Worst Language in the World « see full list



Everybody in China are going to be offended by this! One thing I wonder is why we think there are some ugly languages. Why do you think some languages are ugly anyway? I mean, seriously everybody! Just because you can't understand them, doesn't mean that they're speaking an ugly language. There is no such thing as an ugly language!
Maybe some Chinese people will find this offensive, but I don't. I'm Chinese but I speak fluent English and French. I just gotta say Chinese is way too complicated. One symbol per word? NOPE. And for a simple word like "me" ("moi" in French) is like 10 strokes. Plus you have to do them in a specific order. And the language sounds like a 2-year old girl arguing about who's turn it is to play with a doll. Seriously. Watch a Chinese movie. Wow.
No offense, but Mandarin is the worst language in the world. It is a language which a lot of Chinese speak so harshly and so communist.

By the way, don't listen to Kenneth's comment, Cantonese is the best language to learn.
My neighbors are Chinese and they make fun of me when I didn't do anything to them! They look and at and they say to each other "Ching pi Ming Che Che Wu Wu " I can hear them yelling from downstairs the language is so annoying it gives me migraines its so harsh and very confusing and disgusting!
How do you know they're making fun of you if you don't speak it? For all you know they could be talking about something completely different; not everything revolves around you.
Chinese language gives me a headache

Once I was at school and I was talking to my friend and then all of a sudden a Chinese girl came up to me and she was speaking Chinese with me! I felt like smacking her so hard ( I'm not Chinese)
Oh my god! It's not a language, it's a real IQ programm for our memory! Can you imagine how many hieroglyph you are suppose to memorize to speak?! More than 9000! It's terrible
Not only those syllables sound ugly if repeated over and over again in one sentence (yes, I am talking about that chong chong thing), but those tones don't make it better either. If you constantly raised and lowered your voice while speaking you would sound nothing less than retarded
I went to a Chinese dance producation the other day, and there was a Mandarin translator. It was bearable, but a huge issue with the Chinese language is that it's really not something that can be translated into English. It's more funny than anything, and I was trying not to laugh at the translation screen the whole time.


Just too difficult to learn. Sure Millions of people speak it but do they actually love it after learning another language.
If it wasn't meant to be made, then why is it one of the older languages? Also, your languages probably sound terrible to someone else's ears, somewhere, as well. It's not that bad.
Chinese characters are all big and scary, hard to learn, and it sounds so weird. All the things that I hear is ching, xiang, chong... So annoying! It's not beautiful at all! Chinese is the most ugliest language in the entire world.
It's ridiculous to say a language is ugly just because you don't understand it, in fact there is no such thing as a ugly language, it's just a language, I have French friend who thinks English is disgusting how it sounds like they're eating peanuts
You got to remember all the letters and there are no shortcuts! How to write them is like torture. Not saying it is bad but it is just hard to understand unlike Spanish which we can guess some words.


There are so many Chinese students in my dorm. Every time they speak, I just want to pull my hair out and get the hell out. It sounds whiny and disgusting.
Why can't they have words and not symbols? This and Japanese it's like, "Woah, woah, woah, slow down." VERY confusing. English is just hard to learn


Well, actually Chinese isn't only cantonese and mandarin.
Whatever, every kind of Chinese sounds difficult to understand, even the easiest mandarin.
I'm more worried about the comments than voting for the language itself...
When chinese people are speaking, everybody 's irritated by the noise
Seriously whenever a group of people started jabbering away in Chinese anyway near me, I get the hell away from there or I'll probably have to get my ears fixed
Just because Chinese is difficult and deep you guys hate it
I'm not being racist but when they talk they speak very loudly and it like a monkey talking. It sound like there shouting rude words.
There are multiple Chinese languages. You should have put a more specific Chinese language.
As a Chinese I think this language sounds lame. Wish I was Japanese
They would probably be saying the exact same thing about English


It annoys me so much, and I think that we can all agree on that one
Too many dialects. Too many characters. Sounds chaotic & obnoxious. Terrible language.
