Still not sure how you’re going to impress your partner this Valentine’s Day? Well, here’s a suggestion: Learn another language... and have that language be French.
According to a new survey by One Hour Translation, the majority of people think French is the most romantic language of all. If this is the case, then you definitely want to be able to coo in your partner’s ear, “Nous sommes faits l’un pour l’autre, mon amour.” Sounds way better than, “We’re meant for each other, my love,” doesn’t it?
One Hour Translation, the largest online translation agency, surveyed 1,000 people in 10 different developed countries to see what language was mostly associated with romance. It was, to no one’s surprise French, because “Ooh la, la! Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?” In other words, the French are pretty much the most romantic, so much so that co-founder and chief marketing officer of One Hour Translation suggests that marketers incorporate French phrases into their Valentine’s Day cards and products, if they want to reap some major cash.
