    Do NOT learn the verb "gustar" as the verb "to like" for you will understand it better if you learn it as the verb "to be pleasing.....to someone." Now you will understand why it is USUALLY used 3rd person singular (one thing IS pleasing to someone) or 3rd person plural (2 or more things ARE pleasing to someone.) This is not to say it is never used in the "yo, tú, etc. forms" for there is a popular song entitled: "Me gustas tú" which literally says "you are pleasing to me" but FREELY translated as "I like you."

    Now look at the correct answers:
    1. Lucía y Augusto, ¿Les gustan los huevos? = Are the eggs pleasing to you (a ustedes, unless your book uses "vosotros/vosotras" and then it would be ¿Os gustan...? FREELY translated "Do you both like eggs?"

    2. NEVER "te" or the familiar if you call someone Mr., Mrs., Ms. etc. ONLY if you are on a first-name basis with someone. So you must be formal: Señora Menchero, ¿Le gusta el café? (a Usted, is either understood or expressed)
    *Please learn to put accent marks, etc. where they are necessary = ñ, é, etc. To do that I need to know if 1) you have a PC or a Mac and 2) if you have Windows or not.

    3. Again, it will be "les" for "a ustedes" UNLESS your textbook uses "vosotros/vosotras" and then it is "Os."
    Gregorio y Luz, ¿Les gustan las uvas? (Are the grapes pleasing to you both?)

    Now, how on earth did you get #3 but miss #1? (Lucky guess?) Feel free to ask any questions if there is still something you do not understand.

    Gracias Sra! Not a lucky guess on number 3; it was a typo on #1, I forgot to type "n", so I actually got it correct. :)

    1.) PC
    2.) Yes, I have windows 7.

    If this chart doesn't work for you, let me know because I have other charts as well:

    Microsoft Word for Windows




    The default keystrokes for accented characters are as follows:
    Symbols joined by a + need to be held down at the same time;
    Symbols separated by a coma need to be hit in sequence, one after the other.

    á


    Ctrl + ' , A

    é


    Ctrl + ' , E

    í


    Ctrl + ' , I

    ó


    Ctrl + ' , O

    ú


    Ctrl + ' , U

    É


    Ctrl + ' , Shift + E

    ñ


    Ctrl + Shift + ~, N

    Ñ


    Ctrl + Shift + ~, Shift + N

    ¿


    Alt + Ctrl + Shift + ?

    ¡


    Alt + Ctrl + Shift + !

    ü


    Ctrl + Shift + : , U


    If you want to change the defaults and use other keystrokes to access accent marks, follow these instructions. You will only need to do this once and the computer you're working on will remember the keystrokes you've set up. However, if you move to a different machine, you'll probably have to go through this set-up process again.

    1. Go to the "Insert" menu and choose "Symbol"
    2. Get "Normal text" and then highlight the character you want
    3. Click on "Shortcut Key"
    4. Type in the keystrokes you want for that character

    (such as "alt + e" for "é")

    5. Repeat this process for each special character you need

    ¡Buena suerte!

    Just in case it isn't the one above, here's another:

    Step 1
Make sure your number lock key is on. Most computers have a little light that lights up to signify the num. lock is on.
    Step 2
While the number lock key is on, hold down the Alt. key and type the code that follows the letter or punctuation you need.
    Step 3
For capital letters:

Ã - 0195
Ñ - 0209
Õ - 0213

Á - 0193
É - 0201
Í - 0205
Ó - 0211
Ú - 0218

Ü - 154
    Step 4
For lower case letters:

ã - 0227
ñ - 0241
õ - 0245

á - 160
é - 130

í - 161
ó - 162
ú - 163

ü - 129
    Step 5
For punctuation, follow the same steps.

¿ - 168

¡ - 173
    Step 6
After you have typed the necessary code release the Alt. key. The letter or punctuation will show on the screen.
