In this lesson we will learn to use verb “to like” as an auxiliary verb. We will learn to make sentences like “I like to play Cricket” or “We like to travel” in Hindi.
Let us first see what is an auxiliary verb with this example.
Consider a sentence : “I like to drive”
There are two verbs
- To drive (main verb)
- To like (auxiliary verb)
The role of auxiliary verb is to support the main verb.
“To like” as such translates to “पसंद होना (pasand honaa)” in Hindi.
When it is used with another verb , it takes the form as “पसंद है (pasand hai)” . The main verb in the sentence stay in its root form.
