Have a look at these conversations:
- Joe: Do you like pizza?
- Bob: Yes I do. And I like pasta.
- Joe: I do too. But I don’t like olives.
- Bob: Me neither. And I don’t drink wine
- Joe: I don’t either.
It can be a little confusing using such phrases as me too, so do I, me neither, etc. Have a look at the chart below. When talking about likes and dislikes the response you use depends on if you agree or disagree with the statement:
|I like pizza||Me too||I do to||So do I||I don’t|
|I don’t like pizza||Me neither||I don’t either||Neither do I||I do|
Points to remember:
- When you agree to a positive statement (I like pizza) use me too, I do too, or so do I.
- When you disagree to a positive statement (I like pizza) use I don’t.
- When you agree to a negative statement (I don’t like pizza) use me neither, I don’t either, or Neither do I.
- When you disagree to a negative statement (I like pizza) use I do.
I hope this was a helpful lesson. Do you like it? I do! Do you like pizza? Let me know.
