In this chapter you will learn how to express "Sentiments" (feelings) and "Emotions" (emotions) in French !
In French, as in English, you can use the verb aimer (to love) in a romantic love for someone and aimer or the verb adorer (to like) for things and actions but also so that you can distinguish beetween the romantic love and emotions. But you should be careful of the context in which you use these.
Here are a few expression to signal affection in French :
|Je t'aime||I love you||
Romantic love mostly
|Je t'aime bien mon cher||I hold you dear||Family members / really close persons|
|J'adore la pizza/ton ami||I like pizza/your friend||For friends, things and actions|
|Tu me plaît beaucoup||You / this pleases me (hard to translate phrase)||Usually if you like someone's style or when you do something for the first time|
The list below shows you possible answers for the question Comment te sens-tu ? (How do you feel?).
Hi! I'm an Italian English teacher and I offer Italian and French language and culture lessons of any kind of level, to adults and children. I... speak Italian, English, French and a little bit of German and Arabic. I prefer interactive lessons rather than formal ones, but I always decide learning objectives and materials with my students. Don't hesitate to contact me! Read more
I’m French, currently living in the Netherlands. I lived in Paris for almost twenty years, and I know very well my country (and of course... my language, French, my mother tongue). I taught French for two years in Spain, conversation class about culture essentially. In Paris, I was Spanish teacher, I have the Agregation degree which is the highest degree for teaching in France, I'm bilingual. I've participated too in several editorial projects about Spanish teaching and DELE preparation. I have a Spanish Studies Master and I'm currently doing a research about the Spanish and Sefardi Judaism. I have a French as foreign language and a Religious Studies Masters too. I enjoy sharing what I know. I’m a very eclectic person and curious about everything. To give you an idea, my interest (and sometimes hobbies) are: philosophy, spirituality and religions in general, meditation, psychology and psychoanalysis, history, geography, literature, writing (in particular creative writing, and I’m used to write everyday), art (painting, photography), sciences (vulgarisation level) and cultural matters in general. I travel a lot (as a backpacker), sometimes by foot, and the places I know well are France, the Netherlands, Italy and Serbia. One of my qualities is my capacity of adaptation, I enjoy preparing documents to help the student to acquire autonomy, but I love speaking too, and it’s the best way to learn a language. I'm waiting for your message, please when contact me, explain quickly who you are, why you want to study French and what you are looking for exactly. See you soon. Read more
