If you want to say that you like something in German, you have several choices. You can use ‘mögen’, verb + ‘gern(e)’, finden + ‘gut’ or ‘gefallen’.
Mögen gets conjugated and used like a modal verb, except you should use is without a second verb.
How do you conjugate it?
How do you use it?
If you want to say that you like doing something you just add the word gern or gerne (it doesn’t matter which one) to whatever action you like doing.
Additional words you can use:
Of course, you might not like doing things. Then add these words to ‘gern’:
Gefallen goes with the item you like and you only need two forms: gefällt, if it’s one item & gefallen, if it’s more.
To say that you like something, you can also use the verb finden plus a verb, or a noun in the accusative plus ‘gut’, ‘sehr gut’, nicht gut’, etc …
A reminder how to conjugate finden:
Instead of gut, you can also use super, toll, schlecht, … any adjective that would descrive how you like something.
So, to recap:
Ich mag das! I like it (I hope so ☺)
