What about with different reflexive pronouns?

Hola 

If you wanted to say we like to run, would you still use 'gusta'? I.e. Nos gusta correr? and the same with Se gusta correr and Os gusta correr? 

Gracias :)

Take care with the pronouns used for gustar - it's not se gusta -  it is le gusta correr [he/she] and les gusta correr [they, you formal]

See lesson - Using gustar to say you like something (he likes, she likes, we like, you like, they like)

There is no reflexive "gustarse", and verbs like gustar and reflexives are completely different things.

Hola Em

When you are saying that someone likes something, the pronouns are the indirect object pronouns: me, te, le, nos, os, les 

It's very easy to get confused with se here, which is the reflexive pronoun. 

Me gusta correr, Te gusta correr, Le gusta correr, Nos gusta correr, Os gusta correr, Les gusta correr.

Thanks everyone, that makes more sense now!
