If love isn’t quite in the air but you’d like it to be this Valentine’s Day, we’ve gathered some (hopefully) effective and definitely entertaining pick-up lines for you to employ on your quest for romance. From our language Tutors to cheeky staff members, contributions to this list poured in from Rosetta Stone employees—undeniable lovers . . . of language, that is.
You may be wondering why we’ve offered two lines for each language. Well, as with language learning, we want our readers and language learners to have all the success they can possibly have! (In other words, if the first line bombs, try the second.)
Here are 12 pick-up lines in 6 languages:
