Maggie and Julia are having a sleepover. Maggie is showing Julia some music and asking whether she likes it.
Can you tell what they say? The key phrases to remember are:
|¿Te gusta?||¿teh goostah?||Do you like it?|
|Me gusta||meh goostah||I like it|
|Me gusta mucho||meh goostah moochoh||I like it a lot|
|No me gusta||noh meh goostah||I don't like it|
Find some objects (this could be food, drinks, toys etc) and a partner. One person should hold an object and ask the other ‘¿Te gusta?’ and they can reply with ‘Me gusta’ or ‘No me gusta’.
Once you’ve had a few practices at asking and replying, 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.
