Top Ten Romantic Languages


The Top TenXW


I agree that Spanish is by far the most romantic language, but I disagree with some of the above comments. I feel that Mexico has the best accent, certain parts do at least. This is probably because it's closest to our English and all consonants are pronounced. In Puerto Rican speakers usually switch the R and L and bunch words together, as do Cubans and a lot of other countries, they also tend to speak faster or seem faster and harder to understand because of this... Spaniards tend to have a bit of a lisp. I am part Spanish so I am being objective... I do agree at how descriptive and poetic one expresses themselves in Spanish, I sometimes think of things in Spanish and then translate to English when I want to melt a special lady's heart...

Spanish is probably the most beautiful language. As a musician composer I can not find other language than Spanish to give the same freedom to compose.

Dominican Spanish is so romantic. It sounds like a song even when they are arguing. I could listen to them speak all day. Certainly

Spanish is so lovely to hear

Its a way to express feeling and emotion in a way like no other. It originates from a place of great beauty. The lang. Is thought of highly and is respected for its ways of making someone know you truly care

The french is beautiful. They have the best love song in the world. The language may be hard, (it is even hard for french) but the difficulty able you to express feeling better. Believe me, be able to sing in french work with laddies ;).

I think french is most beautiful and language in the world.
I like and love french.
Because he is very attractive ^^ romance.

Romantic, lovely, that's about all.

Italian all the way. Its like you're singing when you talk.

As an American I am not exposed to the amount of beauty and true love that is brought through the harsher landscapes of the land. In Italy I see a world that could never be seen here in America and I realized that if the native people of the italian landscapes actualy looked up and saw where they were they would realize that they are the holders of true beauty. Making them cherish other beautiful things so much more than the people of my country.

The biggest turn on language and is very widely known along with French and Spanish

I think Italian should be the top 1 it's so beautiful and nice I think its sexy too on a guy that can speak Italian

It`s so phonetic! I love the way it sounds.

try going to Brazil and check it for oyurself...

Portuguese (from Brazil mainly) it's a very beaultiful language, you feel like every word is materializing, so captivating! If people give a chance, they would understand that it's a romantic language (although it is difficult). Try to listening MPB (Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Maria Gadu, Marisa Monte) and you will see.

Portuguese, from Portugal or from Brazil, is one of the most beautiful languages in the world. Listen to the music of the language, feel the way each word is pronounced and you will fall in love with portuguese

I think since English is the most wide spread language in the world it is by far one of the most romantic, together with French ^^ Italian. There are so many ways to say "I love you" ^^ even more. Words express so much in this language, it's almost like you can feel the meaning of the words in physical form. The sound of this language is also unique in it's own way, in my opinion and the fact that you can mold 26 letters/sounds in to such a vast array of words shows the beauty of this language by whole.

English is not THE most romantic sounding language in the world, but it does not deserve ninth place. English is far to popular and widespread to not be considered in at least the top 5! Italian, Romanian, French, Spanish and then English. English, though extremely difficult to learn, opens up an innumerable amount of phonetic freedom when honed and used properly. English is by far in the top 5!

Let's be serious. The only ones that beat English are Spanish French and Italian ( maybe Portuguese depending on the speaker) English is at worst the 5th most romantic language in the world. Eloquent speakers can use the language to create unmatched beauty just like Shakespeare used to do.

I agree and disagree. English is easy to learn and easy to understand. This language is the most common one, so it's not that impressive.

Japanese in my opinion is the best language for singing. It's unique because all syllables are open, and even n sound is syllabic so it sounds like a vowel in songs... I haven't found a language that would suited for singing better then Japanese. (some Polynesian languages have some similar qualities in the way their syllables are built (for example Maori), but unfortunately these languages are mostly dying out). Japanese culture and science is very rich and in many ways unique too. I think Japanese is very romantic (except for gangster speech... Like.. Kora teme wa dare the! Ore wa dare the to omou.. Etc) but ladies usually don't use such kind of language, and gentlemen too. So Japanese is the best for singing, very romantic and pleasant to listen to. Rap is the only thing Japanese language is bad at=) But I don't care about it, because I hardly listen to rap. Well it doesn't mean that every song in Japanese is nice, no.. Not at all.. There are tones of bad ones.. But tones of good ...more

Simply the best language ever. The range of emotions is very wide, from the most vicious, to the most romantic as well as to the cutest voice

The Japanese language, (I am learning currently) is more beautiful then what I thought. When I talk in Japanese, I seem... Younger, and I'm in my late teens. Italian is nowhere near romantic in my opinion. French is only on here due to stereotype's on T.V.. Spanish is kinda... Ugly in my opinion. - Buddha

This is the single most greatest language ever made. Humans will go down in alien history for this language.

When I hear Greek girls talking..its a turn on - matty101

Very smooth flowing and romantic, you get a feeling for how ancient and developed of a language Greek really is! Just listen to anything by Nikos Vertis or Hristos Holidis and you'll see!

I speak Greek too my wife all the time an she has
No idea what I'm saying but she loves it


I love Korean, cause it sounds romantic it's has many Vowels that's why it is smooth to the ear... Example SARANGHAEYO (I Love You) and Keuraeyo? (RIGHT? )... The "yo" it sound's sweet... Because it is WAVING and other words.. And it is simple to learn I know how to write and Read.. In the grammar it's quite difficult...

Korean words are very unique, in comparison wit Japanese Korean language very different. particularly songs, them are so beautiful. then you listening them you even can't image that this is Korean. I love how they speak in informal and formal way, its like two different languages, but is it not. I'm from Europa and my biggest dream to speak Korean.

Songs in this language are the best because they flow so easily. The characters are beautiful and easy to learn. The language is so expressive and you can convey any feeling like when you say (I miss you) you can really hear the feel and the love. So romantic!

It is the best lan

A sharp, yet smooth and amazing language. The idiosyncrasies and various influences make it truly a one-of-a-kind and beautiful language~

it is one of the most romantic launguages so you can't beat that its the 3rd most romantic language.

Lovely sound, very similar to Italian, but not so sappy. The Slavic influences do away with its sappiness!

Spanish and French are too overrated. Romanian looks better and sounds better. - velitelcabal

In Hindi you can find word for each and every thing in the world. Other than this it gives respect to each and every individual irrespective of their age, qualification and religion. It's not like English in which everyone is either uncle or aunty.

This language has it's own beauty but person who don't know it how he/she could be able to vote it. After all it needs beauty to find beauty So, learn this language then you will realize I was faking.

Its Hindi that admires beauty through its songs at least listen to them.

Just hear some hindi songs and think of this list again. When anyone speaks hindi it seems that he is reciting poem

Love has no language... If you love someone than you can say everything without saying anything. Although everyone like their own language. So I'll say Hindi is my language which is mother of every other language as our culture is the oldest in the world.

With words for everything, Hindi, mixed with Urdu has a lyrical quality yo it that helps you feel poems, even if you don't understand them

The Contenders


One of the only ancient languages that is still used commonly, every word can have 100 meanings to it, a language that may sound odd to outsiders, but to those who understand it realize it's a language that purely comes from the heart.

The language of the Qur'an, a book which even the greatest Arab poets said can be from no one other then Almighty Allah (God) Arabic Is a language like no other, one blessed by Allah just listen to the Qur'an it puts even non-Arabic speakers to tears.

Poetry was inspired by arabic the older the language the more original! It definitely shouldn't be 25th French and Italian have massive arabic influence historically and sharazad still remains the best story teller of all time or one of! Not to mention also many many Arabian poets not appreciated today because of bias!

Very sweet language " if you not learn this language you lost your heart

Amazing language, so many different words to express oneself.

The most romantic language in my opinion.. Sexy accent. The way germans roll the letter 'r' is just so attractive to me!

When Germans want to sound cute speaking German, they do a fantastic job. Very underrated and misunderstood language!

And Rammstein said it's the language of humor. Maybe it could be both! - velitelcabal

Well, than Most Asian LANGUAGE! TAGALOG (FILIPINO) is the most ROMANTIC of all for me... THERE is a CRIOLLO langauge in Southern Philippines (in Zamboanga Peninsula) called "CHAVACANO", which is much strongly Castillian-Spanish and a less mixture of native language. FILIPINOS are the most ROMANTIC PEOPLE in ASIA----According to JAMES KIRKUP: "THE MIXTURE OF MALAY AND SPANISH CHARM MAKES FILIPINOS THE MOST ROMANTIC PEOPLE IN ASIA, RIVALED ONLY BY THE PORTUGUESE OF MACAU"...

Lots of SPANISH loanwords had integrated to various PHILIPPINES LANGUAGES.

PHILIPPINES SOCIETY is largely MALAY, also, SPANISH FILIPINOS (MESTIZOS) can be seen and had integrated into society... FILIPINOS are only ASIANS that are always got to be in the TOP 3, TOP 5 or 15 ----MISS UNIVERSE, MISS WORLD, MISS INTERNATIONAL and various PAGEANTS!...

Tagalogs have romance seriously, okay. And romantic it definitely stands for. Love that Tagalog is one amazing mix of culture, Asian, American, and Spanish all. Therefore, the romanticism of language is definitely deep and is wide range. - arianejoypiu00f1olcoronel

mahal ka (i love you)
mahal mo ba ako (do u love me?)
kinikilig ako (i'm blushing)
gusto kita (i want u)
papakasalan mo ba ako (will u marry me?)
saan, gusto mo ngaun na? (where? do u want it now?)
teka, tanong ko muna sa mga magulang ko (wait, i'll ask my parents first)

gagawin na ba natin ung alam mo na (shall we do the u know?)

Latin is the most beautiful ancient language. Even till this day it has such a smooth sound. Like Italian. English and Spanish combined.

My older brother is learning Latin and I know some words, and they sound musical.

Latin involved the 3 most beautiful languages : Spanish, French and Italian... Gracias


The only other language that might come remotely close to Persian in this respect might be French. Spanish? English? Russian? Korean? Are you kidding me? These languages sound mechanical or low quality in comparison to Persian. Persian is simply an art. I've been learning Persian for only one year, and I still can't understand majority of words; however Persian poetry is simply amazing. The Rhythm, the sound, the way the words are juxtaposed is simply unrivaled. From what I understand, they have more poetry literature than the whole Europe combined. Shakespeare sounds armature in comparison to some of the great Persian poets.

There are so many different ways one can say "I love you" or "sweetheart" or "my love" in Persian. Just using different combinations make me sound like a love poet. The greatest love poets of all time (Rumi) wrote in Persian and to this day people translate it into their native tongue, but its original wording is so beautifully written it loses some value once translated. Not only that but the culture is very warm and loving (if you ever visit you would know)

Are you kidding me?! Korean, Romanian and Hindi are among the top ten and Persian and Latin are not?! Then I really have no idea what you mean by Romance! Persian alone has more masterpiece of romantic poems than your whole top ten languages combined. It is so poetic and beautiful that you should really really try hard not to be poetic. The first sentence that I wrote in Persian is most beautiful than many of the English poems that we learned at school. And Latin?! Don't even get me started on this one. !

Most beautiful language in the WORLD

Ukrainian language is very gentle and colorful. If you even shout at somebody in Ukrainian, it sounds as if you make a declaration of love))) Ukrainian can sound like gentle whispering as well as singing of nightingale. That's why among Ukrainian-speaking people Ukrainian is called 'the nightingale's language'.
Besides Ukrainian songs are widely considered as an outstanding contribution to the world's culture. Just find them on the Internet and enjoy listening)))

After Italian the most beautiful and melodious language in the world - Irina2932

You won't find another language where you can describe something in more than 10 ways. And only if you are a native speaker you can catch a slight difference between those words

I would like to learn this language one day. - Pony

UNSCO have regard this language as the most Sweetest Language.

Only the sweetest language for which Bangladeshi people sacrificed their lives... and the calling of mother that is "maa" is the sweetest one of the world

Bangla is a mixed language and that makes it more sweeter. Bangla language gives respect to each and every individual irrespective of their age, qualification and riligion. It's not like English in which everyone is either uncle or aunty. Bangla is like a gold for the writers because it's a very beautiful language. Bangla is a romantic language too.

Bangla and bengali are the same language. So, why the difference in rank occurs?

Who dare to rank bengali like this. whoever it is he or she is mentally retired

Bengali language has full of emotions, love and affection.
