The ‘false friend’ that we will be looking at today is disgustado. Be careful not to use disgusted as a translation for disgustado. Estoy disgustado means I’m upset. If you really want to say I’m disgusted, you should use the phrase estoy indignado. Compare these examples.
Me disgustó su tono.
His tone upset me.
Está disgustado porque no aprobó el examen.
He’s upset because he failed the exam.
Estaba indignado con su comportamiento.
.I was disgusted at his behavior.
