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 … (don’t).”
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 don’t.
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 don’t 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 don’t like either swimming or drawing. ßI like neither swimming nor drawing.
Practice - Answer in negative ß¿Te gusta nadar? Do you like to swim? ß¿Te gusta caminar? Do you like to walk? ß¿Te gusta bailar? Do you like to dance ß¿Te gusta dibujar y leer?
