In this episode, we’re focusing on a phrase that’s as beautiful as it is complex: how to say I love in French.
This topic was inspired by a conversation with one of my students who frequently used the phrase “je l’aime.”
It made me realize that while “aimer” is one of the first verbs we learn, its correct usage is often misunderstood.
In This Episode, You Will Discover:

The verb “aimer” is a cornerstone in French language learning, but it’s not just about saying “I love you.”
The context in which it’s used can dramatically change its meaning. For instance, saying “J’aime le chocolat” is quite different from “J’aime ma mère.”
In this episode, we’ll dissect these nuances, ensuring that next time you express your feelings in French, you do so with the right emotional tone.
Moreover, we’ll dive into cultural aspects of expressing love and affection in French.
