The Top Ten

1
German
German: The most widely spoken language in Europe, most learned language after English in Japan, and- coolest language on earth. And I say that as a Taiwanese!
When I hear some Germans speaking German I think they sound really sophisticated.
Sounds I little bit intimidating, but that makes it so cool!
[Newest]German, when spoken properly, is efficient, strong, and confident. It's also has a logical grammar system that help foreigners learn it quickly.

2Russian
Russian, even though is extremely difficult to learn, is so interesting with the flexible word order and mysterious sounds. I have been studying for 3 years and feel as if I am just now appreciating the culture and influence the Russian people have made upon the world.
It sounds very cool and is difficult to learn, making it something impressive to know. Additionally, there are plenty of Russian speakers in the world to practice it with, making it something practical, rather than Gaelic and Irish.
Russian is a fab one to learn. It sounds so awesome. Although it is quite a complex language, it definitely is one of the best!
[Newest]Very manly language and very scary but the GOOD scary

3Swedish
I love Swedish. I used to teach myself Swedish, and then my parents took me to Sweden for a week so I could practice more, and I love the language so much now. Ha en bra dag!
Some of you have never heard Swedish before and are just passing this one by. You guys HAVE to look up someone talking in Swedish. ' amazing.
Swedish is really awesome
[Newest]Have you heard anyone speaking it? It's like singing while talking!

4French
"Rouge. " I like how in French, the beginning of the word gets ahead of the tongue of the person speaking it. Then, at the end of the word, the tongue catches up to the word.
French is the Mona Lisa of languages for it's artistic beauty compels and blows away anyone who once second guessed French as a stupid language in general.
I speak fluent French and I feel this language is beautiful
[Newest]No language can beat this flowery language.

5English
Speaking English is the only way to be understood in each corners of this planet. There is nothing cooler than that.
There's a reason it's becoming a universal language
What wrong with the votes this language should be tops when not why the bloody hell is every tom dick and harry learning it it a world language admit it or shove it

6Arabic
I am swedish and I think 1-Arabic 2-french 3-Italian 4-Chinese
The words are very beautiful and so pleasing, I wish I could learn it, it's the toughest language in the world, but I like it.

Sounds amazing. Arabic has very particular and amazing sounds, and is awesome to hear. My teachers would compliment me about the way it sounds when I speak it.
[Newest]Can I Teach Someone?

7Japanese
It sounds so cool! By just listening to a Japanese song or watching an anime you'll find it amazing and cool!
2 alphabets, and Kanji make it hell of a challenge. That's why I love it.
Japanese IS AWESOME! Enough said
[Newest]Love the language. I am planning on going to Japan so I am learning the language.

8Scottish Gaelic
I'm so happy to see this here. I love everything Scottish and I think the way it flows, yet is powerful is one of the most fascinatingly beautiful things on the planet.
Awesome grammar, syntax and spelling! A shame it's dying
Like Irish, but manlier! All those weird pronunciation rules: dh = g, bh = v, th and sh = h; broad and slender vowels changing thesound of surrounding consonants...M... Its better than Fried Chicken.

9Irish
It sounds so beautiful and unique, and the phonics are very different from English. Also, it feels very soft and dancing on your tongue.
Very interesting, immensely growing language. I love it! I highly recommend it.
My native language, so of course I believe it is the world's coolest!

10Italian
The sexiest, coolest, most erotic and sensual language in the world!
Words and sounds are really cool and they've got a very lovely accent, sometimes hilarious (I've been to Italy twice).
I love Italian so much. It a 'bella' language, and I constantly come out with Italian phrases every day at home. I have been to Italy before (I'm English) and the country is as beautiful as the language. Ciao bella/bello!

The Contenders

11Belarusian

12Dutch
So sophisticated, pure and beautiful.
It sounds so funny to me, since I speak both English and German - very child-like!
Double vowels! Written Dutch looks awesome!
[Newest]German sounds better, sorry...

13Spanish
Passionate and to the point. It is what it is, there is no hiding in fancy French or Latin vocabulary (it be silly). No need to make weird noises to sound good, as long as you say something meaningful you are good.
I like Spanish because I like Mexican
It is the third most spoken language in the world.
[Newest]I love this one! I haven't learned it, but I like using some words in it!

14Hebrew
The language looks and sounds great! Modern Hebrew is also very closely related to biblical Hebrew; this means that by learning one (modern Hebrew) you have almost learned the other (biblical Hebrew). It is of course a very flexible language as well.
A beautiful language, the sentence structure is very flexible, you can have " big red balloon, red big balloon, or balloon big red ext. (Spanish speakers will be happy to see Noun before Verb possible, and English Speakers will like it because you can put Verb before Noun. The Language is simple each word is written as it's spelled. (English speakers will love that)
It's the language of the Jews.. the Jews are the coolest.. do the math
[Newest]I like the language

15Polish
Sounds really unique! A lot of "sh" sounds, but that's what makes it sound cool in my opinion.
Super complicated (and therefore cool-sounding) pronunciation.
Polish is not so hard to learn, contrary to popular belief. Also, it's beautiful!

16Finnish
My opinion is: Finnish is the best and coolest language in the world, mostly because the words are written and pronounced exactly the same. And - SURPRISE SURPRISE - Finnish is my native language!
Amazing Language, very melodic, sounds very beautiful when people are not trying to sound like douches... The language can be really tricky for some people to learn as it is belongs to the Uralic language and it's vokab can be completely alien to people.. As well as tricky grammar...
I would really LOVE to learn Finnish but it's hard to find resources since it's not really a language that people LEARN... Especially online. It really sounds beautiful!
[Newest]I live in New Zealand and I've heard a lot of languages and Finnish is my favorite after Icelandic, Slovak, German and Old English

17Korean
It's my first language and I love it. I also do love English, Japanese, Spanish and Chinese so I tried to learn them all, and I find that English is very brilliant and efficient as I can speak with people all around the world, and Japanese is very smoothing and sound so cute, but Chinese and Korean have some kinds of feeling, I guess? Their words are full of meanings. I really like to write 'Love' in Chinese character after one of my Chinese friends taught me its character is a combination of roof and friend (Please correct me if I'm wrong). And I love my language because, maybe because I am a native speaker, but I find it beautiful whenever I read or write poems and novels.
I am doing a poster on a language blood line. I think this will be my choice.
Best alphabet ever (hangul) very logical writing system and sounds so nice, kinda soft in tone

18Greek
Very fast and elegant when spoken; the language of liturgical Greek Orthodox chants.
I feel like if I learn greek I'll know more about the root of things. Quite literally.
Its just sounds so ancient
[Newest]Super Awesome. Old Greek Elite for the win

19Latin
It's a dead language, whenever someone speaks latin it sounds cool and mysterious :3
I think Latin is cool because it's something like modified English like Aquarium comes from Aqua, meaning water... Actually a lot of English words comes from Latin
Latin is beautiful. It was widespread, and the basis for most languages. This basically means that if you learn Latin, learning other languages will be easier.
[Newest]Latin is very cool, my brother is learning it!

20Portuguese
The Portuguese language and a very rich, it has some words and phrases that only those who speak Portuguese can really understand, what this word or phrase means. For example: Saudade, that's the only word that exists only in Portuguese and is considered as an abstract noun. In other languages ​​there are words that express the same idea, but they are regarded as expressions. In Brazilian Portuguese, we have many words of indigenous origin (so the Brazilian Portuguese can be considered an exotic language) For example Abacaxi -> Pineapple (fruit smelling), xará-> (someone who has the same name as you), or Tainá (It is a name that the indigenous language means Star) etc...
And it is also somewhat sensual, who would not want to hear Eu te amo you close your ear? Or Me the um beijo? , me abraca forte or eu estou com saudade de voce,...   Romantic, no? At least charming :)
Portuguese is just beautiful be it from Brazil or Portugal os some African countries. The best is from Portugal though, its original, poetic as Brazilian is more fun and happy.
