Usa-se "wish" para expressar desejo com poucas chances de se realizar. (= subjuntivo)
Eu gostaria que ela pensasse em mim.
• I wish she thought about/of me. (coloquial)
• I wish she would think about/of me. (certo)
A tradução alternativa no indicativo:
• I would like her to think about/of me.
Although somewhat stilted and formal, "I would like that she thought about me" should be accepted. Just about all of these subjunctive lessons here on Dl are a complete mess when it comes to acceptable translations. It makes it very difficult to get through the levels because you basically just have to memorize what it wants through trial and error and regurgitate it back. Very frustrating.
"Would like" is followed by an infinitive clause, not a "that-clause".
I would like + pronoun + infinitive clause.
I would like her to think of me.
So why is this the only time where "gostaria" means wish and "would like" is unacceptable when you have two other sentences in the same lesson where it's the opposite?
"Eu gostaria que você pensasse no seu caso." "Eu gostaria que ele passasse mais tempo na orquestra."
I'm not learning from this.
Is there any translation possibility like "I would like if she thought about me"?
Sorry, I am not an English native speaker.
In the previous sentence (practice) I got something like "que ela" where I used the exact "that" translation and it was suggested by Duolingo to use "if she..." as an alternative solution.
Sorry, I do not have the previous sentence marked down.
Bravo. Duo needs to be spending more on editing by native speakers of the various languages of instruction, not just speakers of the target language with good skills in the language of instruction. Wouldn't take all that much work. -- After "would like ..", either use an infinitive construction to express the object ("I would like them to hire more editors") or, if you choose a that-clause or if-clause, then put an "it" before it as a placeholding object ("I would like it_if they hired more editors", "I like it_that they hired more editors").
