Students then had some exercises to do, to practice these new verbs. They will need to know all the stem-changing verbs for the midterm next week.
The midterm will be given on two days: Wednesday, Jan 29th and Thursday Jan 30th. Today students received the study guide for Unit 4.2 and 4.3. All the other unit study guides are on this blog. I will not be passing them out again. If a student lost theirs, they need to print them out again.
Using gustar verbs:
· Gustar and other verbs like gustar
Gustar is not a regular verb because you do not use subject pronouns before each verb. Instead, you use the indirect object pronouns: me, te, le, nos, os, les
Me gusta(n) Nos gusta(n)
Te gusta(n) Os gusta(n)
Le gusta(n) Les gusta(n)
Another verb that works like gustar is encantar. It translates as to love, a thing not a person, as in to really like something.
Me encanta(n) Nos encanta(n)
Te encanta(n) Os encanta(n)
Le encanta(n) Les encanta(n)
You never put the subject pronouns (yo, tú, él, etc) in front of the gustar verbs.
Also the verb needs to agree with the object that follows, either singular or plural.
Me gusta el perro. = I like the dog.
Me gustan los perros. = I like the dogs.
