Mini Lesson 5 - J'aime

Focus: Like something, adjectives and where to place them.


Like somebody

Aimer both means “like” and “love”. That’s why there are two ways to use it.
1) Aimer bien is used when it seems relevant to make the distinction with love, so most of time for people.
– J’aime bien Paul. I like Paul.

2) Aimer when used alone means love.
– J’aime Paul. I love Paul.

Like something

For things, the two forms are interchangeable but aimer, alone, can only be stronger. But for “love”, we will prefer to use the verb adorer.
– J’aime bien le chocolat. I like chocolate.
– J’aime le chocolat. I like chocolate.
– I love chocolate. I love chocolate.
