Like & Enjoy… Learn Spanish With Paul



alright hello everyone this is Paul from Spanish with Paul calm and welcome to today's Spanish lesson I'm going to be referencing a lot of things that we covered in the free mini-course series that I already have on YouTube if you haven't been through that one yet I've put a link to the complete playlist for you on the screen now so that's videos one to ten plus the final test and I put that same link in the description box below this video as well coming up next I'll also give you a link to the course books that accompany that series this way you can be fully prepared for what we're about to cover next if becoming fluent in conversational Spanish is one of your goals for this year then consider clicking the link above to download my free course books that go along with all of my youtube lessons you can also subscribe to my channel to get a brand new Spanish lesson from me every single Monday so with that out of the way let's get started how do you say I like in Spanish megusta and what is the literal meaning of me gusta it means to me it is pleasing so here we have the pronoun Mae which means to me and then gusta it is pleasing now of course this is in the present tense and it's how we normally use this megusta but we can also apply it to the past and say I liked to achieve this the sound changes to may boost or notice we have an accent over the or sound at the end so Mae gusto is I liked as you can see it's just a small change we go from megusta to make gusto and this will stand not only for I liked but also I liked it either way the movie in Spanish is la le Cola so we have Lee kula again pay attention to the stress point over the I le Cola you'll often hear native Spanish speakers shorten this to simply luck Bailey but let's stick with the full version la película how would you say I liked the movie may gusto la película what's the word for last night a noche you can also say a year in la noche literally yesterday in the night they're more or less interchangeable let's stick with a no Jam how would you say yes I liked the movie last night si me gusta la película a noche if you like you could also put a notch a up front so you would have see a noche megusta la película to the ears of some native Spanish speakers this order would sound slightly more natural we can further extend this by saying I really liked this is something we do a lot in English in Spanish this would be me gusto mucho it's always in this order may gusto mucho for example I really liked the movie how would you say that me gusta mucho la película make sure you hold on to that word order May gusto mucho it's always that way in Spanish so whenever you see I really liked or I really liked very much it's always make you store mucho let's extend this one step further or we want to express his that you really really liked something or really liked something very much this is easy to do in Spanish because mucho goes to muchísimo notice again the accent point over the I so will cheese see more if we have an example like yes I really liked the movie very much or I really really liked the movie either way this would be C May gusto muchísimo la película notice again that the word order remains intact so whether it's mucho or muchísimo it always has that formula or that word order in Spanish once again try it for yourself how would you translate this see my gusto Oh chi-su mo la película aside from light you can also say enjoyed now the verb to enjoy in Spanish is this fruit dar to help you remember this you can think of enjoying fruit because you can see through this sound in the middle which reminds you of a fruit so to enjoy fruit these fruit dar helps you to create a link back to where that memory is stored for the verb these food are now to express I enjoyed it would be this fruit day again we have an accent point at the end of the word which is very important to obey otherwise you won't be understood these fruit day how would you say I enjoyed the movie this fruit de la película what about yes I enjoyed the movie last night see this food de la película are not chair to say I really enjoyed it's the same principle it would be peaceful day ultra how would you say I really enjoyed the movie this food day mucho la película now try this one yes last night I really enjoyed the movie very much how would you say that see a noche disfrute de muchísimo la película notice again mucho went to muchísimo so whenever you're expressing that you really enjoy it very much or that you really really enjoyed either one of those gets translated into Spanish as this fruit de muchísimo how would you say the book in Spanish el libro now say I liked the book may gusto Libre I really liked the book may gusto mucho el Libre now extended to I really really liked the book me gusta OTC more a Libra the verb to read is layer layer now something will commonly say in English is I liked reading the book meaning that we throw in this I and G I liked reading the book I liked walking I liked talking so we have this I and G in combination with I liked now in Spanish it works slightly different instead of going into ing you'll simply use whatever the full verb is so I liked to read or I liked to walk whatever it may be this is the equivalent in Spanish so I liked reading the book would be literally I liked to read the book may gusto lay air a Libra once again say that for yourself now I liked reading the book may gusto layer a Libra what's the verb to speak hablar and how do you say with you contigo now say I liked speaking with you yesterday me gusta hablar contigo a year notice that we used the full verb and literally said I liked to speak with you yesterday something you could also say is I enjoyed reading the book or I enjoyed speaking with you now the structure is just the same for what we were using with I liked first of all we have the verb to read which is lay year so to say I enjoyed reading the book would be literally again I enjoyed to read the book first of all can you remember how to say I enjoyed this full day here we are enjoying our fruit right this fruit day now how would you say I enjoyed reading the book this fruit a layer a Libra I enjoyed speaking with you yesterday this fruit a hablar contigo a year how do you say I really enjoyed speaking with you yesterday this will take mucho hablar contigo a year now try the next step I really really enjoyed speaking with you yesterday this fruit a muchísimo hablar contigo a year what's the verb to have dinner or to dine Sena now how would you say I liked having dinner with you last night me gusta se na contigo and no J what about I enjoyed having dinner with you last night this fruit de Sena Quantico and noche something else we also covered in the mini Co series was I would like can you remember how to say that may gustaría so we have me gusta for I like but megusta dia for I would like how did you say and I would like a megusta dia what's the verb to do a ser and how would you say to do it hacer lo what's the word for again otra vez let's put it together and I would like to do it again II me gustaría hacer lo otra vez what's the word for soon pronto so how would you say and I would like to do it again soon II me gustaría hacer lo otra vez Toronto now we have a slight problem with this word order of otra vez pronto here we have a literal translation from the English again soon otra vez pronto the sounds forced to the ears of a native Spanish speaker instead it should be the other way around in Spanish so they would say II me gustaría hacer lo pronto otra vez so in English we say again soon but in Spanish it's more common to say soon again so it's important that you remember to reverse the word order there whenever you see again soon in English as we commonly say you will switch that in Spanish too soon again let's practice how would you say I really enjoyed having dinner with you last night and I would like to do it again soon pick it out carefully disfrute a mucho Sena contigo a noche II me gustaría hacer lo pronto otra vez here we have the reversed word order soon again pronto otra vez how would you say I really liked speaking with you yesterday and I would like to do it again soon me gusta mucho hablar contigo I hear e me gustaría hacer lo pronto otra vez to Express very soon it would be muy pronto how would you say I would like to do it again very soon again be careful here with the word order me gustaría hacer lo muy pronto otra vez so it doesn't matter if you're saying soon or very soon you still switch the order in Spanish muy pronto otra vez if I liked is may gusto how do you say I didn't like no me gusta this would also mean I didn't like it no me gusta how would you say I didn't like it very much no me gusta mucho what's the word for the movie la película how do you say I didn't like the movie very much no me gusta mucho la película hopefully you remember to keep that word order intact what about I didn't like the book very much no me gusta mucho el libro to express with her would be con yeah how would you say I didn't like having dinner with her no me gusto say na koni area here again we're using the full verb I didn't like to have dinner with her instead of English we would have having this ing how would you say with him con el now say I didn't like speaking with him yesterday no me gusta hablar con el a year we can also say I didn't enjoy how would you do that no this fruit day so I enjoyed this food day but I didn't enjoy no this fruit day how would you say I didn't enjoy the film last night no this route de la película and noche I didn't enjoy the film very much No disfrute de mucho la película hopefully you didn't get tripped up by the word order here because you can see in English very much comes at the end of the sentence that's where it sounds most natural but in Spanish you will always have this full day mucho or gusto mucho so this is the word order that we must hold on to in Spanish the word for the meal is la cena this also means dinner let's say Anna how would you say I didn't enjoy the meal very much last night no dis full day mucho la cena and noche if I would like is May gustaría how would you say I wouldn't like know me gustaría this is often contracted altogether no me gusta Rhea how would you say I wouldn't like to do it again no me gustaría hacer lo otra vez let's try a longer one I didn't enjoy speaking with him yesterday and I wouldn't like to do it again No disfrute de hablar con la air in no me gustaría hacer lo otra vez let's try another how would you say I didn't like it and I wouldn't like to do it again just think it out step by step Noma Cousteau II know me gustaría hacer lo otra vez to express at all in Spanish is para nada how would you say I didn't like it at all no me gusta para nada I didn't like it at all and I wouldn't like to do it again no me gusta para nada e no me gustaría hacer lo otra vez

  1. He estado aprendiendo español contigo para semanas porque me gusta estudiar tú lección que está muchísimo claro. Estoy a punto de leer la revista cuando acado de terminar la película. Me gustó la película pero no entendí lo que significaba. disfruté ver la película con mi novia pero quería irme

  2. Think of it this way, mis amigos: "Gustar" and "disgustar" behave in Spanish in exactly the same manner as the English verb "to disgust" does, and in fact, "gustar," "disgustar," and "disgust" are cognates because they all come from the same Latin root word, "gustare."

    "Disfrutar," on the other hand, is not a cognate with those three words and doesn't come from the same Latin root word, so it doesn't behave the same way those three words do. Instead, it behaves like any other normal Spanish transitive verb (that is, any verb that can take a direct object).

  3. Excellent lesson, Paul. "Disfrutar" is probably an underused verb in Spanish, but it can be a great tool for beginners to master who are still confused by the rules for using "gustar" properly (since "disfrutar" behaves the same way that the English verbs "like" and "enjoy" do, whereas "gustar" always takes the INdirect object pronoun because of its literal meaning of "to please [me, you, him, her, it, us, them]" or "to be pleasing to [me, you, him, her, it, us, them]").

  4. Paul, I am interested in your main course; however, I have a question. I am an advanced intermediate student in Spanish. I would like to know if any of your lessons include hearing you speak Spanish or have native Spanish speakers speaking. To learn a language, one needs both. You must be able to read it, say it, hear it, write it, and most of all be able to understand it. If your course includes both, then I will definitely buy your course. Let me know. Thanks!

  5. I really hope u will see this comment and think about it. You are always making a video to ppl who are learning spanish for the first time. But u have a great mini cource to help them with the basics. So i would really like to see that u build up the difficultie in your video's for the ppl who watch it every time.

  6. Hi Paul… many thanks for the free lessons. …they're fantastic. In this lesson you've used "me gustó" for the past tense (preterite?), but shouldn't this be "me gusté"?

  7. Thank you for the tutorial, unfortunately I am at this moment in time unable to afford your full course so I very much appreciate your free tutorials, I am expanding my vocabulary through your videos and I hope it won't be too long before you upload another. Thank you Paul 🙂

  8. disfrute muchisimo tu leccion paul I really enjoyed your lesson paul hadt hafna gost bil lezzjoni tieghek pawl (oops sorry i forgot you can t read maltese) just joking !!
