How French will I love you? Proper use of words


  1. 1 Decide which verb you want to use. You can use "aimer" (to love), "adorer" (to adore) or "désirer" (to wish).
    • "Aimer" is the most emotionally strong of the three verbs. Do not use it for nothing!
  2. 2 Use the form "tu". It is unlikely that you will want in an official setting to tell someone unknown that you love him!
    • "Tu" and "vous" are two forms used when referring to another person. "Tu" is used to refer to people you know well, or to children.
    • In the phrase "je t" aime, "te" is abbreviated to "t" due to the subsequent vowel. Literally, this translates as "I love you."
    • If you are willing to take a chance with someone you know only formally, use "je vous aime". Also, this phrase will come in handy if you are a fan of old-fashioned courtship and refer to the subject of your love for “you”.
  3. 3 Learn how to say key phrases:
    • Je t "aime - I love you (same tem)
    • Je t "adore - I adore you (same tador)
    • Je te désire or j "ai envie de toi - I want you (same cho desir or Jae An: Vi de Tois)
  4. 4 Practice before saying these phrases to anyone. If you are nervous, practice will be invaluable. Admitting to someone that you love him / her can be exciting or terrible. The use of the French language makes this statement more romantic. Bonne chance! (Good luck!)
    • Grind the pronunciation. French is full of sounds that are pronounced a little differently than in Russian.
      • "j" in "je" is pronounced [w], but softer than in Russian,

"e" in "je" is pronounced close to [e],

"en" in "envie" is pronounced as if you pronounce "a" in the nose: [en:],

the emphasis in words always falls on the last syllable.

I love you

The phrase “I love you” in French will sound softer and softer: “je t'aime”. This phrase is considered the most popular expression for a declaration of love, in second place, the English I love you. The phrase consists of three words: “same” - I, “those” - you and the verb “um” - I love, which includes different shades and can mean simple “like”. Therefore, in French, "I love you" will be like "you like me." This is a very tricky language in which you always need to look into the context, otherwise you can get into trouble.

Lara Fabian

Lara Fabian brought world fame to the song “I Love You” in French, especially all the fans remembered the 2002 concert, when the singer was unable to sing this song because she cried. By all accounts, it was believed that she was experiencing the death of her beloved person (husband) Gregory Lemorschal. But!

  1. Gregory was never her husband: between them was a purely professional relationship, albeit with an admixture of friendship. There was nothing intimate between them, and could not be
  2. The concert took place in 2002, and Lemorschal died in 2007, so this fact already speaks for itself.

In fact, Lara could not sing because of a banal sore throat, she had a temperature and during the concert she ran out of breath and could not sing, so the audience and the fans in love sang, causing Lara Fabian to shed tears of tenderness and appreciation (but not the longing for the deceased husband, as it was written). Millions of fans at each meeting with her chanted in French “I love you” for a long time after this incident.

Eva Polna

The fame “love me in French” on the territory of the Russian-speaking population was brought by the group “Guests from the Future” and its soloist Eva Polna. Light playful motive and uncomplicated meaning of a love song between a star and an unknown fan. Eve is often blamed for the frivolity and primitiveness of the songs, but not everyone understands the metaphorical style of her poems - hence the condemnation.

Language of love

The French language is unanimously recognized as the most sensual language in the world. The subtleties of designating feelings, emotions and sensations in such quantity are not present in any other language of the world. He was born to confess and sigh: the elegant verbs “aimer” (to love), “adorer (to adore) or“ désirer ”(to wish) are the most common, but“ aimer ”means the strongest sense in this regard, therefore it is not used for nothing, but only when it is really love, not a hobby or love.

It’s not for nothing that they say that each language has its own purpose:

  • French is designed to speak with a woman,
  • Italian - with the Lord
  • German - with enemies
  • English - to conduct diplomatic negotiations.
