gustar EL VERBO GUSTAR : The verb gustar means “to please” or “to be pleasing to.” In Spanish, when a person likes something, he/she is literally saying that it “is pleasing to them”. The person doing the liking is the indirect object. This must always be expressed, at the very least, with an indirect object pronoun . The indirect object pronouns are: singular plural me te le nos os les If the person(s) doing the liking is expressed, “a” must come before it to indicate that he/ she, or whoever, is the indirect object. A Juan le gusta la cerveza. = Juan likes beer. If another pronoun is used instead of the name of the person doing the liking, usually for emphasis or clarification, then use one the following corresponding forms along with the indirect object pronoun (listed above). singular plural a mí a ti a él, a ella, a usted a nosotros a vosotros a ellos, a ellas, a ustedes Ex. A mí me gusta el pollo asado. = I like roasted chicken. The thing being liked is actually the subject of the sentence
