Updated: Jul 2

Let us show you how to say “I Love You” in Khmer and Asian Language, or maybe after reading this you want to surprise your friends and other half. How to say:


1- Burmese

“ချစ်တယ်” Chit Tae

Saying ‘I love you’ can be both scary and exciting and even more so in a new language! There are a few different ways to tell someone that you love them in Burmese.


I love you Ngar nin ko chit tae

Love you Chit tae

I love you Chit pa de

All of the above phrases mean ‘I love you’ and can be used interchangeably.


2- Chinese

“我爱你” (wǒ ài nǐ.)

The phrase "wǒ ài nǐ" (我爱你) is the most literal way to say "I love you" in Chinese. This is considered an expression of extremely strong emotion and is never used casually. Use this phrase to express a lifelong love for someone in a more formal situation or serious occasion. For example, you might say this to your new spouse at your wedding, or on an anniversary.


3- Indonesian

Aku suka kamu.

Aku cinta kamu.

Aku sayang kamu.

Usually, there are three ways that Indonesian people use when they are saying this kind of thing. The first sentence is,

Aku suka kamu.

You say this when you get a crush on someone and you want to express it to her or him. If translated in English it would be,

I have a crush on you.

The second sentence is when your love is getting bigger, and you love her or him more deeply, you can say this,

Aku cinta kamu.

If translated in English it would be,

I love you.

The third sentence is when your love grows deeper. Your love in this state is more than your love in the previous state. You can say this sentence also to your beloved one, for example, your mother, your father or someone that you really care so much even though you're not in a relationship with them. You can say it to your brother, your sister, your mother, your father, and also your loved one. The third sentence is,

Aku sayang kamu.

This is deeper than aku cinta kamu. You still translate this in English as,

I love you.


4- Japanese

”愛しています” Aishite imasu

Japanese people have several ways to say “I love you” such as aishiteru (愛してる), aishiteru yo (愛してるよ), and aishiteru wa (愛してるわ).

But nowadays, young Japanese generations prefer phrases aishite imasu (愛しています), and aishiteru yo (愛してるよ).
