Chinese language sounds like a baby trying speak but still can't so whatever language comes out in the baby's mouth that sounds like Chinese language

Well I would say that Mandarin is an EXTREMELY hard language to learn when you are just getting started if you speak English, with all the strokes and tones and REALLY awkward sounds, but once you get the hang of it all, it's actually not all that bad. It can even be quite fun learning new vocabulary. Also one particular character can be used in multiple different words (if you are learning Chinese you know what I mean), which is unique, despite the chi chong gong

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.

It just sounds so horrible to the ear! There was a large language school survey here trying to promote the Chinese language and wondering why they had only a small number of students... The results were clear. People just don't like it!

Yet the same survey revealed the Chinese language students there to study thought the European languages' to be much nicer than their own!... So work that one out! - Gilliguts

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.

Just too difficult to learn. Sure Millions of people speak it but do they actually love it after learning another language.

The fact that illiteracy is so high proves that Chinese, the written form, is a terrible language.
Chinese is a tonal language which is also not a good idea. But the really difficult thing for the Chinese language is that China is ruled by a communist dictatorship and the communist have held the culture back from advancing in much the same way the previous imperial rulers did. The rulers of China have been afraid of progress since the time of the consolidation of the three kingdoms period.

Definitely Chinese. The Chinese language is just so repulsive. It's not that it's hard to learn, the intonations and pitches and even characters are fairly easy to learn. I can actually speak Chinese, unlike some other people who can't and therefore don't deserve to judge the language. If I said Chinese is a bad language because it's hard to speak, that would mean that I'm a loser who didn't have the determination to learn Chinese and gave up but I'm not saying that. I'm saying Chinese is the world's worst language because it sounds plain awful. All of its dialects {especially the Shanghai dialect} sound horrible, there are no dialects that sound good at all. I also find the Chinese culture highly repulsive and sometime outright barbaric! The Chinese have awful manners. If you don't believe me, why don't you check out a story about what Chinese tourists did to Disneyland in Taiwan. It's a good story, trust me.

I am for good spoken Mandarin and written Chinese. As a Chinese I am proud to be one. My daughter is taking both higher Chinese and standard Chinese in school in Singapore where not many are able to cope with this second language. We are considered lucky to be able to cope well with it.

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.

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. - SearchingForSunsets

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.

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

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)

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. - Kaotoo

When chinese people are speaking, everybody 's irritated by the noise

It's not that bad. I am from Hong Kong and I am not proud of Mainland China tourists, bug the language itself is not that bad when you understand it.

The sound a word makes has no connection with the character used to represent it and as such there is no way of knowing the character for a spoken word of vice versa without explicitly being told or searching for it. Also the number of characters that are required for fluency is insanely high relative to languages that use an alphabet.

Chinese really is horrible, because people have to learn millions of characters, rather than just 26 alphabets. It wastes a lot of students time, and if we just stop learning this language, it was save many students.

My Chinese friend told me when you use Chinese language express one of your opinions you also express many opinions that you don't want to express they said this is the worse language

What kind of language makes it so you can only learn to read if you already know how to read, or makes a spoken word's definition dependent on the inflection? It's for masochists.

Being a Chinese, after reading all the comments I have to say that although Chinese really sounds annoying, but except the accent Chinese can't be that a bad language.

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 - maddyparrot22
