HI everybody, having seen the difficulties many people encounter with this verb, same as encantarwink, I am opening this thread in order to correct the posts accordingly.

The idea is to follow the a - z system using verbs. I would like you to make O N E sentence with a verb following the correct order. .

Game rules

1) Follow in alphabetical order.

2) Write a sentence in Spanish that includes gustar/encantar. Also provide the English translation for your sentence.

3) Don't forget to click on NEWEST to see the last letter played.

4) Use different persons, like your wife, your kids, plural forms, singular...

I will start with the letter A:


A mi marido le gusta arreglar el coche.

My husband likes mending his car.

Please read the instructions to do the thread correctly, any post that is not

following the instructions will be deleted!

  • Do you want photos, Heidita? - Brynleigh Sep 29, 2010 flag
  • yes, photos are great! - 00494d19 Sep 29, 2010 flag
  • I am sorry to have to be so drastic, but the last three posts showed that the members had not read the instructions at all. - 00494d19 Sep 29, 2010 flag
  • Not that it is incorrect, but in the USA it would be more common to "fix or repair" a car than "mend" it. - Yeser007 Sep 30, 2010 flag
  • "Mending" is used only for clothing in the U.S. - JoyceM Sep 30, 2010 flag

D: Dormir

Los fines de semanas, me gusta ir a dormir después una semana muy dura en mi universidad donde se puede ver gente de toda condición pero mi gato se gusta dormir todo el tiempo. Sin embargo, prefiero ir a dar un paseo en el parque hermoso a cerca de mi casa para relajar.

On the weekends, I like to go to sleep after a very tough week in my university where one can see people from all walks of life but my cat likes to sleep all the time. However, I prefer to go for a walk in the beautiful park close to my house in order to relax.

  • sorry......I posted this recently, but was working on it before. Mistake!!! :/ - Seb79 Sep 29, 2010 flag
  • .....it's accidentally posted after 'E'!!! :/ - Seb79 Sep 29, 2010 flag
  • después de una semana ...mi gato le gusta dormir..hermoso cerca de mi casa para relajarme. - 00494d19 Sep 29, 2010 flag
  • Your first sentence would be considered too long in English, a run-on sentence. Putting a period after "life" and starting a new sentence about your cat would help. - JoyceM Sep 30, 2010 flag
  • muchas gracias por tu ayuda!!! - Seb79 Oct 1, 2010 flag
