II vtr (degustar, probar) to taste
Gustar se traduce por to like: Me gusta esta música. I like this music. Sin embargo, recuerda que en español el sujeto del verbo gustar es lo que nos gusta (esta música), mientras que en inglés el sujeto del verbo to like es I.
Si quieres añadir un verbo como complemento del verbo to like (me gusta nadar), debes emplear el gerundio, que siempre sugiere algo placentero: I like swimming. Pero si más que gustarte simplemente te parece una buena idea o lo haces por tu propio bien puedes usar el infinitivo: I like to go to the dentist twice a year. Me gusta ir al dentista dos veces al año. Sería muy difícil que alguien dijera I like going to the dentist, porque significaría que disfruta haciéndolo.
En el modo condicional (I would like) sólo se puede usar el infinitivo: I would like to go out tonight. Me gustaría salir esta noche.
