Feeling romantic? Learn how to tell your loved one how you feel in six different languages.

"I love you"

Feeling romantic? Learn how to say 'I love you' in Japanese, Italian, Turkish, Chinese, Bengali and Greek!


Firstly, Japanese, a language that, when spoken by a man, can sound tough and threatening (like a samurai), and when spoken by a woman, can sound cute and innocent. Here's how to say 'I love you'.

大好き Daisuki (Die-skee)
愛している Ai shiteiru (I shiteyru)

'Daisuki' is casual and laid-back, 'Ai shiteiru' is the most intimate and sincere way of telling a person you love them.


Italian has long been considered a beautiful and romantic language, so it only makes sense that you learn to express your fondness in Italian. Here it is.

Ti amo (tee amo) or Ti voglio (tee vogleeo)

How sweet! And if you want to go that step futher and say 'I love you very much'...

Ti voglio molto bene (tee vogleeo molto beh-neh)

In Spanish and Latin it's 'te amo', so you've basically learned three languages in one with that one!


Turkish is a complicated but fascinating language. Here's how to say 'I love you' in Turkish.

Seni Seviyorum (senny sevyuh-rum)

It sounds as beautiful as its meaning. Bear in mind you can only say this in a romantic way, not to friends and family.


Mandarin is the most spoken language in the world, so it only makes sense that you learn to say 'I love you' in Chinese.

我爱你 Wo ai ni (wor-i-nee)

Unlike Turkish, you can use 'wo ai ni' when speaking to pets, friends, family, etc., making it a useful phrase. If you have any Chinese friends, try saying it to them.
In Chinese there are four different tones, so click here for more information on the correct pronunciation.


'I love you' in Bengali is considerably long, but the writing system is so pretty you just can't ignore it.

আমি তোমাকে ভালোবাস ami tomake bhalobashi (amee tomahkey baloo-bashee)

This is the informal way to say 'I love you' in Bengali.


Greece is a beautiful country with plenty of sunshine and rich history. You never know when you might need to say 'I love you' in Greek.

Σ 'αγαπώ S'Agapo (saga po)

So there you have it - Daisuki/Ai shiteiru, ti amo, seni seviyorum, wo ai ni, ami tomake bhalobashi, s'Agapo, I love you!
