Comer - definition in English
I am very new to this site and almost as new to Español.
I need clarification for the above word. I know it means "to eat". When used - Como una fresa - I eat a strawberry, as in the lesson, does it mean "I like to eat a strawberry" or "I am eating a strawberry" in English?
Thanks in advance!!
Welcome to SpanishDict, sibemom2002!
Good question! You are correct, the phrase "Como una fresa" could be either "I eat a strawberry" or "I am eating a strawberry". However there is a different verb to use when you want to say that you like something. Look up 'gustar' in the dictionary for an explanation of how to use it!
We hope to see you around on the forum!
I think "I like to eat a strawberry" would be Me gusta comer fresca. Como una fresca would be just "I eat a strawberry". And I am eating a strawberry would be Me estoy comiendo una fresa.
And I am eating a strawberry would be Me estoy comiendo una fresa.
Hi speaksomespanish! That's pretty close. Another way to say I am eating a strawberry would be "Estoy comiendo una fresa."
