sunsofgallifrey asked: Sorry if you've answered this before, but what is the difference between je veux and j'ai envie? Or does it matter which one you use?
je veux = “I want”, it’s a frank need
j’ai envie = a sort of “poetic” version of “I would like”, it’s the sweet desire of something.
Je veux une glace.
I want an ice cream.
J’ai envie d’une glace.
I really would like an ice cream right now.
