Vocabulary - expressing likes and dislikes


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 LessonPrintable & Digital$6 Plan


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.


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.


This worksheet goes well with our lesson plans:

  1. When graffiti ends up in art galleries
  2. Art or prank?
