What's your favorite language to say "I love you"

Hello! I found a video called, "I love you in more than 100 languages" and I thought I'd share it with you! The video is pretty long because there are a lot of languages to cover but I did find another video that is shorter. Here are the links:

(Long version) - https://youtu.be/EskC5-FzXhA

(Short version) - https://youtu.be/GX3CkSY33z0

Once you are done watching one of the videos, tell me which language is your favorite way of saying: I love you!

My personal favorites are-

  1. Sign language! <3
  2. Patois: Mi luv yuh
  3. Upper Sorbian: Ja će lubuju
  4. Chinese: 我爱你
  5. Romanian: Te iubesc
  6. Finnish: Minä rakastan sinua
  7. English: I love you
  8. Greek: Σ 'αγαπώ
  9. Kikuyu: Ningwendete
  10. El Silbo! :D

Thank you so much, I hope you guys have fun telling your favorites!

I love to say, "I love you" in German: Ich liebe dich!

I also like how Esperanto sounds especially if you add a German accent: Mi amas vin! Sounds pretty cool...

This may be biased because I'm learning Swahili, but I love you in Kiswahili is Ninakupenda. XD

I just love how cool it sounds.

I am to say "I love you", then I would be really stepping on my own feet, my words still on the tip of my tongue and really afraid and stumbling upon my words....He he... If I am to say "I love you" then it will be in English.....

I think that all the languages in the world have a beautiful way of saying I love you! Thank you for sharing this, I really loved watching those videos!! <3<3<3

My favorite would be Japanese: 愛してる (ai shiteru) or 愛しています (ai shite imasu). I really love the way it sounds, and I think it's interesting because it's a really, really strong way to say you love someone (I've once heard that it kinda sounds like something someone would say on their deathbed), which isn't really something featured in English.

I personally think that so long as it's sincere, it doesn't matter what language you're using. Love is a language in it's own, that can be understood by only two people. But I personally like the French, "Je t'aime." Some thing about the t apostrophe then love.

"Te amo" sounds so dramatic and intense to me, probably from all the mexican telenovelas I've watched all my life haha. Spanish is my native language, and I think "I love you" it's one of those times when this quote is spot on:

ASL for sure. It just feels sincere and from the heart. Then English, because I've said it in English the most. I also like French because it sounds soft and cosy.
