2Sinhalese
Sinhalese better known as Sinhala is an Indo-Aryan Language which is Spoken by Sinhalese, Though I am not a Sinhalese I knew it from my childhood, I hope its one of the Best Languages in the World, A Person who can Pronounce Sinhala well undoubtedly will able to Pronounce any Language in the World in a native manner (or closer) that's the amazing fact
Sinhalese or Sinhala is one of the very few melodious languages in the World, Sinhalese no doubt becomes one of the most fertile and Greatest languages in the World as well.
Sinhala is considered as the most beautiful accent & most beautiful alphabet that a language has on earth. It has evolved for over 1000 years and so is well designed today. But, unfortunately, it's spoken by a very small no. Of people around the world and majority in Sri Lanka, also among the top 30 dying languages due to decreasing use of it due to lack of natural evolution and lack of availability of reference for higher studies and research. But, it still is the most beautiful language on earth.

3English
Its the international language which is understands by anyone of any region. It removes all the barriers between different countries.
I am writing in English right now. Which actually proves something! English is the greatest thing that happened to the Earth
English can be a bit difficult with pronunciation and spelling sometimes but on the whole it is much simpler due to no different genders and endings

4Italian
A language which is simply a beautiful music to hear... So rythmic and romantic to listen and to speak, a language which has been the founder of most of languages in the world.
It's such a rythmic and beautiful language! I love it when I hear people speaking it...!
It's true that English is really helpful, but definitely it's not that nice..!
Ciao!
Italian is popular in operas like Madame Butterfly. Also, Italy is interesting!

5Tamil
Only 30% of ancient tamil literature is recovered... Other older literary proofs got destroyed in natural calamities... In 30% of the existing content we have such a rich content... Now you can think about the greatness in this language... TAMIL (TAMIZH) THE BEST
I really love Tamil poems. They describe emotions into many cascading layers effortlessly. I love the way Tamil poem's world selection. Let it be the hell or heaven, one will feel it while reading. I cried many a times. It brought Che Kuvera in me. I've got the kick of 1000 bottles of wine at a same time. Very happy to see it, topping the list of Indian languages. Today I know there are 9 more beautiful languages I can't just miss..
I am a Thamizh. I know fluently to read, write and speak in Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi, and have knowledge in Sanskrit grammar also. In my opinion I see Thamizh is "THE BEST". Not because I am a Thamizh but in no other languages I knew the words are having their roots and correct reasons in them. And those words' roots you can find in Thamizh. And the words not only just have correct reasons but when put together in sentences "ITS SWEET". I think this sweetness is because of its "SIMPLENESS".

6Spanish
You have to say first that the spanish language is originally from Spain (Europe), because so much people don't known that Spain is on Europe, and then also most people from South america and central america speak it.
One of the few languages you can speak without feeling embarrassed. It is a very poetic language
The best language! Come on people, the most used language, it is used in such countries like, Mexico, Cuba and most of the Americas and I think the US Government is trying to make it an official language!

7French
French is the best language in the world! It is a very polite languge and people who think that French is a bad language are silly. The French language is obviously by far the best language so just admit it!
Bonjour, Minseurs, Madames and Madamoselles!
French is GREAT!
Comment ca va?
French is the best language! Much better than all the languages they listed anyway!

8German
There is only one language I know perfect for science on this planet. And it is german. I am studying physics in America. And even the war is over for years and english overtook the place for most important language in science our professor still has told us to study this language, to get better in physic. And I did, and what did I learn? I firstly understood the relativity Therory in a whole new way of course. But I was able to get it much better. Still it is hard to get, because I wasn't able to get all of it, but I am moving on...
What I've learned is, that german is a language you shoul learn at least for science, because it has developed very important stuff, we still need today.
And if you are not that kind, it is still worth learning, because English lost so much through invasions of its heritage, you'll see by learning german. So learning is easy after a while, but the start is hard, because you are prejudiced by bad rumors of this language.
Not to forget, I am just an english native, other languages will probably see german as very challenging, and it was first, but not after a while...
Only through the complexity of this language, many developments have occured like "The relativity Theorie" and a lot of other modern stuff. But this is only a sidewalk of this language. It sounds hard to most non native speakers because the language is in relation to "Hitler" and it will stay there for a long time, I guess. Whatever language you like to learn, a language is always the best thing you can do for your brain. So as a native english speaker, german is very related and should not be banished because of history, like nearly 70 years ago.
German for me is the most creative flexible and also precise Language. Not only for Science and Research, but also for literature, music and culture. It is so rich of words and expressions and you can make up new words by combining existing ones. I like the Sound and melody of the language. It sounds very educated and represents the modern Germany with its modern, elegant, efficient and also fun orientated Lifestyle. As the two biggest European Parties are celebrated there. Oktoberfest in Munich and Carneval in Cologne. The Language fits to with it and to have great Fun!

9Telugu
It can be treated as the worlds sweetest language... Because already it has a title "Italian of the east".. Most of the words in Telugu ends with vowels which brought the language sweetness... Once you listen the language you can will believe that even honey is also somewhat lesser in sweetness of the Telugu... Its simply rocks... And music in this particular language is simply super... This language had preserved the language game called 'asthavadanam' which has extinguished in the other Indian languages except Sanskrit...
Eager to learn Telugu.. Its nice to hear this language and even to learn... I can say this, as one of the sweetest classical languages I heard. It is even called as "Italian of east"...
Sweetest language in the south, even ancient Tamil poets praised telugu. Foreigners refer to telugu as the Italien of the east, and was even regarded to have status of the indian natonal language. I do not know why this is only the eleventh best language.

10Russian
Best language to express any specific feeling situation it's deep and very precise language... Maybe that's why so much writers and poets used this language for their masterpieces
Ok, some of the greatest poets used this language to describe feeling and emotions(Leo Tolstoy greatest writer in Russian history). Very cool language to speak. All of you should know it.
Pretty cool language! It is mad when your watching an action movie and there are Russian terrorists talking in their language and it just makes em look badass!

11Portugese
Portugueses sounds very romantic. I really like the language, but Portuguese from brazil.
The Portuguese from Europe and Africa sucks, but the Portuguese from Brazil is awesome. It sounds totally different than any other kind of Portuguese spoken worldwide. It is consequence of the influence that the Brazilian Portuguese received of a lot of other languages, such as Italian, Spanish, German, languages of Brazilian Indians, and languages brought from Africa by black slaves. It is what made the Portuguese from Brazil be the beautiful language that it is nowadays.
I think it is he best language ever

12Japanese
Japanese in college is challenging, but if you get a good tutor to speak some to you it will sound quite melodious. Japanese is also the language of Japan, which I adore all things Japan. Go Japan from US!
I love Japanese language, I speak both Spanish and English and after speaking these languages for all your life you eventually get tired. I started watching anime a few months ago and the moment I hear it, I loved the language.
The most beautiful language in the world for me

13Latin
Latin has been a dead language for a thousand years, yet people still speak it. That must prove the strength and beauty of the Latin language.
Latin may be a dead language, but it is what structured languages such as English and French. Everyone who learns Latin learns it to accept its beauty.
Romanian is a latin language...it is so Romantic and full of expressions and proverbs!

15Ukrainian
Ukrainian language sometimes like Italian, so nice melodic and soft
Ukrainian songs are well known in all former Soviet republics because of their beauty. When Ukrainians speak their language abroad, many people stop to listen to it and ask: what language is this?
Very melodic language, just try listening to it!

16Chinese
Chinese is the most beautiful language in the world, especially traditional Chinese, it consists of China's 5, 000 years of history. Either in its writing or speaking, it's perfectly amazing.
It's the only language that each character has its own meaning, and the meaning can be shown in the character because it might show the sound, shape, or both.
Chinese is amazingly beautiful and melodious. Poetic to : tian an men means "door of the celestial tranquility".

17Arabic
The original Arabic text of the Qur'an has been preserved from the time of its revelation. Translations have been done into various languages, but they all refer back to the original Arabic. In order to fully understand the magnificent words of their Lord, Muslims make every attempt to understand the rich and poetic classical Arabic language.

Bringls

Arabic is the most beahtiful written language in the world, and learning written Arab is easier than learning written English or French, as words tend to be shorter and letters are very succint =, thus each word is like a special character which the eye can recognize faster than recognizing french or english words.
Arabic is so beautiful, and it has so many different accents which makes it even more special, and the original Arabic (Arabic Fus-ha) is the most beautiful of them all! I feel so proud of speaking Arabic!

18Korean
Korean is wonderful and smooth to the ears. The flexibility of the language even allows it to pronounce words in other languages almost identically. It really puts a person at ease just by hearing someone speak the language (calmly), it's not heavy and doesn't have a lot of twists and turns to the sound. Although it was "borrowed" from Japanese, the way it's written is totally different. The shapes of the letters are adapted from shapes of nature, and looks simple and clean to one's eyes. Korean, like other languages, is cool.
It is so cool! Korean language is the sweetest language laugh out loud laugh out loud because when we talk it sounds so smooth and it is easy for us to learn! KOREAN IS THE BEST!
Korean is very logical and poetic.

19Greek
Greek should be at least at top 10. It's the Big Mama of ALL European Languages. It is a very interesting, and one of the few surviving Ancient Languages. For a thousand years it was the most important language in tge world, everyone should speak Greek, even Jesus Christ knew Greek. It is simply Majestic...
Seriously? Greek should be on number 1...
Why is Greek so low in that list? Almost every language has many greek words in it.. We owe the greek language the existense of all of our languages..

20Kannada
As a saying goes "you don't need a teacher to learn Kannada" ("ee bhaasheyanna kaliyalu guruvina agathyavilla! "). It's so simple, technically rigid & soothing to the ears. Many outsiders have learned the language & have continued their interest into Kannada literature (E. G George Ferdinand Kittle & among many others ). That says a lot about the attractiveness of it. It's one of the oldest living languages of the world dating back to several becauses. It's grammatical completeness is sought after by many litterateurs. Kannada words are so interesting & wonderful. I love my language to the core
One of the oldest and classical language in the world and considered as the 3rd most beautiful script language in the world. The only indian language to enter the list.
Its the sweetest of all languages in the world. Anyone in the world can easily learn kannada. And I'm very proud to be a kannadiga. This is the only language which has got more number of jnana peeta award.

21Polish
Polish is so beautiful! It's unique compared to other Slavic languages, with way more French, German and Latin influences than most Slavic languages. Also, some people have compared our phonetics to Portuguese - probably because of the nasal ą and ę, which only our Slavic language has! It's not as hard as most people say - all of the grammar that most people learn while learning Polish is archaic or not used in speaking. Most Poles make a ton of grammatical mistakes anyway :P Polish music is cool too!

22Persian
One of the most beautiful sounding languages! It sounds so soft, the words sound beautiful and I basically love the way it sounds. Also I think that if you will learn persian you will not speak it with the accent of your native language. (i'm not persian by the way).
The persian language just flows beautifully, it is a very poetic and sweet dialect which never sounds harsh nor brash. It's charming, soft, and lyrical. Just gorgeous.
! This is the most descriptive language after spanish in my opinion, its like so good, it has lots of different words and as a native speaker who knows, English, Turkish and arabic as well, I am just so proud to say I can speak in such a language

Assamese is also a feminine language, the way people pronounce the language is heart touching.

40Hungarian
Hungarian is hard to learn, but if you do, you can express anything in a single word. And it is also a beatiful language, which can sound however you want, for example spiritual in the Bible or agressive in a metal. Whenever somebody explores the beauty and uniqueness of this language, he/she will be pleased. And even more, the Hungarian poets write like Shakespeare, just easier to understand
Hungarian is perhaps the most expressive language, but using it at such a level is extremely hard. It's my native language, but sometimes I still find myself lost, when I try to express myself.

41Dutch
How to write in Dutch:
1. Bang head on keyboard.
2. If you can read it erase and start over.
3. Press space. Repeat.

I'm just playing. I just love tryin to pronounce this stuff.
Dutch and English are sister languages, so it uses some English words
