GUSTAR WITH INFINITIVES Chapter 3 – Spanish 7A
GUSTAR WITH INFINITIVES An infinitive tells the meaning of the verb without naming any subject (saying WHO is doing the action) or tense. There are three kinds of infinitive verbs in Spanish: those that end in “ar”, those that end in “er” and those that end in “ir”. – Cantar- to sing – Comer- to eat – Escribir- to write
GUSTAR WITH INFINITIVES Just like nouns, infinitives can be used after a verb like gustar to say what you and others like to do. Gustar means “to like” and then follow it with an action (verb). Before: Me gusta la musica.- I like music. (music = noun) NOW: Me gusta cantar. – I like to sing. (to sing= verb)
GUSTAR WITH INFINITIVES ALWAYS use gusta NOT gustan when following with infinitive verbs. Before: Me gustan los deportes.- I like sports. (sports= plural noun) NOW: Me gusta jugar al tenis.- I like to play tennis. (to play= infintive verb)
PRACTICA! Translate the following: 1.I like to play soccer. 2.I like to sing. 3.I like to write. 4.I like to read. 5.I like to take a walk. 6.I like to go to the movies. 7.I like to swim. 8.I like to listen to music. 9.I like to ride a bike. 10.I like to watch TV.
