Are there two words for "I like" in Poruguese to correspond with gusta and gustan in Spanish? I only know one: gosto? Is there a difference?

Updated 7 days ago:

I meant Portuguese.

Eu gosto de vinho....... I like wine

Eu gosto de beber ...I like to drink.

    That is the word, but it literally mean "I like", not "it is pleasing to me".

    Also it's used with "de", like "Gosto de nadar"  ("I like to swim")

    I don´t know if I understand your question but that willdepend on the subject.

    I like wine. Eu gosto de vinho.

    You(sing) like wine. Você gosta de vinho.

    He/she/it likes wine. Ele/ela gosta de vinho

    We like wine. Nós gostamos de vinho.

    You(plural) like wine. Vocês gostam de vinho.

    They like wine. Eles/elas gostam de vinho.

    Therefore in the simple present tense, you have three forms: gosto, gosta, gostamos, gostam.

      De nada. Yes, gustan for pjural nouns. Correct: there is no Portuguese equivalent of me gusta and me gustan.

    Eu gosto, perhaps.
