Questions with Like


Like as a verb is used to express things we enjoy and take pleasure in.

Like can also be used as a preposition to make questions.


The word like can be used in different ways to form questions.



  • What do you like doing in the house?
  • What does your mother like doing in her spare time?

Personality or the characteristics of something

  • What is the microwave like?
  • What was the building like?

Physical appearance

  • What is Peter like?
  • What does the detached house look like?
  • Who does she look like?


  • What would you like to do this Thursday?
  • What would you like to eat?


We use like to make questions about:

  • Hobbies;
  • Personality or the characteristics of something;
  • Physical appearance (with the verb to look);
  • Preferences.


Like is used to make questions about hobbies, personality or the characteristics of something, physical appearance (with the verb to look) and preferences.

For example:
— “What does the guest room look like?” = Like is used to ask about the appearance of the room.
