Gustar- To be pleasing
--We use the verb gustar to talk about what we like (what pleases us.)
--Gustar is a reflexive verb. This means that it is used to talk about how a person is affected by another thing. In this case, the person you are talking about isn't the one doing the action, but the one the action affects.
--We need to use indirect object pronouns in conjunction with reflexive verbs.
Indirect Object Pronouns
Me - (to) me Nos - (to) us
Te - (to) you (informal you) Vos - (to) you guys (informal you)
Le - (to) you (formal you)/him/her Les - (to) you (formal you)/them
