The Top Ten
I have studied numerous other languages including, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Croatian, Hungarian, and Chinese, and I have looked rather thoroughly into Greek, Welsh, Dutch, Mongolian, Hebrew, and even Cherokee in search of a language I wanted to learn. I have spent the last two years searching out one or more of these languages daily, and going about this with as little prejudice as it is possible for an English speaker to have; taking with me the attitude that English is far from perfect, having many irritating blemishes, such as continually broken rules, words that aren't spelled the way they are pronounced, redundant characters, words with too many meanings/usages, etc. All that being said, I have come back around to the notion that English is the finest language I have found, and am likely to find.
I don't say that snobbishly, I take no pride in it at all. I say it out of careful consideration in regard to two factors: 1) the simplicity and relative freedom of its ...more
It's just simple and easy. Yes the rules are dumb, but I say it's easy because it's everywhere. If you go on the internet, a lot of it is in English. Even if you use other languages, there's no way you haven't picked up on a lot of English just by using the internet. I mean, hell, you're reading this comment. There are probably tons of foreign readers reading this. A lot of you probably just picked up on some English naturally! Good job!
Irregulars suck but we're all exposed to lots and lots and lots of English to not pick up on it. You can go to remote villages in impoverished and illiterate countries, and many will understand basic English like, "Hi! ", "How are you! ", "Good! ", and "Thank You! "
None of the words in English use tones or accents like Chinese. They don't force you to move your voice in a certain way when you talk. They have mostly been creative with the words and as for the ones that sound the same you can easily find the meaning of by using the context of the sentence. Also, there are tenses. In Chinese the way you have to give the message "I went to the store" without any context, you would have to say "yesterday I go to the store" or "I go to the store a few hours ago." In English you don't even have to use a time. Plus, the written language is easy to read and write. It is also very fast. I don't know how people read those characters, or even write them. They have to memorize each and every character how to read and right them. It is a very easy and understandable language. I rest my case.
It's the international language which is understands by anyone of any region. - elias78V 150 Comments
French is the best language in the world! It is a very polite languge and people who think that French is a bad language are silly. The French language is obviously by far the best language so just admit it!
Bonjour, Minseurs, Madames and Madamoselles!
French is GREAT!
Comment ca va?
French is the best language! Much better than all the languages they listed anyway!
A language spoken on all continents of the world. French is a chick magnet and is the language of romance after all.V 55 Comments
It sort of goes with the flow, and like the accent is so good.
Spanish is best
You have to say first that the Spanish language is originally from Spain (Europe), because so much people don't known that Spain is on Europe, and then also most people from South America and central america speak it.
One of the few languages you can speak without feeling embarrassed. It is a very poetic languageV 47 Comments
Russian all the way!
I can compare Latin, Greek, Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Russian and English. English has the biggest vocabulary, but unfortunately including too many homonyms. Being spoken worldwide, English is also the fastest in coming up with new terms and notions, which often remain unknown in other European languages until years, sometimes decades, later. A practical advantage of English is its simple grammar, but that also limits possibilities of expressing subtle aspects. Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch and even German also have simplified grammars, albeit not as simplistic as English.
Latin and Greek are beautifully structured and both well suited to poetry and science, but Latin seems a little cleaner. Roman poets loved decoration as much as Greek poets, but the Latin language can also express the essence of things with stoic and efficient purity.
Grammatically Russian is structured similar to Latin and Greek, taking all the advantages from that. Of those modern ...more
Best language to express any specific feeling situation it's deep and very precise language... Maybe that's why so much writers and poets used this language for their masterpieces

I love Japanese because Japanese is part of Chinese!
I love Japanese language, I speak both Spanish and English and after speaking these languages for all your life you eventually get tired. I started watching anime a few months ago and the moment I hear it, I loved the language.
I think This language is very beautiful because it flows in a sweet way this language sounds so pretty because no harsh sounds are in this beautiful language because people get to roll their tongue very well as it's a smooth language to listen to sounds very cute and very smooth and beautiful, cute, smooth, colorful Japanese people when they talk it's sounds like they are singing while they talk very soft I would like to listen to this language forever because I've heard Japanese it sounds very beautiful, romantic, cute, pleasant, colorful, smooth and soft spoken language for me I love this language sounds so beautiful and cute and colorful and peaceful and smooth loves this beautiful language Javanese is the worst sounding language doesn't sound beautiful and romantic or anything but Japanese sounds very beautiful and peaceful but I'm hoping for a video called what Japanese sounds like to foreigners if I see it I'm gonna react to it because the man asks the strangers what they think ...more

Have you guys ever listened to nasheed? Have you guys ever read portions of the Quran? I am not a Muslim myself, but I start trembling and crying every time I do. The words sound so beautiful when recited, and the complexity in its meaning is simply beyond me. Have you guys ever visited an Arab or Muslim country? These people respect their mothers. These people are honest with their employees. These people cherish their neighbors. These people personally welcome tourists as their guests. These people genuinely care for one another. These people are so smart, so kind, so content... they're simply enlightened.
And our society? We disrespect our parents, our teachers, our women, our neighbors, and our coworkers. We are far too busy to care for the single mother or the homeless man or the orphan child. We don't even have enough modesty to respect ourselves. I don't know why but in these people I see pure light. And I think their language and their culture are one and the same - ...more
I love the sound of it, very poetic
This language is interesting - ElSherlock

Sexiest and most musical language in the world. Absolute beauty, just like the country. Italian is like a song. Written by a French dude, Italian is way better than French.
I know I shouldn't talk as I am Italian, but always living abroad I think a can give a personal opinion. I really love French and Spanish, I like English (British), Russian and actually Arabic too, a little. But I must say, Italian is the best. Its sound is amazing, is romantic, fluent, joyful, so poetical and "classical" (also because it comes from Latin). Its meanings are wonderful, with plenty of different shades and synonyms. There is no language like this, or at least for me.
Cool compound language
A language which is simply a beautiful music to hear... So rythmic and romantic to listen and to speak, a language which has been the founder of most of languages in the world.V 26 Comments
There is only one language I know perfect for science on this planet. And it is german. I am studying physics in America. And even the war is over for years and english overtook the place for most important language in science our professor still has told us to study this language, to get better in physic. And I did, and what did I learn? I firstly understood the relativity Therory in a whole new way of course. But I was able to get it much better. Still it is hard to get, because I wasn't able to get all of it, but I am moving on...
What I've learned is, that german is a language you shoul learn at least for science, because it has developed very important stuff, we still need today.
And if you are not that kind, it is still worth learning, because English lost so much through invasions of its heritage, you'll see by learning german. So learning is easy after a while, but the start is hard, because you are prejudiced by bad rumors of this language.
Not to forget, I am just ...more
If only they didn't love to put so many verbs at the end of clauses and sentences, it might just be perfect.
Only through the complexity of this language, many developments have occured like "The relativity Theorie" and a lot of other modern stuff. But this is only a sidewalk of this language. It sounds hard to most non native speakers because the language is in relation to "Hitler" and it will stay there for a long time, I guess. Whatever language you like to learn, a language is always the best thing you can do for your brain. So as a native english speaker, german is very related and should not be banished because of history, like nearly 70 years ago.
German for me is the most creative flexible and also precise Language. Not only for Science and Research, but also for literature, music and culture. It is so rich of words and expressions and you can make up new words by combining existing ones. I like the Sound and melody of the language. It sounds very educated and represents the modern Germany with its modern, elegant, efficient and also fun orientated Lifestyle. As the two biggest European Parties are celebrated there. Oktoberfest in Munich and Carneval in Cologne. The Language fits to with it and to have great Fun!V 26 Comments
Sinhalese better known as Sinhala is an Indo-Aryan Language which is Spoken by Sinhalese, Though I am not a Sinhalese I knew it from my childhood, I hope its one of the Best Languages in the World, A Person who can Pronounce Sinhala well undoubtedly will able to Pronounce any Language in the World in a native manner (or closer) that's the amazing fact
Sinhalese or Sinhala is one of the very few melodious languages in the World, Sinhalese no doubt becomes one of the most fertile and Greatest languages in the World as well.
Sinhala is considered as the most beautiful accent & most beautiful alphabet that a language has on earth. It has evolved for over 1000 years and so is well designed today. But, unfortunately, it's spoken by a very small no. Of people around the world and majority in Sri Lanka, also among the top 30 dying languages due to decreasing use of it due to lack of natural evolution and lack of availability of reference for higher studies and research. But, it still is the most beautiful language on earth.
It is also known as "Hela" meaning the language of the 'helios" or the Sun. Scientists believe that the language may have been bought to earth by aliens. Therefore Sinhala has been used to communicate the friendliness and humanity of mankind on board spaceships sent to discover extraterrestrial life.V 362 Comments
Portuguese from Europe and Africa actually sounds better in my opinion. Brazilian is too hammy and they open their mouths to wide and is highly overrated. Brazilian Portuguese is nothing special. European is more formal, elegant, and calm and African has a beautiful mix of creole language.
The Portuguese from Europe and Africa sucks, but the Portuguese from Brazil is awesome. It sounds totally different than any other kind of Portuguese spoken worldwide. It is consequence of the influence that the Brazilian Portuguese received of a lot of other languages, such as Italian, Spanish, German, languages of Brazilian Indians, and languages brought from Africa by black slaves. It is what made the Portuguese from Brazil be the beautiful language that it is nowadays.
Portuguese from Portugal, it's beautiful
Portuguese is one of the most complicated languages in the world, it is quite complete, and beautiful.V 24 Comments
I am a Thamizh. I know fluently to read, write and speak in Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi, and have knowledge in Sanskrit grammar also. In my opinion I see Thamizh is "THE BEST". Not because I am a Thamizh but in no other languages I knew the words are having their roots and correct reasons in them. And those words' roots you can find in Thamizh. And the words not only just have correct reasons but when put together in sentences "ITS SWEET". I think this sweetness is because of its "SIMPLENESS".
Only 30% of ancient Tamil literature is recovered... Other older literary proofs got destroyed in natural calamities... In 30% of the existing content we have such a rich content... Now you can think about the greatness in this language... Tamil (TAMIZH) THE BEST
I really love Tamil poems. They describe emotions into many cascading layers effortlessly. I love the way Tamil poem's world selection. Let it be the hell or heaven, one will feel it while reading. I cried many a times. It brought Che Kuvera in me. I've got the kick of 1000 bottles of wine at a same time. Very happy to see it, topping the list of Indian languages. Today I know there are 9 more beautiful languages I can't just miss..

I am proud to be tamil
Chinese is one of the most successful languages in the world. It has a proud history (not only 5000 years, according to historical records, 20 thousand years ago) and an amazing number of users. Its accumulated cultural background can be comparable with any other language in the world, and even surpass many. Its beauty makes millions of people intoxicated. It is the sediment of wisdom of millions of people. The popularity of the Chinese world is not optimistic now, mainly because China's national conditions are still developing, and China is also very nervous about its own governance. It is not open enough, but it is working hard!
Chinese is the most common language in the world, even more than english or spanish. It is beautiful, please stop being so eurocentric. Look outside of the white people for once.
Chinese is the most beautiful language in the world, especially traditional Chinese, it consists of China's 5, 000 years of history. Either in its writing or speaking, it's perfectly amazing.
I’m Canadian and I love Chinese culture. Amazing history!V 34 Comments
It is a very nice languages to learn. I am mostly proud to be learning it well.

It's such an interesting and unique language.V 2 Comments
It can be treated as the worlds sweetest language... Because already it has a title "Italian of the east".. Most of the words in Telugu ends with vowels which brought the language sweetness... Once you listen the language you can will believe that even honey is also somewhat lesser in sweetness of the Telugu... Its simply rocks... And music in this particular language is simply super... This language had preserved the language game called 'asthavadanam' which has extinguished in the other Indian languages except Sanskrit...
Telugu has been voted as the 2nd best script in the world by International Alphabet Association.
Eager to learn Telugu.. Its nice to hear this language and even to learn... I can say this, as one of the sweetest classical languages I heard. It is even called as "Italian of east"...
Sweetest language in the south, even ancient Tamil poets praised telugu. Foreigners refer to telugu as the Italien of the east, and was even regarded to have status of the indian natonal language. I do not know why this is only the eleventh best language.V 212 Comments
One of the most beautiful sounding languages! It sounds so soft, the words sound beautiful and I basically love the way it sounds. Also I think that if you will learn persian you will not speak it with the accent of your native language. (i'm not persian by the way).
I'm agree with you
Persian is in number 1 or 2 or at least 3 on my opinion. The reason that It isn't on number 1 is the people don't know anything about it.
Very good language
Come on! 19 is not for Persian! Top 10 is for Persian because Persian has many quotes and you can make many beautiful sentence only with this language!
The Persian language just flows beautifully, it is a very poetic and sweet dialect which never sounds harsh nor brash. It's charming, soft, and lyrical. Just gorgeous.V 65 Comments
Ukrainian language sometimes like Italian, so nice melodic and soft
Very melodic language, just try listening to it!
Ukrainian songs are well known in all former Soviet republics because of their beauty. When Ukrainians speak their language abroad, many people stop to listen to it and ask: what language is this?

Greek should be at least at top 10. It's the Big Mama of ALL European Languages. It is a very interesting, and one of the few surviving Ancient Languages. For a thousand years it was the most important language in tge world, everyone should speak Greek, even Jesus Christ knew Greek. It is simply Majestic...
Seriously? Greek should be on number 1...
Why is Greek so low in that list? Almost every language has many greek words in it.. We owe the greek language the existense of all of our languages..
As a Greek I will give you one tip: Once you learn to pronounce Malakas right you technically know everything! - JohnaloveV 25 Comments
Latin has been a dead language for a thousand years, yet people still speak it. That must prove the strength and beauty of the Latin language.
This should be #1 because without it would we not have languages such as Italian and Spanish, plus this language was supposed to be the superior language, not English. It is also a very poetic language.
I speak Latin and it is by far 100% awesome! Fun to learn and it makes you look very smart. It also gives an understanding of Roman life. Honestly, it should be in the top 10
Latin may be a dead language, but it is what structured languages such as English and French. Everyone who learns Latin learns it to accept its beauty.V 6 Comments
So beautiful and some great names! - xXEnglishGothXx
Very easy language to learn. You literally pronounce the word from how it looks. No weird rules like English.
Best language easy to learn as well as speaking
I think it's deserve to be at the first position
The most nicest sounding language you can listen to.
I'm learning Norwegian and it has become my favorite language already. It might sound like someone is passing gas when you speak it, but that's what makes it fun. It's easy to remember and fast to learn. I give it 5 stars!
Since I am Swedish it is really easy to learn and speak this language and I just started and I know probably half of the all words.
Danish spoken with a Swedish accent. I can speak quite a bit of Norwegian and it's a very easy and simple language, especially if you know another scandinavian language already. If you want to learn a scandinavian language, learn Norwegian. You'll be able to understand most Danish and Swedish and even some Icelandic because of how mutually intelligible it is with the other languages! The grammar is almost identical to English besides the V2 rule, which is very easy to grasp! - SenpaiNoticeMeV 6 Comments

Best language easy to talk better than any other language
Don't forget Hindi guys as all other regional languages of Indian states are derived from Sanskrit and Hindi
Hindi is beautiful!
Best language, with great pronouns and many meaning of one word, like in English... You can sing really great song in Hindi, which can be feel in heart, and its easy to speak as an second language, if you can speak neighbour language of Hindi, like Nepali, Bhojpuri, Bengali etc... I am not botn in India so my mother tongue is not Hindi, but I can still speak Hindi, I learn Hindi in 2-3 years. Just by watching movies, etc. So if you live near by India than its easy for you to learn English. And I think its kind of easy for others too. You can feel the words that is in Hindi... This language has really good feeling to your emotion. You can easily make jokes, story, etc in Hindi... Because it is different but the best language to learn and speak. My native language is Nepali, but I think Hindi is also a great language to speak. - Krishnadahal1999V 66 Comments

Simply a beautiful language! No comparison. In it you find calmness, and it's enjoyable listening to it when indigenous swahili people speak. The very best language to learn! Kiswahili, a melodic language!
Not the best language, but it's my language and that's all that matters.
The tone of it is far more rough than the other languages but being an ancient and old language can make the beauty of it more, and I like it by the way...
How is this so far down! - turtwigV 4 Comments
Dutch is a very beautiful language and it's sad that people are now forgetting about this language and using English instead.
Dutch and English are sister languages, so it uses some English words
The language most closely related to English, almost exactly the same grammar. the only thing that is difficult is the pronunciation, but still very difficult for people who aren't Dutch.
How to write in Dutch:
1. Bang head on keyboard.
2. If you can read it erase and start over.
3. Press space. Repeat.
I'm just playing. I just love tryin to pronounce this stuff.

Every language is beautiful, but I feel Punjabi contains most precious literature (Gurmukhi) than any other language. Phenomenal vocabulary of sweet and respectful words. The pure accent of Punjabi esteems the speaker. It's having all alphabets to different sounds. For me, PUNJABI is no. 1, supreme language.
world's best sweetest language
no language can beat punjabi
Yes I agree with it because I found Punjabi is the most comprehensive and beautiful language of the world. It had single worded names of most things. Punjabi is not only language it is culture and way of simple life. It has been hijacked or victim of linguistic genocide in India and Pakistan.
