When it comes to "say", I mean you can articulate in a speaking voice, exclusive of the words that you can't utter but copy straight from online and post here.
For me, only in four languages.
I can not only say but also read and write it in Chinese which is my mother tongue. In Chinese traditions, love is something to which actions speak louder than words, hence we express it in a deep and implicit way, based on which I'm likely to find myself a good excuse for why I seldom tell the ones I love , "我爱你". Great shame in fact.
2. I love you.
In my first foreign language that I can speak, read and write. I hadn't known about it before I learnt English though.
3. я люблю тебя.
I learnt it from my friend Cathy's sister who worked as a Russian translator. Well, I'm only able to utter it and other few greetings, but do not know how to read or write them.
4. Te amo.
I have forgotten from whom or where I learnt it. Perhaps from a film in which a girl often meets a boy on the subway, she soon finds that the boy loves her and gradually she realizes that she loves him as well, but he has never told her. In the end she decides to ask him, when he listens to her, he says nothing but smiles to her. She gets off, turns around and sees the boy writing "Te amo" with fingers on the glass door. The words were soaked into my mind from then on.
I have no idea why I don't know how to say it in Japanese which is my second foreign language. I remember few Japanese words actually. I should have known how to say it in Urdu as I know a couple of Urdu words, but no, I don't. As for in a few Kazakh or Uighur words I know, it's not covered.
