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:

(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-
- Sign language! <3
- Patois: Mi luv yuh
- Upper Sorbian: Ja će lubuju
- Chinese: 我爱你
- Romanian: Te iubesc
- Finnish: Minä rakastan sinua
- English: I love you
- Greek: Σ 'αγαπώ
- Kikuyu: Ningwendete
- 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...
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.
"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:
"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart." Nelson Mandela
