  • Expressing preferences about hobbies.


Page 85  (Function Bank)

Exercise C – example sentences for expressing likes and dislikes.

Oral practice – Short dialogues exploring students’ preferences about hobbies. 


Vanda – Sandra, what hobbies do you like?

Sandra – I like cycling, but I don’t like weightlifting.

Vanda – Really? I do!  I like weightlifting and jogging. I love sports!

Sandra – Really? I don’t.

Vanda – What more do you like doing, Sandra?

Sandra – I don’t mind swimming. What I really love doing is playing with my two little girls.

Vanda – Really? Me too. I am very keen on children and being with my friends and family. I also enjoy reading.

Sandra – Me too! I enjoy a good book.


If you share the same opinion or preference, you can say:

me too = eu também / so do I = também eu

me neither = eu também não / neither do I = nem eu

If you don’t have the same opinion or if you prefer another thing, you should say:

Really? I don’t! = A sério? Eu não!

Really? I do! = A sério? Eu sim!

Task: Write about your favourite hobby and publish it here!

    My favourite hobby is photography. I like taking pictures very much, when I go out with my boyfriend at the weekend. I like to remember the places I go to or visit.
