Likes and Dislikes

Activity 1

Ana Belén is hosting a game show. The contestants are telling us what they like to do.

Can you spot the phrase for ‘I like…’? Yes, it’s ‘me gusta…’. Could you tell what question Ana Belén asked them? It was ‘¿Qué te gusta?’ which means ‘What do you like?’.

Find a partner and practise taking it in turns to ask and reply. Here’s a table to help you, it has some answers you could use:

Language in this activity

SpanishPronunciationEnglish
¿Qué te gusta?¿keh teh goostah?What do you like?
Me gusta bailarmeh goostah bylahrI like dancing
Me gusta pintarmeh goostah peentahrI like painting
Me gusta jugarmeh goostah huugahrI like playing
Me gusta jugar al tenismeh goostah huugahr al tehneessI like playing tennis
Me gusta jugar al fútbolmeh goostah huugahr al fuutbollI like playing football

Once you’ve practised that, try saying ‘No me gusta’ which means ‘I don’t like’

Now you’re ready to do the activity sheet. Print it out and follow the instructions on there. If you don’t have a printer, just copy out and fill in the sheet on some paper. You can draw your own pictures, too.

Activity 2

Ana Belén asks the contestants a bit more about what they like and don’t like. Can you hear them saying ‘me gusta’ and ‘no me gusta’?

Practise saying your likes and dislikes in full sentences - you could use objects around your house to do this. When you’re happy with that, print off the activity sheet and follow the instructions on there. If you don’t have a printer, just copy out and fill in the sheet on some paper. You can draw your own pictures, too.
