How do you say I love you in Spanish?

 

Having the ability to express love is one of the most important functions of a language. In this short post we will take a look at how do you say I love you in Spanish and some other phrases that may be useful to express your feelings for someone special.

 

To say I love you in Spanish, you can say:

Te quiero.

 

You may also say:

Te amo.

 

Learn how to pronounce these phrases here: 

httpv://youtu.be/yJRarr5UiMs

 

 

It is important to mention that, although there are two ways of saying I love you in Spanish (te quiero and te amo), they may be used in different contexts.

 

For example,

In Mexico and in most of Latin America saying “te quiero” means I love you,

 

“Te quiero” may be used with a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife; and it may also be used to express fraternal love for a brother, sister, cousin or a friend.

 

So, in English there is only one verb to say I love you (to love), but in Spanish we have 2 (querer and amar).

 

Although “te quiero” can be used to express love for a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife as well as friends and family,

 

“Te amo” may only be used to express romantic feelings. For example, for a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife. Generally, you wouldn’t use “Te amo” with a brother, a sister, or friends (however, there are exceptions and some people may use them that way as well, occasionally to express intense fraternal love).

 

“Te amo” is more of a romantic nature, and “te quiero” (although it means I love you) may be used in both romantic and fraternal contexts ( fraternal, as in a context of family or friends).

 

 

A few other phrases you can use to express your love for somebody are (in a romantic context):

 

I love you very much.

Te quiero mucho.

 

You are a very special person for me.

Eres una persona muy especial para mí.

 

You are the most important person in my life.

Eres la persona más importante en mi vida.

 

I don’t know what I would have done if I had never met you.

No sé que habría hecho si no te hubiera conocido.

 

I enjoy being with you.

Disfruto estar contigo.

 

I love spending time with you.

Me encanta pasar tiempo contigo.

How to say shut up in Spanish?

 

Although being polite generally works better, there are times when people simply don’t know when to stop talking, and knowing how to say shut up in Spanish can be a really useful.

In this short post we will take a look at how to say “shut up” in Spanish, as well as other phrases to ask people to stop talking that may be used in different contexts (depending on how rude you want to be, some of them will be less polite than others).

How do you say shut up in Spanish

 

 

If you just want to know how to say “shut up” in Spanish, you can say:

 

“Cállate”

 

 

Learn how to pronounce it here:

Now, let’s look at some other options that may be used in a more formal context (in other words, these are relatively polite ways of asking people to be quiet).

They may be used with people you just met, or people you don’t know that well. They have a formal tone.

Let’s look at a few examples:

 

Please be quiet.

Por favor guarde silencio.

 

I would really appreciate it if you remain silent.

Le agradecería mucho que guarde silencio.

 

I’m sorry to bother you, but could you please be quiet?

Disculpe la molestia, pero ¿podría guardar silencio por favor?

 

 

Learn how to pronounce these phrases here: 

httpv://youtu.be/Z9p3BhFSjqk

 

 

However, there are times when there is no room for diplomacy or good manners; and a more direct approach needs to be used.

So, let’s look at a few “not so polite” ways of asking people to be quiet (in other words, asking them to shut up).

Note, these are very direct phrases, they are not very polite and they should be used with caution only in circumstances when somebody is being a jerk.

 

Let’s look at the examples:

 

Shut up or I’ll shut you up!

¡Cállate o te callo!

 

Just shut up!

¡Sólo cállate!

 

You better shut up or this is going to get ugly!

¡Más vale que te calles o esto se va a poner feo!

 

Shut up, I don’t want to hear about it anymore!

¡Cállate, ya no quiero saber nada de esto!

 

Shut up!

¡Cállate!
