I very like you

Direct translation from Mandarin to English often results in sentences which are grammatically incorrect. One such example is 'I very much like you.' This sentence comes from Mandarin that reads 'Wo fei chang xi huan ni.'

The correct sentence should have been 'I like you very much.'

Hence you should know which of the following sentences is correct:
1 Do you very like me?
2 Do you like me very much?
