Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody! I’m Olivia from CantoneseClass101.com.
Do you know how to say “I love you” in Cantonese? 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.
我愛你。
[slowly] 我愛你。
“I love you.”
If you want to be less direct, you can use this phrase.
你喺我心目中好重要。
[slowly] 你喺我心目中好重要。
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.
冇辦法用言語嚟形容我對你嘅愛。
[slowly] 冇辦法用言語嚟形容我對你嘅愛。
It means "Words can't describe my love for you."
Now you know 3 different ways to say "I love you" in Cantonese! And here's one more. What if you want to spend Valentine's Day with someone special? In that case, say this phrase.
你願意做我嘅愛人嗎?
"Will you be my love?"
[slowly] 你願意做我嘅愛人嗎?
Use this when you have someone with whom you want to spend Valentine's Day.
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we've learned. Listen to the expression and repeat after me.
“I love you."

On Valentine's Day, couples in Hong Kong often exchange gifts. It is typical for the guy in the relationship to give his girlfriend something expensive, like jewelry, or a designer handbag. The girl usually buys electronic products or clothing for her boyfriend.
