5 More likes and dislikes

You’ll now build some more sentences expressing likes and dislikes. You can use the adverb gern and all associated expressions with any verb – it does not have to refer to food and drink – but you will need to consider the word order carefully. Remember that the verb usually comes second in a statement. The adverb gern then has to be placed close to the verb it refers to. However, if you want to express a dislike, the word nicht has to be even closer to the verb.

Activity 5

Place the words in the correct order to create five sentences.
