Want to tell the person you love how you feel? Learn how to say ‘I love you’ in various languages from around the world and how to pronounce them correctly!

According to The Beatles, “All you need is love”, they weren’t wrong! When you feel loved, it gives you the drive and reassurance needed to conquer whatever life throws at you. When someone loves you and believes in your, it boosts your confidence allowing you to take on challenging tasks such as learning a language, which is why I took this photo (see above) of me standing in front of Le mur de je t’aime (literally, The Wall of “I Love You’) in Paris. This beautiful mural features the phrase ‘I Love You’ written in 250 different languages and dialects.

Love is awesome! So awesome in fact, that there’s even a day where we celebrate it – St. Valentine’s Day. St. Valentine’s Day is one of the world’s most popular holidays, celebrated by millions of people across the globe and a wonderful opportunity to watch a romantic Italian film. The true history of the holiday is shrouded in mystery, and what we know about it today is mostly legends and tales. 

According to one such legend, Valentine was a Christian priest who married young Roman soldiers against the Emperor’s orders to do so. According to another, he was persecuted for practising Christianity in pagan Rome. Valentine was beheaded on February 14 and he died as a Christian martyr.  Later, the Christian church named Valentine a saint, and February 14 became the day to commemorate the saint by celebrating love and kindness. The legend of St. Valentine may be sad, but Valentine’s Day is a beautiful holiday – so let’s celebrate it by celebrating love.

Here’s how to say ‘I love you’ in a variety of languages from all around the world, plus how to pronounce them! (Missing a language? Let me know in the comments and I’ll add it in!)
