some questions hi, I have some questions. First of all, I would like to know if there is a sentence that it emphasizes more that ''I am embarrassed''. What's more, it's the same if i say '' I dont want to go outside'' and ''i dont feel like going outside. What's the difference?

To show extreme embarrassment, you can say, "I was mortified!" People usually say, "I don't feel like..." when they don't have a particular reason for not doing something. Another time we might use "I don't feel like it...." is if we don't want to explain ourselves to someone else. It is a way to deflect a person's question, so even if we have a reason, we don't want to share that reason. The meaning a person intends will come through their tone of voice or facial expressions. "I don't want to go outside" doesn't really give us an idea of why a person doesn't want to. It is simply a statement.
