  • Another day of work complete, and oh boy, does teaching work up an appetite.

  • I'm starving.

  • (Alternatives to "I want.")

  • Mmm, I think I'm in the mood for spaghetti.

  • An alternative to I want is, "I'm in the mood for something."

  • Such as, "I'm in the mood for sushi," or "I'm in the mood to do something."

  • Like, "I'm in the mood to go shopping today."

  • According to the Cambridge English Corpus, "I'm in the mood for" is twice as common than "I'm in the mood to do something."

  • But "I'm in the mood for" is less often negated than "I'm in the mood to do something."

  • Normally, people say, "I'm not in the mood to clean today."

  • Or maybe I feel like Japanese food.

  • Also, instead of saying, "I want," you can say, "I feel like something."

  • Such as, "I feel like pizza today."

  • Or "I feel like doing something," such as "I feel like cooking today."

  • "Feel like" is 12 times more common than "in the mood for," and 25 times more common than "in the mood to."

  • You can find helpful information like this and lots more on the Cambridge English Corpus, a database of real language.

  • So, how else can you say, "I want"?

  • Tell me in the comments section.

  • If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up and share with all your contacts.

  • I'll see you soon. Bye.

Another day of work complete, and oh boy, does teaching work up an appetite.
