Gustar - Impersonal Verb


 

Although gustar is translated as to like, literally it means to be pleasing to. Hence, gustar is an impresonal verb.

gusta for singluar nouns
gustan for plural nous

Examples. Impersonal verbs are special because they agree with the plurality of what is being liked. Not with who is doing the liking.

Me gusta el café
I like coffee

Me gustan las novelas
I like novels

Nos gusta el café
We like coffee

Nos gustan las novelas
We like novels

Le gustan comer papas fritas
He likes eating chips
