Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody!
Do you know how to say 'I love you' in Portuguese? 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.
Eu te amo.
[slowly] Eu te 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.
Você significa tanto para mim.
[slowly] Você significa tanto para mim.
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.
Palavras não podem descrever o meu amor por você.
[slowly] Palavras não podem descrever o meu amor por você.
It means "Words cannot describe my love for you."
Now you know three different ways to say 'I love you' in Portuguese! And here's one more. What if you want to spend Valentine's Day with someone special? In that case, you can say...
Você quer ser meu namorado?
[slowly] Você quer ser meu namorado?
It means "Would you be my Valentine?"
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we've learned. Listen to the expression and repeat after me.
"I love you."
Eu te amo.
