Vocabulary quiz on hobbies and free time

What do you like doing in your free time? How do you unwind? I like going out on my mountain bike, but unfortunately, I don’t have as much time available as I would like. Another thing I’m getting more and more enthusiastic about is DIY. Yes, I really love changing  tacky old furniture into something completely different and unique. Hanging out with some friends having a beer and a laugh is another activity I like doing, but there are many others such as listening to music, reading  or escaping to the cinema every now and then; although many of the films on nowadays are not really  my cup of tea. You might agree with me if I say, that the only problem about having free time is not having enough of it, but there again, life isn’t perfect, is it?  🙂  What do you like doing? Here’s a vocabulary quiz for different hobbies. See if you can guess the word and after, think about which one suits you most?

Think or thinking ? Have or having? When dealing with stative verbs, we basically mean those verbs that describe a state instead of an action, but this can be a tricky thing  and sometimes a verb belongs to both categories depending on context. When can we use these  verbs in the progressive form? Here are a few tips along with a quiz.
