Spanish Verb Gustar

December 13, 2012 1 comment

gustar250Gustar is so important that we have dedicated an entire page to it in our new level 2 Spanish for Kids section.

The verb gustar is used to express the idea of ‘liking’ something or someone. The key to correct use is to think of it in terms of that something or someone being pleasing to me, you, us or them.

Once you get a handle on the rules for using gustar it quickly becomes easy to use it.

This lesson will take you through those simple rules for using gustar in the present tense.  Listen to various present tense forms of gustar when referring to single objects and in the plural form when referring to several objects.  Then move on to some actual sentences to see how it can be used for questions and statements.

Head on over the SpanishTown.ca to get started.
