  2. Trinken Sie gern Kaffee? (Do like to drink coffee?)
  3. Kochen Sie gern italienisch? (Do you like to cook Italian food?)
  4. Gehen Sie gern ins Restaurant? (Do you like go to a restaurant?)

  2. Ich trinke überhaupt nicht gern Kaffee.
  3. Ich koche gern italienisch.
  4. Ich gehe sehr gern ins Restaurant.
