Hi, my name’s Duc.

How are you? This is what I like do in my free time. I often play video games or watch TV. Or I go to the park and play football with my friends. I enjoy do this very much. I sometimes help my parents too. If I have homework, I`ll try to finish it first before do anything else. But I don`t like have lots of homework! I don`t mind to do homework but I hate spend all evening on it! On Saturday or Sunday, I love eat out with my family. The food is delicious! What about you?

6. Write a similar email to tell your friend about your free time, using the verbs of liking gerund or verbs of liking to-infinitives. Swap your work with a partner and check for mistakes.

Hi Hoa!

Today I am going to talk about my free time. In my free time, I like to spend time with my friends and family! I also like music a lot.

I sing in a choir at my university and I play the flute (though I do not practice as often as I should!). Right now, I also like going out for lots of walks. I just moved to Glasgow a few months ago, so I am getting used to my new city and its surroundings. I also like cooking a lot maybe it reminds me of being in the lab? :) So, I love to try out new recipes at home. What about you?
