Welcome to twominenglish.com. Teaching you English through two-minute lessons.
In this lesson we will learn how to talk about our preferences and choices with the help of some conversations.
Rex: Hello Duffy. Let’s go buy a T-shirt.
Duffy: Alright. But I want a shirt, not a T-shirt.
Rex: Don’t you like T-shirts, Duffy?
Duffy: I prefer shirts to T-shirts.
Rex: So you choose to be formal rather than casual.
Duffy: Yes. I prefer formal wear.
Rex: That’s your choice, Duffy. But I always prefer a casual look.
Jina: Dyna, I have two passes for the fashion show.
Dyna: That’s good.
Jina: Don’t you wanna join me?
Dyna: No Jina. I don’t like to watch fashion shows.
Jina: C’mon Dyna! It’s just for a day!
Dyna: I prefer to go to a concert.
Jina: No Dyna. I can’t stand the loud noise at a music concert.
Duffy: George, I came to return this DVD. Give me another one.
George: What happened? Don’t you like horror movies?
Duffy: I like horror movies, but not movies like “Audition”. It’s brutal gore!
George: What kind of horror movies do you prefer?
Duffy: Something like “The Grudge” or “The Ring”.
George: I understand your choice now. You should watch “The Shutter”.
Duffy: Oh yes! I’ve heard about that one.
Dyna: There’s a whole lot of items in the menu.
Rex: Let’s have some shrimps.
Dyna: I don’t like seafood. I’ll have a steak.
Rex: I’m tired of meats. I want to eat some seafood today.
Dyna: You know what? I’m tired of meat, too. Alright then, let me check the menu.
Rex: Sure. Take your time.
