Grammar Point: "I like" = me gusta(n)

To say you like something, use the object pronoun "me" followed by a form of the verb gustar. Here's the important thing: the verb form is based on the thing you like.
 
For example, Me gustan los perros ("I like dogs"). The plural gustan is used since the thing you like is plural (thing of it as "the dogs are pleasing to me". Other verbs that work this way are encantar ("to be thrilled with") and molestar ("to be bothered"). You can find more information about these verbs here.
