Gern x Mögen
Hey there, can someone explain me what's the difference between "gern" and "mögen"? When does one use one and the other?
mögen means like
gerne can have different meanings eg:
willingly, gladly, with pleasure etc. like is only one of the possible meanings.
you can also use gerne to put a stronger emphasis on some words
eg :mögen or wollen. etc.
ich mag das - i like that
ich mag das gerne - i really like it
ich mag das sehr gerne- i really like it very much
ich will das- i want that
ich will das gerne- i really want it
ich will das sehr gerne- i really want it very much
we also use gerne as a respond when someone says danke (thanks) either just gerne or gern geschehen.
