  • Hi, everyone! Dan for BBC Learning English here.

  • Today we're going to talk about

  • 'don't mind' and 'doesn't matter'.

  • The verb 'mind' means 'dislike, be annoyed by

  • or object to'.

  • It's followed by (verb)ing and often used in

  • negatives and questions.

  • For example: Do you mind opening the window?

  • Sam: No, I don't mind.

  • Dan: If someone says 'I don't mind',

  • it means that they have no preference

  • or that they are happy for something to happen.

  • However, the verb 'matter' in English can mean

  • 'be important'.

  • 'English matters,' means

  • 'English is important'.

  • If we say 'it doesn't matter',

  • it means that the thing that we are talking about

  • is not important or not significant.

  • Do you want tea or coffee?

  • Sam: It doesn't matter.

  • Dan: OK!

  • Sometimes they can both mean the same thing.

  • Sam: Do you want chicken for dinner?

  • Dan: I don't mind!

  • Sam: Do you want chicken for dinner?

  • Dan: It doesn't matter to me.
