Jessi: Top 25 Spanish Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 9: Do you like Spanish food? (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Spanish learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.)
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question Do you like Spanish food? In Spanish this is
Javier: ¿Te gusta la comida española?
The first word in the question is
Javier: te
Jessi: meaning something like you in English.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) te
Jessi: Listen again and repeat.
Javier: te
{Pause}
Jessi: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Javier: gusta
Jessi: meaning like.
Javier: (Slow, by syllable) gusta
Jessi: Now repeat.
Javier: gusta
{Pause}

Javier: Si, me encanta la paella
Jessi: "Yes, I love paella. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Javier: (Slow) Si, me encanta la paella
{pause}
To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
B: No, no me gusta la comida española
A: Which is like saying No, I don't like Spanish food in English. Let's hear it slowly.
B: (Slowly) No, no me gusta la comida española
A: And one more time at normal speed:
B: No, no me gusta la comida española
Jessi: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
