Likes and Dislikes

Activity 1

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:

Language in this activity

SpanishPronunciationEnglish
¿Te gusta?¿teh goostah?Do you like it?
Me gustameh goostahI like it
Me gusta muchomeh goostah moochohI like it a lot
No me gustanoh meh goostahI 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.

Activity 2

Joe loves karate. Here he is telling us a little bit about it.

Once you’ve watched the video, practise saying ‘Me gusta’ and ‘no me gusta’ with foods/sports/activities after them. Here's some ideas for sentences you could use:

Here are a couple more activity sheets to do if you have time - they’ll help you completely understand this topic - as it can be a bit tricky! If you don’t have a printer, just copy out and fill in the sheets on some paper. It might help to draw your own pictures.
