    question about what they don't like

    The text we studied says: They don't like chocolate.
    I want my students to remember what these people don't like. How to ask: What do they not like? or What don't they like?

    Re: question about what they don't like

    What is it that they do not like?

    Both your suggestions are also fine.

    Re: question about what they don't like

    Thank you Anglica.
    Of course, "What is it that they do not like?' sounds better, but my students are beginners, they've been learning English for less than a month. I'll have to use "What don't they like?", if it's OK.

    You know your students best! I agree - keep it simple.
