Negatives P. 36 Realidades 1
Negatives ßTo make a sentence negative in Spanish, you usually put no in front of the verb or expression. ßIn English you usually use the word not. ßNo me gusta cantar. ßI do not like to sing.
Negatives ßTo answer a question negatively, in Spanish you often use no twice. ßThe first no answers the question. ßThe second no says, I do not … (dont).
Negatives ßThis is similar to the way you answer a question in English. ß¿Te gusta escribir cuentos? ßDo you like to write stories? ßNo, no me gusta. ßNo, I dont.
Negatives ßIn Spanish, you might use one or more negatives after answering no. ß¿Te gusta cantar? ßDo you like to sing? ßNo, no me gusta nada. ßNo, I dont like it at all.
Negatives ßIf you want to say that you do not like either of two choices, use ni…ni: ßNo me gusta ni nadar ni dibujar. ßI dont like either swimming or drawing. ßI like neither swimming nor drawing.
