Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody! I’m Katya from RussianPod101.com.
Do you know how to say “I love you” in Russian? 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.
Я люблю тебя.
[slowly] Я люблю тебя.
“I love you.”
This phrase is direct. You should use it only when confessing your love.
If you want to be less direct, you can use this phrase.
Ты так много значишь для меня.
[slowly] Ты так много значишь для меня.
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.
Слова не могут описать мою любовь к тебе.
[slowly] Слова не могут описать мою любовь к тебе.
It means "Words can't describe my love for you."
Now you know 3 different ways to say "I love you" in Russian! And here's one more. What if you want to spend Valentine's Day with someone special? In that case, say this phrase.
Будешь ли ты моим Валентином?
"Will you be my Valentine?"
[slowly] Будешь ли ты моим Валентином?
Use this to mean "Will you be my Valentine?"
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we've learned. Listen to the expression and repeat after me.
“I love you."
Я люблю тебя.

Did you know that on Valentine's Day, it's common to give your love valentines, or in Russian, валентинки (valentinki)? These are small, heart-shaped cards that are typically red or pink. Traditionally, valentines are unsigned because it's thought that the heart will point out the sender of the love note. People in love also give each other various small gifts – chocolates, a stuffed toy, or even jewelry.
You just learned how to say “I love you” in three different ways in Russian and one special phrase for Valentine's Day.
