Do the terms Me "Gustaria" and "Quisiera" mean the same thing -- I would like? Perhaps they are terms used in different Latino cultures? Thank you, Mac

[quo]*Quote from * mac Do the terms Me "Gustaria" and "Quisiera" mean the same thing -- I would like? Perhaps they are terms used in different Latino cultures? Thank you, Mac[/quo] I'm no expert, but I think both "me gustaría" and "quisiera" mean "I would like." However, "me gustaría" is in the *indicative*, while "quisiera" is the imperfect *subjunctive*. I'm sure you can find lots of information about when to use the subjunctive if you search the Web. I'm not aware of any regional differences that determine the use of these terms. I think most Spanish speakers use both.
