  22. Hey Colin,

    So sweet!!!! Belated Happy Valentine’s day :D!
    Now, allow me to make a few corrections: in European Portuguese (modern) we say “amo-te”, whereas in Brazilian and Africa Portuguese we say “amo você and eu te amo” respectively.
    In Swahili they say “ninakupenda or nakupenda” since “ku” is the Direct Object you!

    Thank you for sharing this with us *bowing*!

    Cheers
