  • Hi, everybody, I'm Esther.

  • And in this video we're gonna talk  about some important English expression.

  • 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.'

  • Okay.

  • 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.

  • Okay, 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.'

  • Okay.

  • 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 listen for is that 'to' becomes just like a 'tuh!'

  • Now, It's ok to say, 'I like to dance.'

  • 'I like to dance'.

  • That's okay but most native English speakers,

  • will kind of get rid of the 'o' and say,

  • 'I like to dance.'

  • 'I like to dance.'

  • Here is the next one,

  • 'I like to sing.'

  • 'I like to sing.'

  • 'I like to study.'

  • 'I like to shop.'

  • Okay.

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

  • Actually, I love to them.

  • But 'like to' and 'like' is a little more common.

  • Okay.

  • 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.

  • Okay, let's look at some more examples together.

  • I like school.

  • I like dresses.

  • I like pizza.

  • I like money.

  • I like vacations.

  • I like food.

  • I like to eat.

  • I like to exercise.

  • I like to walk.

  • I like to drink coffee.

  • I like to meet friends.

  • I like to travel.

  • Okay, so now we're going to move on to the expression,

  • 'I don't like'

  • and 'I don't like to.'

  • Okay.

  • 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.

  • Okay.

  • 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.

  • Okay.

  • 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.

  • Okay.

  • 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 to'.

  • I don't like to run.

  • Let's try the next one.

  • I don't like to study.

  • I don't like to study.

  • Okay.

  • 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 some more examples together.

  • 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 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.

  • Okay, 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 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'.

  • Remember, 'love' is very strong, right.

  • For example, 'I love cats'.

  • I also love dogs.

  • Right?

  • So, 'love' is stronger than 'like'.

  • Okay.

  • 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 something.

  • For example, 'I hate snakes'.

  • Right! 'I hate snakes.'

  • Okay.

  • So, I hope that helped.

  • And hope to see you guys next time.

  • Bye bye.

Hi, everybody, I'm Esther.
