Get your notebook, you’ll want it today!

Los gustos – Things we like to do
Talking about things we like to do in life is easy in Spanish! Besides being easy, it’s a great way to build tons of vocabulary fast.

We’ve already seen that words like…
I have – Tengo…una pluma, un cuaderno, 2 hijos
I want – Quiero…un burrito, 2 enchiladas, más café
There is/are – Hay…una salchiconería cerca de aquí, lagos y ríos

…allow us to take just one word and build lots of vocabulary quickly and in context.


Today we’ll add one more to the list. You’ll like this one! It’s super high frequency!  Use this structure socially, in travel and in work Spanish.

¿Qué te gusta hacer? – What do you like to do?

la Pregunta – the question

¿Te gusta… – Do you like…?
…cocinar? – to cook?
…estudiar español? – to study Spanish?
…salir con amigos? – to go out with friends?


la Respuesta – the answer

Sí / No me gusta… – Yes, / No, I (don’t) like…
…cocinar? – to cook?
…estudiar español? – to study Spanish?
…salir con amigos? – to go out with friends?


What other activities can we add to this?

¿Te gusta…
…leer? – to read?
…ecribir? – write?
…escuchar música? – to listen music?
…ir al cine? – to go to the movies?
…mirar la tele? – to watch TV?

…hacer ejercicio? – to exercise?
…viajar? – to travel?

We can also combine this with the days of the week to get a little review in.
