Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody!
Do you know how to say 'I love you' in Italian? 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.
Ti amo.
[slowly] Ti 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.
Sei così importante per me.
[slowly] Sei così importante per me.
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.
Le parole non possono descrivere il mio amore per te.
[slowly] Le parole non possono descrivere il mio amore per te.
It means "Words cannot describe my love for you."
Now you know three different ways to say 'I love you' in Italian! And here's one more. What if you want to spend Valentine's Day with someone special? In that case, you can say...
Vuoi essere il mio Valentino?
[slowly] Vuoi essere il mio Valentino?
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.
