Mini-Test Answer: No (Beginner)

Beginner Level 初级 (chūjí)

The correct answer to this test is A.


        Wǒ ài nǐ.
Boy: 我 爱 你。
        I love you.  

       Wǒ xǐhuan nǐ, dàn shì wǒ bú ài nǐ.
Girl: 我    喜欢   你,但   是 我 不 爱 你。
       I like you, but I don’t love you.

Analysis from our Mandarin Language School:

The thing you must know here is the difference between “爱 (ài)” and “喜欢 (xǐhuan).” “喜欢 (xǐhuan)” means to be fond of somebody, especially for his or her merits. “爱 (ài)” means to love somebody totally including his or her faults.

  1. Yes, people usually use 爱 to refer to 爱情 in certain conditions. But 爱 can also mean the love between relatives and friends. My teacher from my Mandarin language school told me this.
