    I can ride a horse.
    I like reading books, watching TV and swimming.

    (like + -ing)

    I like doing all those things too, except swimming because I can't.

    Good job, but I like to see that Oxford comma in there!

    Luizao why your are using (like + -ing)?

    Re: girl

    Hey,

    because you can't say I like speak English.

    We say I like speaking. (generally after "like" we use a gerund -ing)

    You could also say I like to speak (but not "like speak)

    p.s, Then use the comma!!!
