The Negative Form

The negative form in Spanish is quite straightforward. You can flip between a positive and negative version of the sentence by simply adding a ‘no’ as follows:
English: I like cheese.
Español: Me gusta el queso.
English: I don’t like cheese.
Español: No me gusta el queso.
Moreover, if someone asks you a question, and your response is negative you’ll need to use the word ‘no’ twice. The first time to answer the question, and the second time to negate the verb. This is because the Spanish language doesn’t have an equivalent of ‘don’t’. So, for example:
English: Do you like cheese?
Español: ¿Te gusta el queso?
English: No, I don’t like cheese.
Español: No, no me gusta el queso.
