Today’s Word: love

☆  love  愛する


In English, I think we tend to use the word “love” when most other cultures would probably just use “like”. Do you agree? For example, it’s really common to say something like “I love travelling.” or “I love learning about new cultures.” In Japanese, you’d be more like to use the verb, “like”, is that right?

In English, if you love something or love doing something, then generally you are more passionate about that thing than you would be if you just said that you like it or like doing it. You could definitely say that someone who loves travelling enjoys it a lot more than someone who likes travelling. So, don’t be afraid to use “love” when you are talking about something in English, as it is completely acceptable to use love rather than like.
