Whether you usually mark Valentine’s Day by cutting out homemade valentines with your kids, presenting a heart-shaped box of candy to your beloved or cooking a special family meal, why not use the occasion this year to express your love in a whole new way? Say it in another language and spark a love of languages and learning in your kids.
Here’s how to say “I love you” in seven languages:
German: Ich liebe dich
Russian (transliterated): Yah tebyah loobloo
Spanish: Te quiero or (romantically) Te amo
French: Je t’aime
Hebrew (transliterated): Ani ohev otach (to a woman or girl) or Ani ohevet otchah (to a man or boy)
Arabic (transliterated): Ana behibek (to a girl or woman) or Ana behibak (to a boy or man)
Italian: Ti voglio bene or (romantically) Ti amo
What better way to say “I love you”? Of course, a shiny red box of bonbons is nice too!
