Like and dislike to talk about preferences

There are a lot of ways to talk about preferences in English but one of the easiest is by using the verb ‘to like‘.

‘Like’ is a very versatile regular verb in English and can be used express preferences.

  • I like ice cream.
  • I like going to the movies.
  • I like you!
Like and dislike 1

You can also use it in the negative with ‘do not‘:

  • I don’t like ice cream.
  • I don’t like going to the movies.
  • I don’t like you!

And to ask other people questions about their preferences:

  • Do you like ice cream?
  • Do you like going to the movies?
  • Do you like me?

The verb 'to dislike' is the opposite of 'to like'

If you want to use ‘dislike‘ to express a negative preference it is also very easy but perhaps not as usual in spoken English:

  • I dislike ice cream.
  • I dislike going to the movies.
  • Do you dislike me?
