But if the person you want to declare your affection to is your grandmother or niece or best friend, then you would say te quiero or yo te quiero. Te quiero is also OK to say to a lover, by the way, but te amo is typically not appropriate to say to your child. While this may not be the case in every Spanish culture, anyone just starting to learn Spanish would do well to stick to this rule. Better safe than sorry!

Te quiero (pronounced teh kyeh-roh) comes from the verb querer, which is the infinitive form and means to want.  Te means you. The subject pronoun yo may or may not be used as you prefer because that information is included in the conjugation of the word itself. Quiero is the first person indicative of the verb querer.Take My Heart

In Spanish, as in many other languages, it is not necessary to use the subject pronoun, in this case, the word I, because this information is indicated by the way the verb is conjugated. In this case the verb is amar, which is the infinitive form and means to love. The conjugation amo tells you that it is the first person pronoun.

While it is common not to use pronouns in conversation, it is perfectly correct and normal to include them when you speak Spanish, as well. The choice is yours.

How do you say I love you in Spanish including the subject pronoun? Yo te amo.

Te AmoNote that te amo or Yo te amo is a Spanish phrase typically reserved for use only with your lover.
