...” or just “I like...” followed by what you like to do.

  • For example, if you like watching movies, you could say:

  • “I like to watch movies.” or “I like watching movies.”

  • “I like to watch movies.” or “I like watching movies.”

  • And if you like golf, you could say:

  • “I like to play golfor “I like playing golf”.

  • “I like to play golfor “I like playing golf.”

  • You can emphasize how much you like your hobby by adding a word likereallyin front oflike”.

  • For example: “I really like watching movies.”

  • On the other hand, if you want to play down how much you like something, you can saykind of”.

  • For example: “I kind of like playing tennis.”

  • Now it's time for Alisha's Advice!

  • If you don't have any special hobbies, or don't want to be specific,

  • A good way to reply is: “I like hanging out with my friends, and stuff like that.”

  • “I like hanging out with my friends, and stuff like that.”

  • Just use “I like...”

  • and addhanging out with my friends”, and then add: “and stuff like that.”

  • How do you answer the question: Where you from? It doesn't even have a verb!

  • We 'll cover this and more in the next English in 3 minutes lesson.

  • See you next time!
