The Top Ten

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!
Sounds I little bit intimidating, but that makes it so cool!
When I hear some Germans speaking German I think they sound really sophisticated.
[Newest]German, when spoken properly, is efficient, strong, and confident. It's also has a logical grammar system that help foreigners learn it quickly.

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]I'm Russian and I love how it is so beautiful and has very simple grammar compared to English.

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.

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]I love the melody.

I am swedish and I think 1-Arabic 2-french 3-Italian 4-Chinese
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.
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.


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
There's a reason it's becoming a universal language
It sounds so nice! I love English and I'm from Germany by the way :D

"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.

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!

9Scottish 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.

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

The Contenders

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

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!

Compared to the official language in China (Mandarin), Cantonese has a much longer history.
One of the coolest languages even in China. It has 12 tones for each sound, each tone a word, making it one of the most difficult languages to learn. Everyone in Hong Kong speaks Cantonese.

It's a dead language, whenever someone speaks latin it sounds cool and mysterious :3
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.
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
[Newest]Latin sound like something... More than human to speak, though it made by man

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]Spanish is a diverse language that is pretty awesome.

Sounds really unique! A lot of "sh" sounds, but that's what makes it sound cool in my opinion.
Polish is not so hard to learn, contrary to popular belief. Also, it's beautiful!


Super complicated (and therefore cool-sounding) pronunciation.

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!
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!
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...

Romanian sounds pretty cool. In my opinion, it sounds better than Italian.
Romanian is a very beautiful sounding language
I don't like Romanian I prefer Italian

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.

Turkish language is not only beautiful but also very well-structured. It has a unique vowel harmony. Which makes it very poetic. It's a little hard, I'll give you that one. It's a language of 2000 years of history.
Damn awesome language! It should be in the TOP 10 at least!
Why it's in 56?
It would be in 0-20!
[Newest]Awesome language with long history, logical and beautiful
