Gusta instead of gustan?

Shouldn’t it be “gusta” instead of “gustan”?

Great question!

If the verb “gustar” refers to a noun we either use “gusta” or “gustan” depending on if it’s singular or plural.
The noun following “gustar” is most of the time used with a definite article.

In this example we have a plural noun – > los animales, animals
This is why we use gustan.

The singular version would be.
Te gusta este animal?

We also use gustan with an enumeration of singular/independent nouns.
Me gustan el libro, la playa y los juegos.

No se puede

@Hermanotrois – I get what you’re saying now, but it doesn’t mean “to please” exactly. It means that “it is pleasing”. See Fancisco’s comment below.

@Hektor, ¿Qué es exactamente lo que no se puede?

Elfilosofo, so gustarse is one of those tricky little reflexive verbs that once you get the hang of it, it just works.

To start with, it’s better to think of gustar to mean “to be pleasing to”.

What i mean by this is
me gusta = it is pleasing to me
Te gusta = it is pleasing to you
Le gusta = it is pleasing to him/her
Nos gusta = it is pleasing to us
Os gusta =it is pleasing to you pl (España)
Les gusta it is pleasing to you pl (Latin America) or it is pleasing to them

Okay! So here we have the pronouns laid out, so when gustar is in the 3rd person (gusta) it’s very common to see these examples.

Now obviously gustar conjugates with all its person forms as well, but there’s 2 main ones to know as we have talked about previously; gusta y gustan.

You can use the other forms like me gustas = you are pleasing to me (i like you a lot), but for now let’s stick with gusta and gustan.

So gustan talks about the object that you enjoy but in the plural (digamos las naranjas en este ejemplo)

Me gustan las naranjas – the oranges are pleasing to me
Te gustan las naranjas – the oranges are pleasing to you
Le gustan las naranjas- the oranges are pleasing to him/her
Nos gustan las naranjas- the oranges are pleasing to us
Os gustan las naranjas – the oranges are pleasing to you pl (Esp)
Les gustan las naranjas – the oranges are pleasing to you pl (L.A) o are pleasing to them

Hope this helps! Reflexive verbs are not an easy thing to master!

@Rest, @Hektor – What is confusing about this is that the question is being directed at a single person. It seems like gustan would be used when the question is directed at more than one person.

@elfilosofo no puedes porque gusta es para singular y gustan para el plural

here’s an assist…:D
I believe gustar means “to please”.
so what pleases what is the question.
In all examples I can find the thing you like does the pleasing to you.
So you conjugate based on the thing doing the whom or whatever.
I assume if nothing else is mentioned it is a generalness that pleases.
The spanish seem to realy hate pronouns but in french there is the pronoun “on”.
without my stupid complex stuff…it basically means people, the world, the situation etc.
So when you say me gusta. you ‘re saying “the it” pleases me.
this is why gusta and not gusto…get your mind out the gutter! 😀
But in all seriousness, to say you pleasure yourself you would say me gusto..which, I suppose could also mean it pleased me: me gustō.
I am certain there is some beat to death pun there.
As I write this I am thinking “talk like yoda”
animals please me.
house pleases me
generalness pleases me
and then flip it.
except in the case of general-ness. just think pleases me it does, flip and drop the “it does”…. me gusta….
So, in your example, spanish speakers are not saying or even think “I like the animals”. Instead they are saying the animals please me.
So you conjugate on the thing doing the pleasing!
I hope that helps. 😉
Now, one can say “la amabo” or “me gusta ella” at the same time. Also, su quiero”!.
I love her, I want her or SHE pleases me.
Apparently the english, or the storms (to be fair), kicked the spanish butt so hard they could not decide how to treat this expression for centuries!
I’m joking ofcourse.
I hope you do well in your studies!
Think though how those different expressions might shape your world view. One big thing in university now is the affects of language on initial thinking bias.
Anyways, said my stupid stuff. good luck.

Sentence info.

The sentence “¿Te gustan los animales?” is a Spanish question that translates to “Do you like animals?” in English. Here is a breakdown of how the sentence is formed:

1. “¿Te”: This is a direct object pronoun that means “you” in this context. It’s placed before the verb to indicate who the action is directed towards.

2. “gustan”: This is the third person plural form of the verb “gustar,” which means “to please” rather than “to like” when translated literally. In Spanish, “gustar” works differently than the English verb “to like.” Instead of the subject liking something, the thing is pleasing to the subject. When you use “gustar,” you’re saying something along the lines of “Animals are pleasing to you?”

3. “los”: This is the definite article for masculine plural nouns, “the” in English.

4. “animales”: This is the noun “animals,” which is masculine and plural.

To remember it, you can think of “gustar” as a flip in perspective from “liking” to “being pleased by.” So, the sentence is asking if animals are pleasing to you, instead of if you like animals.

Alternate ways to ask “Do you like animals?” in Spanish:

1. “¿Les gustan los animales?” – This is another way to say it politely or to a group (the “les” implies “to you all” or “to them”).

2. “¿Gustas de los animales?” – A less common variation that might be found in some regions.

3. “¿Te agradan los animales?” – Using a verb that is closer to “like” in terms of construction.

4. “¿Eres fan de los animales?” – A more informal way that uses the term “fan” much like in English, implying if you are a fan of animals.

A possible response to “¿Te gustan los animales?” would be:

“Sí, me gustan los animales.” (Yes, I like animals.)


“No, no me gustan los animales.” (No, I don’t like animals.)
