How to form gustar
• To talk about what we like, we use the verb
gustar.

pronouns. They are:
• (A mí) me
• (A nosotros) nos
• (A ti) te
• (A vosotros) os
• (A él, ella, Ud) le • (A ellos(as), Uds.) les
What are those words in
parentheses?

• (A ti) te
• (A él, ella, Ud) le
• (A nosotros) nos
• (A vosotros) os
• (A ellos, ellas, Uds.) les
They are used to clarify and
