How do you say "they like orange juice" in Spanish?
¨Les gusta zumo de naranja¨ In the case of Gustar - to like, the form is related to what is liked, not who does the liking! So it ¨les¨for the plural ¨they¨, but ¨gusta¨ for ¨like¨ because it refers to the singular article or subject juice, ¨Zumo¨ or ¨Jugo¨if you are American.
- A ellos les gusta el jugo de naranja - Zumo, jugo and even néctar can be the same, but jugo is more commonly used in most Spanish speaking countries. Zumo is the juice that has been produced by pressing a fruit and has no water added to it. Jugo is the same, but it can have water added to it to make it go further or to make it more palatable.
- I personally say. "Jugo de naranja" probably because when I think about it, I don't call other juices "zumo" I.E. Grapefruit, Jugo de toronja, Mango juice, Jugo de mango, grape fruit, jugo de uva, etc.
