The Top TenXW

1English

It's the international language which is understands by anyone of any region. It removes all the barriers between different countries.

It is certainly world's best language because of many things: short words, simple grammar, beautiful sound and much much more I can hardly point out. English is the language of mankind.

English is the most universal language on Earth and for good reason as it is beautifully creative. Whenever I see the English language and the United States flag put together it pisses me off however. The language is English not American, get it right!

I can only speak English and Hindi

2French

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!

French sounds like poetic

3Spanish

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!

No offense to Spanish speakers but I thinks it's an ugly language

4Bengali

It is one of the most sweetest language in India as well as in world, the way of pronunciation in this language is is very sweet.

Without any doubt Bengali one of the most popular language of India & mother tongue of Bangladesh is the sweetest language of all. In the world of literature contribution of Bengali is no less than English or any other language.

Most of the IndoAryan Languages have the same origin and Sanskrit is the mother of many languages speak in Indian subcontinent. Sanskrit was the language of a rich culture and heritage since the time when most of the modern languages did not exist even English, the best international language without doubt. But this supremacy and elegant nature of English (with all due respect to the language from my heart and all the people speaking English) would not be possible without the British empire... What I mean to say is political power and not the pronunciation beauty of English played the key role for its world wide acceptance. Bengali is the sweetest language emerged from Sanskrit without doubt and in course of evolution since 10th century or prior to it, mixing with other languages it has become simpler as well as sweeter because of its eclectic quality and is still evolving. Bengali literature, songs, films has won all the greatest awards of the world in their respective fields without ...more

No other language is as best as Bengali

5Japanese

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.

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!

The most beautiful language in the world for me

Very beautiful, respectful, colorful, and poetic... but also very challenging!

6Russian

I can compare Latin, Greek, Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Russian and English. English has the biggest vocabulary, but unfortunately including too many homonyms. Being spoken worldwide, English is also the fastest in coming up with new terms and notions, which often remain unknown in other European languages until years, sometimes decades, later. A practical advantage of English is its simple grammar, but that also limits possibilities of expressing subtle aspects. Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch and even German also have simplified grammars, albeit not as simplistic as English.

Latin and Greek are beautifully structured and both well suited to poetry and science, but Latin seems a little cleaner. Roman poets loved decoration as much as Greek poets, but the Latin language can also express the essence of things with stoic and efficient purity.

Grammatically Russian is structured similar to Latin and Greek, taking all the advantages from that. Of those modern ...more

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.

Russian gives the feeling of, strong, powerful, intimidating, and forceful. Interpret that however you like.

7Italian

I know I shouldn't talk as I am Italian, but always living abroad I think a can give a personal opinion. I really love French and Spanish, I like English (British), Russian and actually Arabic too, a little. But I must say, Italian is the best. Its sound is amazing, is romantic, fluent, joyful, so poetical and "classical" (also because it comes from Latin). Its meanings are wonderful, with plenty of different shades and synonyms. There is no language like this, or at least for me.

Proved to be the most clear (or clearest) language on the radio, it has a very long history in fine litterature, a musical sound and a very broad dictionary (almost like English and Hindi, but with a bigger freedom to express having real verbal conjugation and free positioning of complements in phrasal period). It is a pity it is so irregular, but some might say this is good too.

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.

We are always confusing Italian and Spanish, but after a while you know that Spanish is much better, even if both are weak and old languages.

8Sinhalese

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.

Sinhalese has the most ingeniously arranged alphabet.

9Arabic

Have you guys ever listened to nasheed? Have you guys ever read portions of the Quran? I am not a Muslim myself, but I start trembling and crying every time I do. The words sound so beautiful when recited, and the complexity in its meaning is simply beyond me. Have you guys ever visited an Arab or Muslim country? These people respect their mothers. These people are honest with their employees. These people cherish their neighbors. These people personally welcome tourists as their guests. These people genuinely care for one another. These people are so smart, so kind, so content... they're simply enlightened.

And our society? We disrespect our parents, our teachers, our women, our neighbors, and our coworkers. We are far too busy to care for the single mother or the homeless man or the orphan child. We don't even have enough modesty to respect ourselves. I don't know why but in these people I see pure light. And I think their language and their culture are one and the same - ...more

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

I am Swedish, I can speak French, Spanish, I usuallly listen to arabic people speak with each others it looks very disgusting, but the first time I listened to an arabic poem, I was crying without even understanding the world, it's heart-touching! I have never felt like that! oh my god, unbelievable! this is not a language this is MAGIC! I have a dream that one day the whole world will speak arabic so we can speak from the HEART!

The Arabic language is poetical. You can have several meanings for one word and the way it is composed. It gives you the freedom to express your ideas in few words. Besides it has the best set of vocabularies!

10German

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 ...more

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!

German sounds like a proud solider. I like that.

The Contenders

11Tamil

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".

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..

Tamil is one of the oldest and most beautiful language in this world. It's just that not every one is blessed to speak or understand this language.

12Portuguese

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

The most poetic language ever! It's so phonetic

The best language, Portuguese from Brazil isn't too great though, but everywhere else it's awesome, especially Portugal.

13Telugu

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"...

Telugu has been voted as the 2nd best script in the world by International Alphabet Association.

14Hindi

Best language, with great pronouns and many meaning of one word, like in English... You can sing really great song in Hindi, which can be feel in heart, and its easy to speak as an second language, if you can speak neighbour language of Hindi, like Nepali, Bhojpuri, Bengali etc... I am not botn in India so my mother tongue is not Hindi, but I can still speak Hindi, I learn Hindi in 2-3 years. Just by watching movies, etc. So if you live near by India than its easy for you to learn English. And I think its kind of easy for others too. You can feel the words that is in Hindi... This language has really good feeling to your emotion. You can easily make jokes, story, etc in Hindi... Because it is different but the best language to learn and speak. My native language is Nepali, but I think Hindi is also a great language to speak. - Krishnadahal1999

Without any doubt I can tell that Hindi is one of the best language in the world

I am an Indian and I can proudly say that Hindi our main language is the best language in the whole world... I am really sad to see some people if India voting their state languages over Hindi...This language is a source which in its own way unites India

Hindi is the 2nd most speaking language in the world after mandarin chinese

15Chinese

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.

Every Chinese-English word translation has a meaning & a story. That's why they have various regional Chinese dialects whatever they use depend on their locality. - VNTMFans

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.

Best language ever

16Latin

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.

This should be #1 because without it would we not have languages such as Italian and Spanish, plus this language was supposed to be the superior language, not English. It is also a very poetic 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.

Always good to go back to the roots. - keycha1n

17Greek

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..

Greek is the most ancient language that exist today! Should be at least in top 5 of the list! It's unique and difficult to learn. It trains your mind

18Norwegian

I'm Swedish and this language is so beautiful! Yes I know, swedish and norweigan (and danish) are identical, but for me, norweigan sounds like Swedish but with such a beautiful and holy accent.
Way prettier than Swedish (my opinion, Swedish sounds quite natural for me).

It is a very nice languages to learn. I am mostly proud to be learning it well.

It's very unique language for sure with a nice sound and melody. It may be challenging to learn it, but result is worth it

It's such an interesting and unique language.

20Persian

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).

I'm agree with you

Persian is in number 1 or 2 or at least 3 on my opinion. The reason that It isn't on number 1 is the people don't know anything about it.

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

The most beautiful language in the world
