aime vs adore
When is it appropriate to use one word over the other?
"Aimer" means to like something, while "adorer" means to love something. However, if you're talking about loving a person, you would use "aimer" instead of "adorer".
J'aime le lit. (I like the bed.) J'adore les oranges. (I love oranges.) Je t'aime. (I love you.)
Hope this helps!
Aimer is used for both like and love. example J'aime le vin - I like wine or J'aime ma mère -I love my mother Aimer bien is used for like or like a lot. J'aime bien le café- I like coffee Adorer is love, love a lot, or adore in the same sense as the verb adore in English. Je t'adore. I love you. In the past I have been taken to task from natives when using adore with an object but that may have been the people I knew.
