This is why we bring to your knowledge how to say “I Love You” in French, and to say “I love you” in French can be very direct or eloquent. Here below are the many phrases you could use.



You first need to know which verb you wish to use, in French you can use: “aimer” (to love), “desirer” (to desire), or “adorer” (to adore).  Where “Aimer” reassembles as the strongest of them all in emotion and you will not use this one lightly.


One of the basic things you have to know about the different ways to express your beloved one to know that you love them is to learn how to use the “Tu” when addressing to another person. “tu” is used for people you well know. If you use the phrase “Je T’aime” the “tu” becomes contracted to a single “t” because of the vowel. The phrase will literally translate into “I LoveYou.” But if you seek for a formal event, you might want to use the phrase “Je vous aime.”


Pronunciation of some basic phrases

Je t’adore (I adore you) pronounced as: Zuh ta door.

Je t’aime (I love you) pronounced as: Zuh tem.

Je te desire (I want you) pronounced as: Zuh tuh duzai uh.

J’ai envien de toi (I want you) pronounced as: Zay oh vee du twah.



We highly recommend you to practice all of this before engaging or encountering before someone. If you say to a person that you love them could result exciting of terrifying, but when you do it in French it makes it even more romantic.

“e” (at the “je”) will be pronounced like the “oo” in the word good.

“J” (in “je”) will be pronounced like the “g” in mirage.

“T’aime” will be pronounced like the rhyme in TEM at THEM.



Make it epic.

“I Love You” will sound better by adding something extra. Add your special touch with:

For a woman: you may add “Ma Cherie” pronounced as ma she ree, just after you use the phrase “Je t’aime, toi” which creates some emphasis telling that you love them and them only. For a man “mon cheri” pronounced as: mon shay ree.

Also “mon amour” which means (my love) pronounced as:  moh n ah mohr.

“Ma belle” who means (my love) pronounced as:  mah bell.
