Hi,

I have been using the clause "I am interested in" to tell someone what my hobby is. However, I recently have found that you do say "I am into" to tell someone about your interest or hobby. So what I am wondering is which one do you usually use?

So say if I am interested in playing soccer, but I want to say in the other way, can you say "I am into playing soccer"? Are they the same in meaning?

Thanks in advance.

"I am into" is a colloquial term. It's frequently used and is fine for use when speaking to friends. You might not want to use it at a job interview, however.

Hi, as for me, I prefer 'I am into' but sometimes I use 'I am interested in' Emotion: wink

As far as I know, you could say, "My hobby is sleeping". But you neither say "I am interested in sleeping" nor "I am into sleeping"?
But you neither say "I am interested in sleeping" nor "I am into sleeping"?

Correction: But you say neither "I am interested in sleeping" nor "I am into sleeping"?

And I disagree with your conclusion. There's nothing wrong with those admissions. I'm into sleeping!
