Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody!
Do you know how to say 'I love you' in Spanish? In this lesson, you'll learn three different ways to say 'I love you' and a special phrase for Valentine's Day.
Let’s start with the most common phrase.
Te amo.
[slowly] Te amo.
"I love you."
This phrase is direct. You should use it only when you're confessing your love.
If you want to be less direct, you can use this phrase.
Significas mucho para mí.
[slowly] Significas mucho para mí.
It means "You mean so much to me."
Now if you want to be more romantic in expressing your love for someone, you can say this phrase.
Las palabras no pueden describir mi amor por ti.
[slowly] Las palabras no pueden describir mi amor por ti.
It means "Words cannot describe my love for you."
Now you know three different ways to say 'I love you' in Spanish! And here's one more. What if you want to spend Valentine's Day with someone special? In that case, you can say...
¿Quieres ser mi Valentín?
[slowly] ¿Quieres ser mi Valentín?
It means "Will you be my Valentine?"
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we've learned. Listen to the expression and repeat after me.
"I love you."
Te amo.

Well done! [pause] Here's a fun fact! Do you know which songs are most often dedicated to lovers on Valentine's Day in Spain?
Some of the most frequently dedicated songs by people in love on these dates are "Me enamora" by Juanes, "Juntos" by Paloma San Basilio and "Si tú no estás" by El Sueño de Morfeo.

Hola Melody,


Thank you for your question.

No, it's correct. It's not the literal translation but is its actual translation.

Muy bien! Sigamos practicando!
