Lesson Plan Text


Likes and dislikes snakes and ladders game 


Snakes and ladders board 

FINISH- I love… 


I’m interested in…/ I’m keen on…. 


I don’t mind… 


I’m not very keen on… 


I don’t like….. at all 


I can’t stand…./ I can’t bear…. 




Rules of the game: 


Start at the bottom of the column, then ask your partner a question you think that the words in the box 

above (I can’t stand…/ I can’t bear…) will be the answer to, e.g. “How do you feel about (spiders)?” If 

they answer with the words in that box (but not if they answer with words from any other box), move up to 

that next box. Continue until you reach the top. If at any time they say an answer that is not in the next 

box up, you fall down to the very bottom and have to start again from “START HERE”. However, you 

can use the same questions as before if you can remember them. When you have asked the correct 

questions in order and reached the top, switch roles and play again.

Worksheet 2- Language presentation and practice 


Without looking at Worksheet 1, try to put the following expressions into order from the favourite at the 

top to the least favourite at the bottom: 


I love…/I don’t mind…/I’m interested in…/ I’m keen on…./ I can’t stand…./ I can’t bear…./ I’m not 

very keen on…/ I don’t like….. at all 








Can you remember your partner’s likes and dislikes? Change partners and tell your old partner’s likes 

and dislikes to your new partner as full sentences. Do they have any likes and dislikes that are the same? 


Are the expressions above usually followed by Infinitive (‘go’ or ‘to go’) or the –ing form (‘going’)? 


What is the difference between the forms below? 

I like to go to the dentist twice a year 

I like eating ice cream 


Which structure with “like” means “enjoy”? Which structure with “like” means “think it is a good idea 

to…”/ “feel better if I…”?
