Me gusta leo valdez, Me gusta one direction,Te amo, y puedo tener una leche helado?

(I'm not certain about the ice cream part though.)

When saying "me gusta" you are saying I like. you can also say, "Me gusta mucho" I like a lot!

I think "te amo" is a pretty serious way to say "I love you" you can also say "Te Quiero".

I am not a native speaker and I don't have much experience telling anyone I love them in various degrees in Spanish. So, I hope I got this stuff right. And if not, someone will come and correct me and we'll both learn something new ^_^

Thank you :) I keep forgetting if it's just helado or not.

If you wanted to be extra polite, you could phrase it as

¿Podría pedir un helado, por favor? Could I request an ice cream, please.

That might be a bit excessive, though. :-)

¿Me podría servir un helado por favor? is somewhat a better arrangement and it is rather polite. Poner is also used, although may sound quite funny when thinking about it...

¿Sería usted tan amable de servirme un helado? is very polite and not totally unused/unheard of.

Interesting. You're a native speaker of Castellano, too, yes? Maybe the preferred form varies somewhat by region...

I definitely was taught pedir as the primary verb for "to order / request". (My education in Spanish was a blend of Castilian, Mexican, and Dominican -- different teachers in different years -- plus some travels in Spain.)

Quisiera pedir ... is a fairly common arrangement I believe. I use it too.

I do think it may vary slightly with regions and also the circumstances... It is somewhat different to ask for an ice cream in an ice cream shop or to a flight attendant, at least to me seems more of a special request on the latter.

My problem with your suggestion is just that I find the formulation funny, as in Can ask you a question? instead of may I ask you a question. :)

OK, yeah, "quisiera" in that context sounds familiar. Also, querría (conditional, "I would want").

And here's a whole article for English speakers learning Spanish on "polite requests". They also mention "me gustaría X", which is, "I would like X / it would please me to have X."

It's been over two years since I was around native speakers I could practice with... I need to travel more. :-)

To say "I love (something)", you can say "Me encanta..."
