    Default Need help in translating two sentences from english to spanish. Greatly appreciated

    Hello everyone, I'm new here and I need help on a few sentences from a letter. This letter is supposed to be written for my girlfriend (novia). I'm supposed to remind her that my parents are going to meet her. Anyways, the two sentences are:

    I hope they like you. (they = my parents)
    Espero que ellos te gustan.


    I'm not worried about the first meeting between you and my parents because I know that my parents will like you.
    No estoy preocupado del primer encuentro entre mis padres y t[FONT='Times New Roman','serif'] porque s[FONT='Times New Roman','serif'] que mis padres van a gustarte.[/font][/font]
    [FONT='Times New Roman','serif'][/font]
    [FONT='Times New Roman','serif']I know these two translations are wrong but if someone could help me fix them I would truly appreciate it. Thanks[/font]

    Una opción podría ser:

    I hope they like you. (they = my parents)

    Espero que te caigan bien.

    I'm not worried about the first meeting between you and my parents because I know that my parents will like you.
    No me preocupa el primer encuentro entre mis padres y tú porque sé que les vas a caer bien.

    Saludos!

    I hope they like you. (they = my parents)
    Espero que ellos te gustan means 'I hope you like them'.

    The correct translation would be: 'espero que tú les gustes (a ellos)'.


    I'm not worried about the first meeting between you and my parents because I know that my parents will like you.
    No estoy preocupado del primer encuentro entre mis padres y tú porque sé que mis padres van a gustarte.
    The correct translation would be: 'No estoy preocupado del primer encuentro entre mis padres y tú porque sé que les vas a gustar a mis padres'.

    El porque va todo junto, solo va separado en las formas interrogativas.

    No me preocupa nuestro primer encuentro con mis padres porque estoy seguro DE que les vas a caer bien.

    Es una estructura que se usa + DE, al igual que por ejemplo "no tengo idea DE qu decirle"
