Hi everyone, welcome to english-learning.net. I hope you are well today

In this lesson, we’re going to learn some different ways to express what you do not like.

1. I don’t like…

This is a direct, straight-forward expression used to tell people something you are interested in. For example:

  • I don’t like soccer and baseball.
  • I don’t like noisy and selfish people.

2. I’m not into …

This is the opposite of “I’m into”. It tells people you are not passionate about something. For example:

  • I’m not into heavy metal. I find them really boring.
  • I’m not really into sports, yes, I’m a couch potato.

3. I’m not a fan of ….

This expression gives people the impression that you don’t have a strong interest in something. For example:

  • I’m not a fan of superheroes movies.
  • I’m not a fan of pop music.

4. I dislike…

“Dislike” basically is the opposite of “like”. If you dislike something, you do not like it. For example:

  • I dislike being left alone.
  • I dislike those noisy neighbors.

5. I hate…

This expression adds up a strong discontent and disfavor to your statement. For example:

  • I hate spiders and rats
  • I hate people who are dishonest and fake.

6. I can’t bear…

7. I can’t stand…

These two expressions show the highest level of discontent. They mean you cannot accept or get close to some things because of the discomfort they bring to you.  For example:

  • I can’t bear her complaints. That’s so annoying.
  • I can’t stand blood, that’s why I never go to the hospital.
