aimer v adorer

i learned that aimer is to love a person or animal but it means like for an object and if you want to love an object you use adorer eg j'adore le chocolat - i love chocolat. j'aime le chocolat - i like chocolat. Is this wrong?

Hi Helen,

Yes, you can say -

J'aime le chocolat = I like chocolate

and even stronger -

J'adore le chocolat = I love chocolate 

It is with people that it can be tricky.

If you say -

J'aime David I love David    (and can be seen as a love declaration!)

J'aime bien David = I like David

Hope this helps!
