Exercises on the Spanish verb gustar

The Spanish verb gustar is used to express that you like something in Spanish. However, the verb itself means to please and the Spanish sentence therefore differs from the English in terms of structure.
gustar = to please
Example: The sentence I like the music would in Spanish be me gusta la música - corresponding to the music pleases me.

The Spanish Study offers a tool allowing you to practice the use of the verb gustar with full user control of the level of difficulty of the exercises. See examples below.

  • Answer using gustar + dative pronoun
    In this type of exercises you are asked to answer the question by inserting the correct form of gustar and the correct dative pronoun. Ex:
    te gusta el coche? - sí, me gusta mucho
    ¿qué piensas del perro?
    qué = what
    pensar = think
    perro = dog

    You can increase the level of difficulty by allowing both singular (gusta) and plural (gustan) forms of gustar:
    ¿te gusta trabajar?
    trabajar = work

  • Rewrite using gustar + dative pronoun
    In this type of execises you are asked to rewrite the sentence using gustar + dative pronoun. Ex:
    adoro a los niños - me gustan los niños
    adoras las fábricas
    las fábricas
    adorar = worship, adore
    fábrica = factory

    You can choose to include all dative pronouns (me, te, nos, os, le, les).
    (Maria) adora la paella - le gusta la paella
    (Alexander) adora los sofás
    los sofás
    adorar = worship, adore
    sofá = sofa

    Furthermore you can work with sentences with double dative object. Ex:
    Maria adora los dulces - a Maria le gustan los dulces
    tú adoras leer - a ti te gusta leer
    tú adoras los sillones
    los sillones
    adorar = worship, adore
    sillón = armchair

All the types of exercises above can be mixed as it pleases you. You will find the exercises on gustar under grammar in the top menu.
