How to say I miss you in French ❤️
🔗STEP 1 - Switch the English sentence around:
Ex. • I miss you - you are being missed by me ➡️ Tu me manques.
• She missed him - He was being missed by her ➡️ Il lui manquait.
🔗STEP 2 – CHOOSE THE CORRECT PRONOUN
If you are using pronouns, the first one is going to be a subject pronoun: je, tu, il, elle, on, nous, vous, ils, elles.
The second one is going to be an indirect object pronoun - me, te, lui (for him and her and it), nous, vous, and leur (both of them being feminine and masculine).
📌It will never be le, la, l’ or les.
* I miss you – you are being missed by me (You = either tu or vous,, by me = me) ➡️Vous me manquez/Tu me manques.
* You miss me – I am being missed by you (I = je, by you = either te or vous➡️ Je vous manque/ Je te manque.
🖍If you are using nouns, translate the “by” with an à
ex. The tourists miss the sun = The sun is being missed by the tourists = le soleil manque aux touristes.
🔗STEP 3 – MAKE THE VERB AGREEMENT WITH THE SUBJECT – THE FIRST NOUN OR PRONOUN
Don’t say ” je vous manquez“. Make sure “manquer” agrees with the first pronoun or noun, NOT the one just before the verb… So it should be “Je vous manque.” (You miss me)
• If your verb is in the negative, the ne goes between the 2 pronouns: “je ne vous manque pas.” (You don’t miss me).
