Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody! I’m Lidia from FrenchPod101.com.
Do you know how to say “I love you” in French? In this lesson, you'll learn three different ways to say "I love you" and a special phrase for Valentine's Day.
Let’s start with the most common phrase.
Je vous aime.
[slowly] Je vous aime.
“I love you.”
If you want to be less direct, you can use this phrase.
Tu comptes tant pour moi.
[slowly] Tu comptes tant pour moi.
It means “You mean so much to me.”
Now if you want to be more romantic in expressing your love for someone, you can say this phrase.
Les mots ne peuvent pas décrire mon amour pour toi.
[slowly] Les mots ne peuvent pas décrire mon amour pour toi.
It means "Words can't describe my love for you."
Now you know 3 different ways to say "I love you" in French! And here's one more. What if you want to spend Valentine's Day with someone special? In that case, say this phrase.
Veux tu etre ma Valentine?
"Will you be my Valentine?"
[slowly] Veux tu etre ma Valentine?
If you want to ask formally, you can say Voulez-vous être mon Valentin?
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we've learned. Listen to the expression and repeat after me.
“I love you."
Je vous aime.
*beep
Je vous aime.
"You mean so much to me."
Tu comptes tant pour moi.
*beep
Tu comptes tant pour moi.
"Words can't describe my love for you."
Les mots ne peuvent pas décrire mon amour pour toi.

Les mots ne peuvent pas décrire mon amour pour toi.
"Will you be my Valentine?"
Veux tu etre ma Valentine?

Veux tu etre ma Valentine?
Well done! [pause]
Did you know that on Valentine's Day, many shops in France are decorated in red, or rouge, and pink, or rose? Couples also give each other weekends away or trips to take together. Perfume is also a very popular gift for Valentine's Day.
You just learned how to say “I love you” in three different ways in French and one special phrase for Valentine's Day.
And...
I’ll see you next time. Et à très bientôt !

Bonjour Careyotani !


Merci pour votre message !

Il faut dire "Tu comptes pour moi" ou "je suis attaché à toi".

Le premier est le plus courant !


A bientôt !

quelqu'un vous complimente mais vous n'avez pas l'air enchanté


la flirtation ne vous intéresse pas, n'est-ce pas?


Is there a fine line between flirting and expressing a sincere compliment to someone? What makes the difference -- Is it the person receiving the compliment is not interested in the person offering the compliment?


J'ai jété un coup d'oeil à l'homme, mais il n'avait pas l'air enchanté. Céline taught me that line. No, it was Angèle. Come to think of it, it was Alex.

Which is heard more often -- "Tu comptes tant à moi" or "J'accroche à toi"?
