What Does Mi Gusta Mean In Spanish

My rcfereform.org teacher from last year told me that "me gusta" and also "a mí me gusta" expect the same thing: I like. However before, "me gusta" is a much more straightforward method to say it. As an example, she told us that "I"m" is the very same point as saying "I am," but it"s more straightforward. Therefore, it"s the exact same with "me gusta" and also "a mí me gusta."

However before, this year, my new rcfereform.org teacher tends to use "a mí me gusta" a lot, and also I think she thinks that "me gusta" is wrong, or at leastern "a mí me gusta" is a far better means to say "I choose."

Who"s correct? Are they really the very same thing?

They really are the exact same point however, a mí me gusta is really an emphasis that you really prefer somepoint. A mí me gusta is also a great way to answer a question. For example, "¿a quién le gusta...?" You would certainly answer using, "a mí me gusta..."

In some societies you deserve to even use the a mí as soon as you are speaking through someone you would refer to as usted. Basically it is a really excellent way to emphasize your liking.

Some tips:

Make sure to constantly usage the me when you are talking about yourself liking somepoint.Kcurrently who or what you favor. This can change whether the sentence is a mí me gusta, gustan, or gustas. Kcurrently your conjugations

A mí me gustaría pensar que boy lo mismo. Sin embargo, esto incide en una cosa que me gusta mucho del castellano: que tiene muchos matices.

You watching: What does mi gusta mean in spanish

Bromas aparte, sí tiene diferencia, aunque no mucha. Como toda frase, el orden y el uso de pronombres matiza su sonicarry out y senticarry out. Si decimos "a mí" es como cuanperform en inglés se empieza con un "to me": connota que es algo muy individual, ponienperform el acento en ese hecho en posible contraposición a la opinión de el resto de la gente. Cuanperform no se usa "me gusta" a secas puede tener una connotación menos polémica, como una expresión de preferencias.

He aquí un par de ejemplos:

¿No te gusta mi amiga? Pues a mí me gusta y mucho

Me gusta levantarme tarde los fines de semana

You"re right, the 2 phrases expect specifically the exact same point. You have the right to use either, but I think it"s even more common to hear it favor your teacher speaks it. Let me explain what that extra component does.

The verb gustar literally indicates to please.

Me gusta la comida. --> The food pleases me. (I like the food.)

When you include the added a mí, it clarifies whom is being pleased

A mí me gusta le comida. --> The food pleases me. (I like the food.)

The two sentences intend specifically the exact same point, however through the extra part a mí, you are clarifying whom is being pleased. You might ask why that is necessary, bereason the pronoun me currently mentions the subject as me. Well consider this sentence:

Le gusta la comida. --> The food pleases him/her/it. (He/she/it likes the food.)

Who precisely likes the food? To protect against confusion the extra component is included and you deserve to watch it clarifies who specifically is the subject:
