Vocabulary - expressing likes and dislikes

LESSON OVERVIEW

This worksheet can supplement our lesson plans on art and includes various words and phrases that more advanced students might use when expressing likes and dislikes.

B2 / Upper Intermediate30 minStandard LessonPremium Plan

EXPRESSING LIKES AND DISLIKES

There are two vocabulary tasks in the worksheet. First, students need to categorize various expressions in terms of what they express: like or dislike. The task includes phrases such as be fond of, have no taste for, loathe, have a penchant for, put somebody off, etc. Another exercise is a key word transformation task whose goal is to practise phrases from the previous exercise. Students have to write the second sentence so that it has a similar meaning as the first one using a word given in brackets.

SPEAKING

Finally, students approach one speaking activity. They need to discuss and express their opinions about selected works of art. Monitor them and remind them about using the expression they’ve learnt during the lesson. For this task we picked a few works of art we thought people might either hate or love – if you want to use other artwork for this task, we recommend browsing Google Arts & Culture.

Is there a minimum subscription period if I choose a monthly subscription?

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

Our default currency is USD (American dollar), but you can also pay in EUR (euro), GBP (British pound sterling) or PLN (Polish zloty). You can change the currency you want to pay in at the Pricing page before selecting a subscription plan.

How can I edit an e-lesson plan?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
