ne pas aimer vs ne aimer pas?
In the notes above, it says:
"You can also use ne pas aimer beaucoup to say 'not like much'. Note that beaucoup will come after pas: "
Is this supposed to say ""You can also use "ne aimer pas beaucoup"?
This question relates to:French lesson "Aimer = to love, like something / someone"

Ne pas + <infinitive> is the most common instance where ne pas does not bracket the verb. For example:
C'est mieux avoir aimé une fois que ne jamais avoir aimé du tout. -- It is better to have loved once than never to have loved at all.
Note that ne jamais are together and stand before the past infinitive (avoir aimé).
