Mensagem:    Yes, I know.   I myself have such difficulties, and had many more when I was in the beggining.
  There are some tricks (mnemonic).
  For example, any basic student knows the famous "I love you", you make them think "I like you" (it´s only to imagine that if I like you I love you...just for mnemonics here.)

    Then make them repeat these "likes" whenever they can.
     - I like milk, I like English, and I like you too.
     - And you Homer, what do you like?

    You talked about tendency, okay, it´s the Brazilian tendency to use "of", you make them think the tendency of not using it with "of".
 simple as that.
