aimer vs. aimer + bien

aimer vs. aimer + bien

Is there any reason the lesson uses only aimer to mean "like" for J'aime lire but then uses aimer + bien for "like" in Vous aimez bien vous promener ?


I thought aimer meant love if bien wasn't added. Thank you!

Aimer could mean 'to like' too even without 'bien'. It depends on the context. This lesson might be helpful:
