quisiera vs gustaria
whats the difference between quisiera & gustaria they both mean "I would like"
If someone can explain to me that'll be very helpfull.
Quisiera is the imperfect subjunctive of querer (to want)
gustaría is the conditional of gustar (to be pleasing)
These are 2 ways to ask for things politley.
Me gustaría una bebida, por favor.
Quisiera una bebida,por favor.
Used in this way there really is no difference in the meaning that is conveyed to the listener.
Gracias, entiendo ahora.
I understood what they were I was just confused about if one meant something a little different than the other.
well, quisiera comes from querer, to want, and gustaria comes from gustar, to like.
