15 Feb Valentine’s Special: Popular Terms of Endearment in 5 Languages

Love knows no boundaries, and sometimes you can find yourself falling in love with someone who doesn’t speak your language well. This Valentine’s week, why not fall in love with a new language and surprise your better half with a multilingual valentine? 

  • French

Definitely one of the most romantic languages in the world, French speakers are spoilt for choice when it comes to expressing their feelings for their special someone. 

Oh mon amour! – Oh my love!

Mon chéri – My dear

Je t’aime plus que tout au monde! – I love you more than anything in the world!

Je t’aime – I love you

  • Spanish

Spanish users are very big on using terms of endearment in their speech. Some commonly used phrases include: 

mi amor – My love

corazón – Sweetheart (literally, heart)

guapo/guapa: Handsome/beautiful

  • German

While most German speakers sound serious most of the time, they do fall in love just like anyone else. Here are a few terms of endearment in German: 

Ich bin bis über beide Ohren verliebt I’m head over heels in love

Ich liebe dich – I love you

Du bist die Liebe meines LebensYou are the love of my life

  • Japanese

When using expressions of love in Japanese, being indirect is advisable. 

 愛してる Aishiteru – I love you (a serious expression that is usually reserved for couples)

好きです Suki desu – I like you (use this if you want to confess your feelings for someone)

  • Korean

안녕, 내 사랑~! (annyeong, nae sarang) – Hello, my love!

난 네 거야 (nan ne geoya) – I’m yours
