Worst Language in the World « see full list



I have to say as a Britain-born Chinese receiving traditional authentic Chinese education, I understand that Eastern languages which distinguish meanings basically by vowels instead of consonants (like English) can sound very weird when you don't understand. And also, the folk speak in a very mundane way with all kinds of accent which makes Mandarin sound annoying. It's a language can only sound a bit of decent when announcers and T.V. series roles are speaking, otherwise not really pleasant to hear.

But the point I want to make here is that: this vote per se is very stupid and it just triggers out all kinds of superficial people couped up in their little funny world, expressing there shallow useless opinions while they don't know anything about how noble Chinese is in terms of written language.

No conjugation, extremely flexible, full of stream-of-subconscious, profound and rendering endless space for imagination (not like western words with set definition and written exactly in the way they are spelled, which is stagnant and DEAD). The invention of characters is supremely wise. It's like one more layer added onto the spelling (just like the difference between human and other primates), without which Chinese can be as shallow as every language else. Have you tried a translation of Tao-Te-Ching? Even just a translation which is so weak, you would understand how the endless extended meaning makes it noblest language in the world while I have to type so many English words (grammatically verbose, could 4 times shorter in Chinese) to make you fools understand. What a tragedy and I feel sorry for the rest of human beings who are still using spelling languages. That's why you guys can't even get the edge of the point.

Just don't make stupid comments and posts like mindless anarchies anymore, don't show how feeble-minded you are because you only speak western spelling alphabets and please let this vote die cause it's totally retarded.
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.
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.


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
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!
Just too difficult to learn. Sure Millions of people speak it but do they actually love it after learning another language.
Well, actually Chinese isn't only cantonese and mandarin.
Whatever, every kind of Chinese sounds difficult to understand, even the easiest mandarin.
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)
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
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.


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


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.
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.
When chinese people are speaking, everybody 's irritated by the noise
It annoys me so much, and I think that we can all agree on that one
I'm a Chinese and I'm not a fan of mandarin
I prefer English
Too many dialects. Too many characters. Sounds chaotic & obnoxious. Terrible language.
I am Chinese and you are all wrong its not bad
This sucks it sounds really bad as well.

I come from China and I am saying this.

English is way better than this
As a Malaysian Chinese, I honestly don't care Mandarin is the worst, it is the world's common spoken language.
hardest lagnaguargte to learn


There is no competition. At all.
Its really hard to learn


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
