Mil y una lenguas dicen “te quiero”

When ever we travel to another country I try to learn a few basic words of their language.

Nothing too taxing, just hello, please, thank you and other little words which show I’m trying to be polite.

I love you, while a very important expression, isn’t one most travellers usually have a need for.

But should you do so, Don Quijote is compiling a list – mil y una lenguas dicen “te quiero” – 1001 languages say “I love you”.

They’re up to 52 and it’s the place to go if you want to learn how to say I love you in any language from Arabic – Ana Bekhekbak (for him) and Ana Bekhekbik (for her) via  Swahili – Ninakupenda – to Vietnamese Anh yêu em (for her) / Em yêu anh (for him).

    The only words I found worth learning were:

    I will have two beers and my mate will pay!
