Things I like doing…

A ‘hobby’ is something that you like doing. Usually a hobby is something that you do in your free time.

Hobbies can be anything but often they are sports or other interesting things. They help us relax and have fun when we are not working or studying.

When we talk about hobbies in English we use like + ing to say what we like doing.

  • Example 1: I like playing football
  • Example 2: I like listening to music

To ask someone about their hobbies you can say:

  • ‘What are your hobbies?’
  • ‘What do you like doing in your free time?’

You can also give a full answer using ‘because’ to say why you like doing something.

  • Example 1: I like swimming because it is fun!
  • Example 2: I like shopping because I like buying new clothes.

What are your hobbies and why do you like doing them?
