verbs like gustar | indirect objects | other uses | facilexico vocabulary


Verbs like "gusta" - With Indirect Objects

pleases, interests, enchants, fascinates, satisfies, displeases, bothers/annoys, confuses, bores, aches/hurts


MINI-LESSON

Reflexive & Non-reflexive Indirect-Object Pronouns

This vocabulary includes verbs like "gusta" ("pleases").

These are verbs that always use a direct object in English ("Something pleases him") but usually use an indirect object in Spanish ("Algo le gusta").

With these verbs in Spanish, the indirect object is the first and only object of the verb, something that never happens in English. In Spanish, note that most of these verbs can also be used with direct objects for a slight difference in meaning, a nuance that is hard to explain.

Another verb that follows this pattern in Spanish is "importa", which in English is expressed with an object of a preposition: "eso me importa" expresses "that matters to me.

There are many other verbs in Spanish that follow this indirect-object pattern that require very different wording/structures in English: "queda", "sobra", "falta", etc.

Also remember that the Spanish objects "me/te/nos/se" can be either direct or indirect. In other words, in these four cases, the direct-object pronouns and the indirect-object pronouns are spelled exactly the same.

Make sure to SAY every answer in Spanish before you click it.

Part 1


Adjectives to Describe Units of Time

cold, cool/fresh, warm/hot, clear, cloudy, sunny, windy, snowy

SPELL IT - A SUNNY DAY!

This activity is designed to include sound files, but they aren't ready!

In Spanish, determining adjectives like "this..." and "several..." come before the noun (just like in English), but descriptive adjectives like "windy" and "sunny" usually come after.

The cursor starts before the noun, and after typing the determining adjective, you have to press the space bar twice to move the cursor behind. Then you can type descriptive adjective.

Also note: since these two-word answers are unusually long, it will only make you re-do the answer once. However, the second time the "next" key will be disabled!

The Verb "Being" ser

is, was, will be, would be, has been, had been, etc.

MATCH IT - IT IS A SUNNY DAY

These sentences use forms of the verb "es" (instead of "está").

Make sure to read the notes on the first screen of practice.

Part 2


The Verb "Being" with Adjectives

is, was, will be, would be, has been, had been, etc.

MATCH IT

Most Spanish verbs have verb-tense forms that correspond well to English in meaning and in use.

This practice will be more challenging, as this correspondence breaks down a bit the verb "being": in English, there are two gaps in the forms, two forms that should exist but don't: "does be" and "did be".
