I'm not a native English speaker. Maybe you can help me with this sentence, I just want to know, what does it mean?

I just am not big on tucking my shirt in or ironing it or shaving.

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because we as a group do not purport to be experts on the Spanish Language, only on the English Language, and so requests for advice for translating into Spanish fall outside of our remit. – tchrist Jan 28 '17 at 16:47
  • @tchrist I know, not a problem I just wanna know the definition of that sentence and the answer was good, but anyway thanks. – joelmez4 Jan 28 '17 at 16:56
  • Be big on should be findable in any English dictionary worthy of the name. How you wish to translate that casual expression into a corresponding Spanish one will depend on the tone you are trying to convey and on which particular regional version of Spanish you’re aiming for. – tchrist Jan 28 '17 at 17:02

"I am not that big on..." means I am not very enthusiastic about doing something.

This is the North American version of the expression. In England you would say "I am not (that) keen on..."
