    Gustar + nouns

    The Spanish equivalent of “I like” is me gusta, which literally means “it pleases me”. To indicate whether someone else likes something, you change the indirect object pronoun so the thing is pleasing to that person:

    forms for different people liking a singular thing
      persona singular persona plural
    primera (1a)

    me gusta (I like)

    nos gusta (We like)
    segunda (2a) te gusta (You like) os gusta (You all like)
    tercera (3a) le gusta (He/She likes) les gusta (They like)

    When you use the verb gustar, the verb form you choose will depend on whether what you like is a singular noun, a plural noun, or a verb.

    The verb form gusta is always in the singular when the noun that is liked or disliked is singular, because *it* is pleasing to the person:

    • (A mí) me gusta la casa. (I like the house. Literally: The house pleases me.)

    The verb form gustan is always in the plural when the noun is plural or there are two nouns, because *they* please the person:

    • (A mí) me gustan las casas. (I like the houses. Literally: The houses please me.)

    Some other words that work the same way as gustar:

    • Doler (to hurt; literally: to be painful) — Me duelen los pies. (My feet hurt / are hurting me.)
    • Encantar (to love; literally: to be enchanting) — A los mexicanos les encantan los dramas coreanos. (Mexicans love Korean dramas.)
    • Molestar (to mind; literally: to be irritating, bothersome) — ¿Le molesta la música? No, estoy bien. (Do you mind the music? No, I’m fine.)



    QUERER (to want)
      singular plural
    primera persona quiero queremos
    segunda persona quieres queréis
    tercera persona quiere quieren
    • Yo quiero una vacación. (I want a vacation.)


    Stem-changing verbs e-ie

    With this group of verbs, the stem vowel e changes to an ie in all of the forms except the first and second person plural.

    Comenzar (to start, to begin)

      Singular Plural
    1a comienzo comenzamos
    2a comienzas comenzáis
    3a comienza comienzan
    • Cerrar (to close)
    • Comenzar (to start, to begin)
    • Empezar (to start, to begin)
    • Entender (to understand)
    • Pensar (to think)
    • Preferir (to prefer)
    • Perder (to lose)
    • Querer (to want)
    • Sentir (to feel)
    • Tener (to have) (yo tengo, tú tienes…)
    • Venir (to come) (yo vengo, tú vienes…)


    Adverbios de modo

    Spanish turns many adjectives into adverbs by adding the suffix -mente to the feminine singular form of the adjective.

    • normal → normalmente (normally)
    • similar → similarmente (similarly)
    • triste → tristemente (sadly)
    • frecuente → frecuentemente (frequently)
    • rápido → rápidamente (rapidly, quickly)
    • largo → largamente (at length)
