    Question correct usage

    I would like to ask about a usage, whether it is right or wrong.For eg if some one enjoyed a lot than can we say : He enjoyed like anything.

    Re: correct usage

    Hello DB

    Yes, in British English you can say "I enjoyed it like anything" to mean "I enjoyed it very much".

    You're most likely to encounter it in casual conversation, though; it wouldn't be appropriate in a formal context.
