You are not wrong, but with modifications:
The "t'aime" used here is actually a contraction of "te" not "tu" as in "tu aime."
Je t'aime = I love you
Je t'aime bien = I like you
Je vous aime = I like you (all) [You can't love someone emotionally, formally]
With respect to the characters mentioned by "antlane" such as Picasso, Shakespeare etc, I suspect that it is their work that is loved, rather than an actual emotion loving relationship with them, in which case "adorer" better serves this purpose:
J'adore Shakespeare = I love Shakespeare
J'adore Picasso = I love Picasso
"Je vous aime" could also mean "I love you all."
, may be in reference to your family, parents, siblings, children. People who are close to you.
With your classmates, colleagues at work, electorate, it most probably equates with the previously stated "I like you (all)."
I am glad you pointed this out, both the male and the female voice pronounce it [ploo] and not [ploos]. I looked into it and am now pronouncing it correctly! I wish Duolingo could at least put a note somewhere describing the pronunciation rule in this case. If I went by the way it is pronounced here, I would think it means "Every day I love you LESS.", which would sort of be the opposite of what I would want to say.
Up to I know, if you want to tell someone in French that you like/appreciate/cheriss him, but you don't LOVE him, you should avoid to say merely "je t'aime". Instead, you can say "je t'aime BEAUCOUP". This way, the other knows that he is dear to you... But not your LOVE.
Je t'aime means I love you Je t'aime bien means I like you. The "bien" designifies the word aimer from "to love" down to "to like." Itd be like saying, "I love you okay," AKA I like you. Hope that helps! Je vous aime bien means I like you Je vous aime (because vous is informal, and you wouldn't say you love someone you don't know well enough to use the tu form)
That's because "every day" and "everyday" mean different things.
"Everyday" means a regular occurrence, something that's normal/average/not special. So, for example, my sneakers are my everyday shoes; I wear then regularly, but not necessarily every single day.
"Every day" refers to something you do every single day of the week. For example, I brush my teeth every day (Monday through Sunday without missing a day).
FYI, the same theory goes for "login" vs "log in", "workout" vs "work out" and "anytime" vs "any time" (and a lot of other terms). They're not interchangeable.
There are a surprising number of native speakers who don't know the difference, and I feel for second language English speakers who aren't taught this correctly. Hope the above explanation helps you.
Why did I not get it right when I put "Every day I like you more"? Aimer is to like/to love???
Hi fellow Aussie : ) There are some explanations above re aimer vs aimer bien, but just popping up to say i was having the same problem. We were taught j'aime for "i like" and j'adore for "i love" at school, with no delineation between people, animals and objects. Apparently, the textbooks were wrong D:
