Do You Like Oranges?

SCENARIO
Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or a work colleague. You are talking about the things each one of you like. At some point the other person says to you something like: "do you like oranges?"

In Spanish, the other person could choose to be less formal and say:
¿Te gustan las naranjas?

Alternatively, he/ she could choose to be more formal and say:
¿Le gustan las naranjas?


OUR TIP
The question is an invitation for you to say whether or not you like oranges. A yes/no answer may be strictly sufficient. However, with little effort, your answer could be a lot more informative.

Here are some examples of how you could reply:
  • Sí, me gustan las naranjas (yes, I like oranges);
  • Sí, me gustan bastante las naranjas (yes, I quite like oranges);
  • Sí, me gustan mucho las naranjas (yes, I like oranges very much);
  • No, me gustan muy poco las naranjas (no, I don't like oranges very much);
  • No, no me gustan las naranjas (no, I don't like oranges);
  • No, no me gustan mucho las naranjas (no, I don't like oranges very much);
  • No, no me gustan nada las naranjas (no, I don't like oranges at all);

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Te gustan las naranjas?
