In our first lesson, we will talk about the ‘like verb-ing’ structure.

“like verb-ing” and “Like to verb” are two ways to talk about things you enjoy or activities you enjoy doing.

“Like to verb”:

Use this when you want to say you enjoy doing something.

Example:

I like to eat ice cream. (I enjoy eating ice cream.)

“Like verb-ing”:

Use this when you want to say you enjoy the activity itself.

Example:

I like eating ice cream. (I enjoy the activity of eating ice cream.)


So, both ways express that you enjoy something, but “like to verb” focuses on the action, while “like verb-ing” focuses on the activity itself. Easy, right?
