    No.
    She loves me.
    She is in love with me.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It is wrong. "She is in love with me." Your question needs "to" after "explain".

    Re: Can I say; "She is love me"

    "She is in love with me" suggests romance. It is the kind of love between a couple.
    "She loves me" could also be used with a romantic couple but you could also be talking about your mother, aunt, sister etc.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Can I say; "She is love me"

    Thank You,

    "She is in love with me" - present continuous
    "She loves me" - simple present

    Is it correct?

    Re: Can I say; "She is love me"

    They are both simple present.

    Re: Can I say; "She is love me"

    She is (present simple) + in love (adjective) + with (preposition) + me (first person singular pronoun).
    She loves (present simple) + me (pronoun).

    The present continuous would be "She is loving me" or "She is being in love with me" - but neither one is natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
