Teaching Reading: Likes and Dislikes


Hello, mates!

My name’s John and I’m 15 years old. I am from London, the capital city of the UK. Today I’m writing about the things I like or don’t like. It isn’t easy because there are too many things to talk about. That’s why I have to concentrate my opinions on two or three topics.

To start with, let’s talk about food and drinks. I don’t like fish very much, but       I like meat. I really like fast food (pizza, hamburgers, chips, hot-dogs…), but my favourite snacks are pizza and hamburgers. Pizza is delicious with coke, but I prefer lemonade and orange juice to coke. I also like mineral water (sparkling or still), milk and white coffee. Tea is ok, but I hate alcoholic drinks! When it comes to fruit… I really adore strawberries, but pears are not my cup of tea. I like grapes and I love oranges! Apples are very good. You know the old saying: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. I’m not a fan of vegetables, but my parents and teachers say they’re very important. I think they’re right. I really hate broccoli, but carrots are ok. I detest cucumber salad, but I like mixed salad (lettuce and tomatoes). I’m crazy for mushrooms, but I really don’t like onions.

         And now… school! I love playing with my friends in the playground. I don’t like History very much and I hate my Maths lessons! Anyway, I like Gym and Art, but I prefer Science because I’m crazy for animals. I really like Music and I love my Portuguese lessons, but my favourite subject is English, of course!

         And you? What do you like?
