There are few expressions that are so universal they transcend boundaries, borders, and nationalities - but the sentiment used to express love from one person to another is definitely one of them.

'I Love You' In Spanish
In Spanish, both the phrases te amo and te quiero can mean 'I love you'. Generally, te quiero is considered less 'passionate' and, although it does function as a way of expressing amorous feelings to a lover, it can also be appropriately used to express love for a friend, family member or even a pet!

'I Love You' In Italian
Ti amo is the Italian equivalent, and is the title of quite a few soppy romantic love ballads.

'I Love You' In German
In German, Ich liebe dich is the correct translation, although there are various German dialects that have their own variant, for example a 'Hessisch' or Hessian of west-central Germany might say Isch habb disch libb.

'I Love You' In French
France is often known as the country of l'amour or 'love', which is why the country features in most lists for popular honeymoon destinations. To tell someone you love them in French you could use the common expressions Je t'aime (I love you) or Je t'adore (I adore you).

'I Love You' In Greek
The Greek phrase for 'I love you' is written Σ'αγαπώ. The pronunciation of which is something like s'agapo. You can also use Σε λατρεύω, which means 'I adore you'.

Why Stop There?
Now that you've learned five different ways to say 'I love you', you might want to investigate other less-obvious languages. If you're dating a linguist, this may be a great way to impress them!

The Bhojpuri version, that you may hear in North-Central and Eastern India is written हम तोसे प्यार करीला and, if you're struggling to read that, is pronounced ham tose pyār karil. Alternatively the Efik translation, which you'll most likely hear in South-eastern Nigeria, is Mmema fi. Finally, if you're intending to melt the heart of an Inuit residing in the Northern-most parts of Canada, you could use the phrase ᓇᒡᓕᒋᕙᒋᑦ which is pronounced Nagligivagit.

Very cool. You learn something new every day. But how on earth were you able to type those Greek letters? Very cool. Also, FYI Jschooler1, Te amo is typically something you would say to someone you are in love with, girl/boyfriend etc., whereas te quiero is something you would say to a dear friend or family member. They both mean I love you. :o)
