    There is an error in this exercise:

    3. he like work to abroad wouldn’t.
    The sentence should be “He wouldn’t like to work abroad.” But the correct answer is “He would like to work abroad.”

    Thanks for your site, it´s very good.

    Thanks for your web, it’s superb!

    I have a question regarding the usage of like: I have read in a dictionary you can use like+ to+ infinitive if you want to mean “I enjoy or even I prefer..”, is this right? it is not easy to distinguish between these two meanings, e.g. “I like jogging” already means I enjoy doing that sport, doesn’t it? so, could you explain the difference between “I like to jog” and “I like jogging”. Thanks a lot.

    Hi again Nicki,
    There is indeed a difference between “like doing something” and “like to do something”. The structure with the gerund is used when we speak about activities that we enjoy doing (I like walking in the mountain/ travelling abroad on holiday). The structure with the infinitive is used when we speak about preferences and choices. For example, “When I arrive at the office, I like to have a cup of coffee with my colleagues”/ “I like to go shopping early on Saturday mornings”. Hope this answers your question!
