In Spanish, we use verb ‘gustar’ to express actions related to the senses, preferences, desires or interests and ambitions. It is the verb that you should conjugate whether you like a food or a person. But, attention!, ‘gustar’ is also a verb to dream when we desire things. Therefore, to work with this post let yourself be carried away by the desires, wishes, fantasies, illusions or ambitions expressed in these 15 sentences and the MP3 added:
As we are going to daydream, we are going to use the verb to like in conditional, simple, and instead of other verbs like ‘to wish’, ‘to want’ or ‘to seek’.
Remember that we use verb ‘gustar’ accompanied by a pronoun (me, te, se, lo, la, we, us, os, las, les, las) and when we introduce the sentence with the preposition ‘a’, it needs ‘mí’, ‘ti’, ‘él’, ‘ella’, ‘ello’, ‘nosotros’, ‘vosotros’, ‘ellos’ and ‘ellas’.
