Paper heart

Like

The transitive verb to like is most commonly translated using the intransitive verb gustar + an indirect personal pronoun:

 

  •  I like wine = me gusta el vino

  •  we like the house = nos gusta la casa

  •  I like apples = me gustan las manzanas

  •  we like apples = nos gustan las manzanas

 

If the full indirect object is mentioned, the indirect object pronoun must still be included:

 

  •  my father doesn’t like traveling = a mi padre no le gusta viajar

 

The translation of do you like it? is simply ¿te gusta?
