As I would like to use "like to" ( which I've read somewhere that is a semi-modal verb) in different tenses I encountered some problems to use it. What I mean "like to" as a modal verb similar to "be to" (I am to do sth. etc.) Is the meaning of "like to" close to "I want" in this case? The third sentence doesn't sound good for me or am I wrong?
Please look at the sentences below.
- I like to read.
- I liked to read.
- I will like to read.
Or should like to be used in different example to be a semi-modal?
