Top 10 Best Sounding Languages

The Top Ten

1 French

Definitely French. I speak Spanish and English and I'm studying French and the sound is amazing. I would love to marry a French girl

As a fluent Spanish (Madrid, Spain) and English (North Carolina, US) speaker there is no language that compares with French. I would trade both languages I know just to know French.

English: easy but not that much shades and make all voices appear to be high-pitched ; Spanish : nice to hear but Spanish peoples always speak so loud ; Italian : nice to hear but to much repetitive vowels sounds (as "a" "i" and "o") ; German : sounds nice and looks a lot to French in pronunciation but you better run if a German yell at you, it scares (a lot) ; French : various sounds with not that much repetitions, fluent and don't make a high-pitched voice to everybody.

I'd learn French at one point

2 Italian

It's got staccato, it's got bella figura and it's got a natural flow like now other language. It's a like a sunbaked, elegantly worn down version of Latin with sprinkles on top. It's got the warmth of Portuguese, the clarity of Spanish and the sophistication of French. If there is a heaven, they surely speak Italian over there.

This is modern Latin. It is a very poetic language and has some of the best literature. I am a native English and Spanish speaker. And I must say that Italian flows the way a language should. Only Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian come close. French sucks.

Italian is melodic, vowel heavy, and all around pleasing to the ear. Depending on the speaker there are times Italian sounds as if it is being sung there is a reason why it is the language of Opera. Which opera is in itself one of the greatest art forms the Italians have gifted humanity amongst others.

I amakea you aaahhh pizza- Italian accent

3 Spanish

I was always curious and eager about learning this beautiful language. It first appealed to me because I didn't understand it when I heard Spanish songs in the past. I speak French, English, Arabic, Armenian and Spanish (although I am still not fluent with Spanish yet) and I am from Canada. I must say that Spanish is music to my ears. It sounds great and is so romantic. Anyone who will hear a good song in Spanish will love the language. The love songs in Spanish will make you see how romantic the language is and make you love the language even more. I would easily trade my Armenian and Arabic just to be fluent in Spanish. It is an easy language to learn especially if you already know French because both languages have a similar grammar and words that are almost the same.

It is a beautiful language, easy to learn, widely spoken and Spanish people are very friendly. I would trade in my English language to speak Spanish.

Spanish sounds so cool when I hear people at stores and all they speak is Spanish. It makes me want to speak Spanish fluently. It's just an amazing language to take and very easy to learn. I would give anything to speak Spanish fluently.

Easy and sexy

4 Portuguese

Whether from Brazil (Brasil), Africa or, of course, Portugal- it's simply lulling to the ears, no matter where you're from. One of the Romance languages; its structure is great while its soft nasalized tones and "sh" endings are not only easy on the ear, but more than pleasing in their almost sung form. I'd vote it top 5 if not "numero um"!

Most melodic language in the world.

I think Portuguese is the most beautiful language in the world

All kinds of portuguese sounds very sweet and warm

5 Russian

Definitely the scariest white people.

I think this language sounds beautiful and is very sexy when women talk. The pronunciation I love the accent, the richness of the Russian language is impressive, not to mention the challenge of learning their alphabet as fun and interesting at the same time, it is a rather difficult language, especially for me, I'm Spanish and both languages seem very little, but the nice thing is also difficult. I recommend it.

Russian is very different from its Western European counterparts when it comes to studying it. The language itself is very flexible, with decent pronunciation. The richness of the vocabulary leaves a wonderful impression. And Russian poesy captivates immensely. The perception of it differs so much from, let's say, the poetry of Shakespeare in English or from French poetry. You feel some other kind of energy and liveliness of the language. It is hard to learn, but opens wonderful prospects. Reading Russian authors in the original language is way more enjoyable than in translation, because translations miss many aspects of the Russian language that are just untranslatable.

good!

6 Japanese

It flows perfectly, though the grammar is a bit difficult to grasp if English is your first language.

The Asians groups and singers are the best music all around the world in this moment

Japanese is one of my absolute favorite languages! It flows very beautifully and singing along with J-pop is not too hard because It's pronunciation, compared to Mandarin, Korean, Vietnamese, and the other East Asian languages, is pretty simple (plus it isn't tonal like many of the Asian languages tend to be). People think Japanese is whack because it's so hard to learn and understand and grammar rules and bla bla bla but when you look at it and the Romance languages it is much less complicated.

In my opinion, they speak clearly.

7 English

The way English is worded is just amazing. Because of the sheer amount of its vocabulary, you can express yourself in a sophisticated manner while being understood. There are a lot of words which have just slight differences amongst them in terms of the meanings, which adds to the richness of your expressions. There are a lot of authors who contributed to the richness of this pretty language, most notably Shakespeare, who furthered the development of early modern English. Also, there are tonnes of classic love songs written in this language. Personally, I think it is a language of love and romance. Also, it has developed over a long history, which makes the language itself reflect a rich heritage, which should be cherished and preserved for generations to come. Also, the culinary heritage which developed along with the language adds flavour to it. If you look at the historic architecture throughout England, you cannot stop but appreciate the perseverance and the artistic sense of the ...more

Personally, my favourite English accents are both American and British! Love them so much. The most mesmerizing thing about this language is that it has got so many varying/differently sounding accents. All of them, American and British in particular, sound so beautiful and familiar!

English is definitely my favorite language. I'm Brazilian of Portuguese ancestry. In this contemporary world of ours, language learning has become an easier task. I know all Western languages but am only fluent in English and Portuguese. Somehow I have this feeling that things said in English carry a stronger portion of reality. Do not ask me where I got that feeling from. I wouldn't be able to tell you concisely...

8 Ukrainian

Due to the lack of influence in the world is the only reason Ukraine is not number one. This language doesn't just sound beautiful, but also the articulator looks nice while speaking, which cannot be said about French.

Ukrainian has an amazing sound!

Ukrainian is most beautiful language! Ukrainian songs sound really good and they are very magnetic!

I belive that if Ukrainian was more well-known, people would be able to appreciate its beauty more and it would be in the top 5 if not number 1. just go listen to it, it's absolutely beautiful

9 Greek

It sounds like all the European languages (Russian, Italian, Spanish... ) together and has a very nice sound.

One of the most beautiful-sounding languages in the world.

I have been to many countries, especially in Europe and Asia. Greek is by far the nicest language. It sounds so cool

Greek sounds evenly balanced, it isn’t soft, but not rough; just a perfect melody of words.

10 Arabic

It's very beautiful not in a sweet way but it sounds strong and structured with with very unique letters and sounds. Arabic poetry is absolutely breathtaking

Sound great when men speaks arabic

It Is the most poetic classical rich language ever! And has the most divers sound system that isn't in any other language! In other words it is the queen that you will find out after learning it that many words we say is originally Arabic!

Amazing Islamic language! 😁😁

The Contenders

11 German

I speak English and French fluently, but German is probably the best language and always will be. German is a language for people who are realists, and are to-the-point. It is a language to be respected and is not a language for wimps. It is very complex and requires a complex mind, in order to master it. It also has the best sounding consonants. Basque is my second favorite; for it sounds very pretty and has cool consonants like Germans; the only con is that it is sloppy and tends to lack the analytical/organization that German has. (Latin would be third, but it is extinct and not used enough to qualify for this listing.)

It simply sounds great, even though I don't understand a word. It sounds somewhat barbaric and I like it.

German expresses what needs to be expressed through well structured word jumbles that are better than just about any other language for conveying a meaning or feeling. Contrary to popular American belief, German is not at all a harsh language, but a soft, refined one. It shouldn't sound like you're choking when you speak German.

Just fascinating.

12 Sinhalese

Not just Sinhalese sound beautiful, it's letters are the most rounded letters in the world. it is believed that Sinhalese letters became that beautiful due to the reason language is well civilized and organized. Some scientists doubt that Sinhalese has a different influence of some unknown source (aliens or any other) due to its uncommonness with compared to other languages. Unfortunately less amount of people use Sinhalese and it used as an official language only in Sri Lanka.

Extremely beautiful language. Words have powerful meanings. Sinhala people use less hand gestures and different kind of tones when they talk. Because they don't need them to express what they want to say in Sinhala. It sounds soft and civilized.

Being a native speaker what I adore about my mother tongue is the depth in it especially in literature, it's amazing how in some literary pieces one word with its multiple layers of meaning can give another total different layer of meaning to the whole text. And though it takes time to master the real beauty of the writing ability of it's letters with all the rounds and curves when written well with a good hand I presume it's obviously one of the most beautiful manuscripts ever

It is the most civilized language in the world.

13 Swedish

When Swedish people talk, it sounds like they're singing. Beautiful!

Sounds very sweet, like a mix between German and Italian, or like German without the harchness. Some people say that swedish is like German spoken under water. The most beautiful of the Germanic languages in my opinion.

I'm currently learning Swedish and love it. The language is easy to learn and clearly structured, but very pretty and melodic. I speak French and have found that Swedish is actually quite similar in some aspects. Overall a beautiful language and I've loved learning it.

You see, I have these 3 swedish friends right, and I think them and the country they come from (sweden, obviously) deserve to be 2nd on this list, not 12th but 1st should DEFINITELY be english xoxo thanks

14 Farsi

When you speak Farsi is very calm the tone isn't high

Beautiful language. If Arabic was sour or bitter, Persian would be sweet!

Arabic is sour! Farsi sounds like some Arab got boozed and smoked some water-pipe and then started speaking.

If its only about how languages sound then I should say yes it sounds good.
Ihim.. it sounds good and this fact is what gave this lang opportunity to evolve and become the body of the biggest tree of languages which they call indo European.. Without being harmonic and having the capability of making endless new words and the sentimental accuracy which this language gives it couldn't spread itself this wide without the point of sword. despite the fact of creative inherent of this language is clearly ascertainable by studying its literature one other point is that this lang was affected by its inhabitants and its environment that caused the fact that this lang can cover a wide range of concepts and it do not need to give a same exact concept several names or to invent several names for different conditions of a same object there for exactly like numeric system it can call an object in different conditions by using close to exact adjectives which is not the same for example in Semitic ...more

Everything in farsi sounds sweet and its really formal. there is a reason why most poets of the east choose farsi over arabic in the middle ages

15 Chinese

Chinese actually sounds pretty (I am talking about the ones from Beijing, not Taiwan) It is hard to learn the line structure but once you get the hang of it, pronouncing the word is too hard

Chinese is one of the most intelligent languages in the world. It has been developed for more than 5000 years. It is the most beautiful language in the world.

You will know the beauty of the Chinese language once you have learnt it. I really love the language when I started to learn Chinese since a few years ago.

That's my first language that I've spoken!

16 Finnish

Finnish is a beautiful language that deserves number one! It is exotic, unique, and wonderful in all aspects. You can look at other European languages and compare them all, but in Finnish they have a language of their own which is great. It's mesmerizing tone a words like lyrics make me think. I speak English and Spanish but nothing compares to Finnish. Not to mention J.R.R Tolkien based his language off Finnish. Makes you think doesn't it.

Finnish is 100% phonetic but yet very difficult to learn if you weren't raised with it like I was...and even I cannot deal with it sometimes lol. But as for a language to listen to, in songs especially, it really is one of the very easiest and nicest in my humble opinion

It is impossible to say that this isn't one of the most beautiful and exotic languages that exist today. It's uniqueness along with its beauty truly make it one of the finest there is.

Finnish is very beautiful language it's v hard sometimes but easy to pick up it's sounds really good

17 Dutch

I love dutch, definitely the middle of English and German, has latin, French influences like English, if the norman French didn't invade in 1066, English and dutch would share mutual intelligibility, very much like how Norway and Sweden are today, hence dutch and English are very closely related I speak both languages and some words and scentences need no translation at all

The Dutch language is interesting and easy to learn, because it looks a bit like the English.

Beautiful language and as an English-speaking person I have to say that Dutch is in my opinion a better-sounding language than English. I'd go as far as to say that it sounds better than French and Portuguese and is definitely the best Germanic language. - MagmaFox

Dutch is softer than German and has a lot of French and English influences. It’s a wonderful language!

Please listen to some Hungarian music on YouTube and you'll believe it to be one of the most beautiful languages in the World.

20 Hawaiian

Hawaiian sounds so beautiful it's light and soft and the songs sound good and like real music

True Hawaiian sound so soft and gentle and feels amazing to be able to speak it as we know Hawaiian language only has 1,000 native speakers and is endangered and should be brought back to life and fully restore

Hawaiian has only eight consonants, and every consonant in a word is followed by a vowel, so the words roll out of your mouth like a melodic stream -- perfect for singing!

Hawaiian is my #1 favorite language, and I have many favorites. It is so much more poetic than any other language, and the way it sounds is just so warm and beautiful.

Hawaiian is like- I don't know how to explain it- welcome. I dunno

21 Latin

Brilliant language! Flows well as well as sounding nice. I wish it were still spoken today!

Flexible, sophisticated and precise. It seems to me it must be the western language in which you can express ideas with the minimum number of sounds. Italian, Spanish, French are poor cousins. But, on the other hand, Latin is almost useless nowadays, so I would go with Spanish for pure practical reasons.

Laconic, deep, strict, flexible, beautifully structured.

22 Korean

I speak Hindi, Marathi, English, Urdu, little but of French and Italian and can sign ASL as well as Braille but out of all of them Korean is something I'm obsessed about! Been learning it for almost 3 years and it's amazing. I can write Korean too and it's so beautiful how the letter symbolise the shape of the tongue. I wish I knew a native Korean speaker so I could practise my skills with them. Never the less Korean is my all time favourite language and also K-pop is wonderful.

Have you ever heard the woman on the airports in Korea speak? Korean language is very beautiful in every way. It is phonetic and the Korean alphabet can literally pronounce any word, and spell out and able to pronounce any word in every languages of the World. Not all languages of the World is able to say that.

Best sounding Asian language for sure. Very harmonic when spoken softly and calmly but the tones easily can change to harsh and bitter when they are mad, aggravated, or super excited.

The beauty of the language opened my eyes ever since I started listening to K-pop.

Just because a language is not widely known doesn't mean it doesn't sound good.

I know a little norwegian. I think the pitch accent sounds great.

I find it a bit odd that Swedish is ranked above Norwegian. Both have a fluid, melodic nature to them, but Norwegian's pitch accent gives it a sing-song characteristic that puts it ahead of Swedish for me.

I fell in love with the way the language is written. Very beautiful

It's like a softer, sexier, more beautiful and flowing version of english,

25 Icelandic

Chances are you haven't heard Icelandic, given how small of a country Iceland is. It sounds basically like elvish from the lord of the rings movies (Tolkien based it on Icelandic). Plus it hasn't changed in 1000 years, so it sounds like Vikings. It has an elegant fluidity with a unique edge, and lots of th sounds

A very soft language it is, with a very calming tone I would say that it belongs in one of the most beautiful languages. The island is very calming too, and mixed with the language it is a sight to behold. I have been speaking Icelandic for 3 Years now, and it is amazing.

This is the most beautiful accent in the world, should be number 1

If everyone knew about Icelandic, it would absolutely be in the top ten. Listen to Heyr himnasmiðyour for persuasion.

Beautiful and tropical sounding language. Bougainville described Tahiti as an "earthly paradise" and the language sure shows it. Very similar to Hawaiian.

Sweetest sounding language in existence. Makes you travel to cool coasts of East Africa. Should be higher in the list

This is my favorite language. I love African languages and this one is just the best! I wish it was more widely-spoken because it is so awesome and underestimated. Until then, I have to stick to French.

It is the best language I love most, it sounds good and easy to learn it.

It just sounds romantic and friendly... Even if your angry it just sound friendly

A classic language (others are Greek, Latin and Sanskrit), nice and beautiful poetry. One of the most important languages through history. Persian was a lingua franca in the Ancient and Medieval times.

Farsi already is on this list, so don't waste your vote here

Whats the difference between Farsi and Persian? Farsi=Parsi and in english parsi is : PERSIAN
i'm iranian... the correct pronounciation of my language is PARSI wich arabs say Farsi because their language has not the sound "P" and english speakers call it Persian. I don't know why you seprated these twoes!

Very lyric language. Sounds like honey

I like this language more than Spanish, because it sounds like Italian and both sound more beautiful than Spanish and they are Latin languages. Even the Spanish is spoken widely and it sounds beautiful, I really don't like it.

33 Haitian Creole

90% of the language is based on the elegance of modern-French, and bares some influences from Portuguese, Spanish, Taíno, and West African languages; so it is not hard to see why it is such a beautiful language. Oh the romantic ballads of the beautiful troubadour music is absolutely breathtaking! It is also mutually intelligible with Antillean Creole and to some extent Louisiana Creole, which are both French-based in the hemisphere. I'm a native English speaker, who learnt French and Spanish and am picking up the Haitian Creole rather nicely.

It's a derivative of French, so of course its beautiful!

It sounds like slavic version of French. It's perfectly combined with music and VERY DIFFICULT to learn.

Easily the most graceful sounding accent in the world, and the type that makes us all crave an Irish lullaby before bedtime. Musical, poetic, emotional, and bound to bring a tear to your eyes when sung with the right voice. This is the most beautiful voice of all the heavens greatest.

Listening to a soft Irish song brings tears to the eyes while a harsher one will make your blood pump. It's beauty is impossible to describe.

37 Turkish

When I first took a class to learn Turkish (they call it Turkce) I couldn't wait for the next session. And the first time I learned a complete Sentence I was repeating it day and night. It is the language of soul and I think it's true that it's the first language that humans have spoken. It has very solid norm and rules and once you learn the pure Turkish you know that it's the language you want to speak.

Yes, Turkish is, for me, the most melodic language, because there is a vocal harmony...

Turkish is an ancient language refined over thousands of years. It is derived from a group of people who immigrated in waves from the Altay mountains of Asia to what is now Turkmenistan, and almost a thousand years ago, Turkey. Over the years, Turkish has adopted the best from many languages, from Arabic and Persian to French. But nothing is more beautiful than it's Turkic roots. As a Turkmen (from Turkmenistan), I have a lot of respect for the language of my Turkish brothers.

Its called the Italian of the East but I would say Italian is the Telugu of the west

Every word in Telugu ends with a vowel sound. It is the only eastern language which has this feature. It makes the language like a song. Italian is the only western language which also has this feature. That's why Telugu is called as Italian of the East.

Words in telugu are sweetest and script and everything are so perfect... Also old telugu is very close to sanskrit which is mother of all languages

Telugu is language of God. Great saints reached God through Telugu only after Sanskrit. Telugu is the most sweetest and musical language. After evaluation of Telugu only, other Dravidian languages were born. It is very clear that Telugu is the only one oldest language on this earth after Sanskrit and Prakrit languages.

This and Irish Gaeilge are definitely languages of peace. I haven't heard an angry song written in these tongues. There is a lot of art and history as well. Though they may not be needed most places like English is they are still something worth keeping alive. Don't let anybody tell you different.

Scottish Gaelic is the purest language to speak, no doubt about it. The way it rolls off the tongue and feels as you speak it is more flowing and tangible than any other language I've ever spoken.

Such an interesting sound. I am learning it now. So under appreciated.

Sounds wonderful and sweet. It is considered to be language of gods and its alphabetic symbols are universal and derive from the nuture around us. Most of the languages are derived from sanskrit.

It's the mother of all languages, the most powerful, the most sweetest all the body parts get energized on listening it.

Perfect sounding

45 Filipino

For me the best sounding dialect has to be the ones from the mountainous, highlands. As I speak it myself, it is very masculine and strong. Unlike the ones from the lowlands where they tend to widen their mouth when speaking and thus sounding feminine. Also indigenous language with very few adopted words is also very harmonious to the ear. Unlike that heavily polluted taga-ilog or tagalog. It's very sad to hear modern Filipino dialect as it has lost it's sophisticated or intricate words in exchange for USA English. And the saddest of all is how the new generation has viewed their parents language as inferior to English, eager to pride themselves ounce they acquire it. As bad as it is, it's even worst to know that half of the earths 7000 language/dialect is bound to vanish in 2050. In a rate of 1 language becoming extinct every week.

It's really a diverse language getting it's roots and "inspiration" from the country's first inhabitants, Spanish conquistadors, Chinese merchants, Americans, Arabs, Indians, Japanese and a lot more. The language is really beautiful yet still unknown to many. Several words in Filipino really have deep meanings yet no English translation (kilig- that romantic feeling like butterflies in your stomach). It sounds really elegant and magnificent.

It shares the sound of Spanish, English, and other Asian languages.

It's a beautiful language that express so much love without being notice until you fall for it

I've heard Albanian last week for the first time and... WOW! I fell immediately in love with it! It is very underrated in my opinion, because it has everything that a perfect language is supposed to have!

Sounds like a mix of English with a Romance language. It has the English r for example, also th like in this or think. It's very pleasant.
