- For Teachers
Does the expression, "How do you like it" imply two meanings?
A : How do you like your steak?
B : Well done, please.
A: How do you like English?
B: I like it a lot.
Do you agree with this? Thank you so much as usual.

I sort of semi-agree, just about. In the first, you could substitute want for like, but I would use How would you like your steak for the first as you're asking someone about a particular instance of steak consumption.
"How do you like your steak?" is a different question asked when ordering than it is while you are eating.
In 5jj's immortal words, "Context is important".
I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
It was just before you got into the fight with the waiter.
