Hi Sumesh, 

This is because the verb 's'amuser' is intransitive and cannot have an object but you could use 'apprécier' instead of 'aimer which are transitive.

Hope this helps!

Hi Cécile!

I don't understand what is Intransitive and thus didn't get why s'amuser can't be used.

Hope to receive a response.

Merci!

Hi Padmati, 

Here is the link to what an intransitive verb is.

Verbe intransitif

You couldn't use s'amuser' because it cannot have an object so if you need to translate to enjoy something you will use 'aimer' or apprécier.

 

Hope this helps!
