How can you tell the difference between love and like in the word "aime"

February 7, 2013


you love people and like other things.J'aime une fille is i love a girl and J'aime des fries is I like fries.Thats what I have understood.

The difference is in the degree of intensity.

  • je l'aime -> I love it/him/her
  • je l'aime bien -> I like her
  • je l'aime beaucoup -> I like it a lot
  • j'adore les fraises -> I love stawberries

Any explanation how j'aime tu tiens into je t'aime ?

March 9, 2015


"tu" is exclusively used as a single subject.

In its direct object form, it becomes "te" (or t' in front of a word starting with a vowel sound) and it moves in front of the verb.

Why not "food"?

April 2, 2016


A meal is a combination of various prepared dishes = le repas

Food is anything edible = la nourriture

Why can't "love" be used in place of "like"?

Thank you!

February 11, 2017


I love this meal = j'adore ce repas.

I like/enjoy this meal = j'aime (bien) ce repas.

This says love too, and it said it was wrong. They should just put like for that sentence

August 4, 2017


Why wasn't "love" an acceptable translation? D:

I don't understand because you can love the meal and you can like the meal, how are you meant to tell the difference??

December 1, 2016


I love the meal = j'adore le repas

I like the meal = j'aime (bien) le repas

December 1, 2016


i didnt mean to but i wrote ''i look like this meal''

December 18, 2017


And george, i think its because 'food' can sometimes be a singular, but duo is talking about a plural idk

why ce and not cet?

January 20, 2015


I think you use cet when the following word starts or sounds like it starts with a vowel.

"Cet" is a demonstrative adjective used before masculine nouns that begin with a vowel or vowel sound.

How can you hear the difference between "j'aime ce repas" and "j'aime sa repas"? Couldn't I be saying " I like your meal"? Or is my grammar wrong?

April 7, 2015


sa repas is not an option, since "un repas" is masculine, so you would get "son repas".

April 7, 2015


Repas. Meal, but not dish? Or?

November 9, 2015


dish = un plat, either the container (large plate or bowl) or the content.

Why is "I like this food" not accepted?

November 25, 2015


"la nourriture/food" is the generic word for anything edible. A meal is "a meal/un repas", ie a specific combination of various foods.

Whats the difference between "les" & "le" and plurals such as: "Fille" & Filles" it seems to sound similar.

September 10, 2016


Plural words ending in -s have the same pronunciation as the singular.

However, you can know that a noun is plural by focusing on its determiner: articles, possessives, demonstratives are all different from singular to plural.

  • LA fille vs LES filles: LAH vs LAY

Difference between this, these, those and that?

April 24, 2017


When the words are used as determiners:

  • "this" shows something singular close to you and "that" something singular further away from you - in time or space
  • "these" is the plural of "this" and "those" is the plural of "that".

How can I hear the difference between repa and repas?

June 10, 2017


There is none, "un repas, des repas" is the correct spelling.

June 12, 2017


I learned that" j'aime bien " is how you distinguish like from love. I think of it as there being a degree of like but not love.

September 3, 2017


aimer means to like or to love so I like (love) this meal should be accepted

March 18, 2018


J'aime ce repas = I like/enjoy/am enjoying this meal

J'aime bien ce repas = I like/enjoy/am enjoying this meal

J'adore ce repas = I love this meal.

March 18, 2018


The verb "aimer" means to like or to love. We do not know the intensity with which it is said. So, there is no real difference.
