Q: Do the 5LL apply to other ethnic groups or just Americans?
A: I discovered the 5 Love Languages in middle America in my counseling office. I was very surprised when the spanish publisher asked if they could publish the book in Spanish. I said, “I don’t know if this works in Spanish.” But the publisher said, “We’ve read it. It works in Spanish.” So, they published The 5 Love Languages and it became their best seller. Then came the German and French editions and has now been translated into 49 language all over the world. Apparently, the Love Languages do speak in different cultures. I’m sure they have some adaptations but essentially these are the fundamental ways of expressing love.
