gustar etymology From Latin gustāre, present active infinitive of gustō. pronunciation

  1. (intransitive) (followed by a or preceded by an indirect object) to be pleasing to (usually translated into English as like with exchange of the subject and object) Me gusta esta manzana - I like this apple (literally, “This apple is pleasing to me”)

This causes confusion for some English speakers studying Spanish, because the subject and object of gustar are seemingly reversed from those of to like. That is, the subject of gustar is the thing that pleases and the (indirect) object is the person who is pleased. A commonly used to trick is to think of gustar as literally meaning to be pleasing to.
