  • Business English for the workplace

  • hi Tim here with another 925 English

  • lesson. In today's lesson we're going to

  • learn how to talk about things you don't like

  • I'm a pretty positive person but

  • there are lots of things I just don't like:

  • getting stuck in traffic,

  • bad customer service, long meetings.

  • I really don't like long meetings. And you're

  • probably the same way. There are things

  • you just don't like and things you hate.

  • So how do we talk about these things?

  • How do we say we don't really like

  • something?

  • Well you can say exactly that: I don't

  • like getting stuck in traffic, for

  • example. To say you dislike something you

  • can just change a positive sentence into

  • a negative one. In the same way you can

  • say you're not all that fond of

  • something because being fond of

  • something means liking it. There are even

  • more ways to talk about dislikes.

  • You can say that something isn't really your

  • thing that's a useful expression if

  • you're talking about a preference so if

  • you're having the conversation about

  • where to go for lunch

  • you might say Greek food isn't really my

  • thing

  • you could also say i don't care for

  • greek food that's not really about

  • taking care of something rather to not

  • care for just means to not like

  • now how about practicing some of these

  • ideas

  • we're going to present some examples

  • after you hear each example try

  • repeating it yourself ready let's give

  • it a go

  • I don't really like living in a small

  • town

  • I'm not all that fond of long meetings

  • sales isn't really my thing

  • I don't care for the new TV ads

  • so those expressions are useful for

  • talking about basic dislikes and we

  • often use them when we're being polite

  • or trying not to make someone feel bad i

  • mean sometimes we don't want to sound

  • too negative right but then again

  • sometimes we really don't like something

  • and we want people to know it if someone

  • suggest something that you just can't

  • accept or if you need to really make it

  • clear how you feel

  • you might need a stronger expression in

  • this case you might say you really hate

  • something

  • hate is certainly a strong word

  • in fact you should be a bit careful with

  • it

  • nobody minds if you say you hate getting

  • stuck in traffic but if you say you hate

  • someone's idea they might get upset

  • in that case it's best to use a softer

  • expression other expressions you can use

  • our can't stand or more simply really

  • don't like so you might say I can't

  • stand waiting around in airports or I

  • really don't like waiting around in

  • airports those are both pretty strong

  • there's also another word that is

  • similar to hate but even stronger and

  • that word is to test if you say you

  • detest something then you really hated

  • and for an even stronger statement you

  • can say you absolutely detest something

  • for example I absolutely detest exams

  • that's about as strong as you can

  • express a dislike without cursing now

  • it's your turn to try using these

  • expressions

  • once again you'll hear some examples

  • after each example repeat what you hear

  • ready let's begin

  • I really hate websites that are slow

  • I can't stand this new software

  • I absolutely detest powerpoint

  • I really don't like public speaking at

  • all

  • ok so we've done some practice on

  • talking about things you don't like

  • but there are some things that you don't

  • really think positively or negatively

  • about for me that's how i feel about

  • where to go eat lunch

  • I don't really care and that's exactly

  • what you can say i don't really care

  • you could also say it's all the same to

  • me that's useful if a group is trying to

  • make a decision and it's not important

  • to you what they choose one more useful

  • expression is I don't mind if you don't

  • mind something it means it doesn't

  • bother you if you ask me whether I hate

  • android i'll say i don't mind it

  • and by that i mean i don't like or

  • dislike it

  • it's just ok let's practice using some

  • of these expressions for when you need

  • there like or dislike something once

  • again repeat the examples after you hear

  • them

  • I don't really care one way or the other

  • it's all the same to me

  • I don't mind taking the bus to work

  • alright we've been doing some great

  • practice but how does this sound in the

  • conversation we're going to hear a short

  • dialogue between two co-workers they are

  • talking about where to go for lunch

  • John suggested we meet at the new cafe

  • on the corner

  • hmm well I don't really care for that

  • cafe

  • alright so what about the deli across

  • the street

  • yeah okay I don't mind that place

  • how did that sound

  • one possibility is a new cafe on the

  • corner but the lady doesn't really care

  • for that cafe

  • however she doesn't mind the deli across

  • the street now it's your turn to

  • practice will repeat the dialogue but

  • this time we're going to be about the

  • woman's words you will have to say those

  • parts yourself remember to start by

  • saying you don't care for the cafe then

  • you'll say that you don't mind the deli

  • here we go John suggested we meet at the

  • new cafe on the corner

  • alright so what about the deli across

  • the street

  • alright so we've learned some great ways

  • to talk about things you don't like as
