Top 10 Best Sounding Languages

The Top Ten

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

So you like how it sounds, and want to marry one of their women? Isn't that kinda jumping to conclusions, and it doesn't make sense? Have you ever met a French girl? Do you just want to marry one so you can speak the language more often? I don't understand. I used to take French, it's a great language, but it pales compared to Italian or even German. German words are hilarious. - MattAffterburner

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.

It's a beautiful language and sounds elegant the minute you hear it. The accent is also very nice to hear when you mix it with it's native language. Still deciding whether I should take French, Spanish, or Russian due to the beauty of each language.

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.

I've been learning this language for most of my life and I'm so grateful to be conversational with it.

Venezuelan, Rioplatense and Mexican accents are like music to my ears. I'm not a fan of standard European Spanish, though (Andalusians rule), mostly because they tend to sound like they're angry for some reason, but also because of their "lisp".

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.

At the moment of writing this, Italian and French were at the top of this list which is great because those two were the last candidates I had to chose for my next language. French sounds good and is very useful because it is the 2nd most spoken second language. You open up a lot of options if you are a traveler. Regardless of all this, I picked Italian because the energetic and romantic flow of it was too hard to resist. I traveled Europe for 2 months and you just have to listen to a group of Italians for 5 minutes and you'll want to join in! I speak English and Spanish, I can afford to pick a "less useful" language!

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

If you speak portuguese, you are a lucky and happy person for sure, the most poetic language worldwide.

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.

Can sound pretty and sweet but also angry depending on what style you're going for

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

A nice sounding language where so much can be added through rhythm or word order and there isn't one standard version of the accent, everyone that learns it adds to the language with their own individual language quirks

I feel like the best part about the English language isn't that it's so widely spoken, but rather BECAUSE it's so widely spoken that there are tons of different accents among completely native speaking English countries, including very powerful, utterly anglophone nations like American(all of it's dialects), Australian and British. It's because of this diversity that native speakers are able to clearly understand what a non-native speaker is saying through their accent. Obviously sometimes it's harder with certain accents like Scottish, or really thick ones, but opposed to other languages where you can often not even understand what they're saying because of their accent, English speakers can generally understand what you're saying, and if they can't tell exactly what you said, they can usually figure it out from context. Worst case scenario you'll have to repeat it slower if your accent is too thick. accents can be a big barrier for lots of languages, but in English, accent is ...more

Best Germanic language! Not guttural and rough like German and Danish. It's also very diverse in that there are so many accents: Irish, Scottish, Cockney, Jamaican, Southern American, Kiwi... Personally, I could listen to an Irishman speak all day.

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!

Arabic language is the one chosen by glorious God to be the language of the the holy Quran, best book and spoken by the best God's messenger prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, it must be the best language ever.

Russian

Definitely the scariest white people.

I think this is a good language to learn, it's the 5th most spoken with both native and non-native speakers and spoken all over the former soviet union, so I think speaking it would be very useful, I want to study abroad for the language as a 15 year old autistic person when the quarantine is over.

Russian is a creative language. It's flexibility with sentence structures is amazing, and just all around sounds beautiful. Learning Russian you will appreciate the culture, language and literature a lot more.

It sounds so rough yet so romantic. When it's used in songs, whether in a blunt tone or soft one, it sounds beautiful. I really can't choose between French, Spanish, or Russian to take in HS.

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

It sounds like poem. You love to listen to it without getting tired.

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

We can pronounce any word in any language. Because, We have many letters in the Sinhalese alphabet
To pronounce any sound of the whole world. It is not in any languages in the whole world. So many peoples can't pronounce like Sinhalese peoples.
I do not believe & Sinhalese language originally came from North India with North Indian people. Because, we have more than 35,000 years of history for human life in Sri Lanka. We have very proud & brave history. More Indian peoples know it & they are still reminding it.

The Contenders

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!

Although some see Ukrainian as a sister language to Russian, the language on its own is absolutely poetic. I could listen to Ukrainian speakers for hours.

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 is a fascinating language. The alphabet on its own is incredible enough, and looks amazing handwritten! The spoken language is amazing as well.

Dutch

Dutch make my heart happy. Listening to dutch gives me the feeling of listening to english but without having to understand anything. Dutch is a comforting language, and makes the voice sound amazing!

Propbably being a bit biased but I like dutch some may think it sounds harsh but it also is very interesting and I don't get bored of constantly hearing my family members speaking it unlike english

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.

German

I like how it sounds. I found it fun to learn as my second language

German doesn't deserve any bad rep for being harsh. German is a smart language, with simple vocabulary and plenty of compound words to make it easier to learn, if I could describe it in any word, it would be "clean". German is an amazing language, and German speaking countries are so beautiful as well!

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.

Scottish Gaelic

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 like the life of the party on one end of the scale, and poet laureate on the other.

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.

Such a lovely sing song tone, yet still strong. Out of all the languages I have experience with Swedish is my favorite to speak.

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.

Most beautiful and profound language
Definitely the best language to me, hands down

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.

Catalan

I love the sound of Catalan. I just do.

Sounds like a mix of Romance languages

It's loverly and it has a special place in my heart

Better than Spanish, because I think it's more beautiful

Bengali

Its just beautiful and the bengali national anthem sounds really good compared to most anthems

It is a language which deserves to be at top 5. Modern Bengali sounds absolutely rubbish, but pure Bengali sounds so clear and good. You'll fall in love with someone after you've heard the sweet Bengali words from them. Absolutely brilliant language.

We had to fight a lot to get the right to speak this language. Many of the young generations laid their lives down so we can speak the language we love, Bengali. Plus, it sounds sweet, too, even with different dialects.

Bengali is a very sweet language. Bengali is my first language and I'm proud to speak Bengali. Its softness seems like music to your ears.

Korean

I can speak hindi, marathi, English, French and now I am learning Korean. This language is just so cute, polite and nice to hear. I really find their tone of speaking so amazing. It just makes it more attractive. French is polite too but it's not cute and I "personally" feel it's more formal.

I already speak many languages like Hindi, Marathi, English, sanskrit besides all those languages I like Korean. All those language which I use to speak are easy and sounds good. But I always wanted to learn the language which is not spoken india much. So I have been finding the best language for me so it toke some time and the language is Korean, why?, because I like its soft ness and how it sounds.

I'm surprised this language is not ranked much higher. Maybe in a true poll it would be different?
I won't bring up the influence the pop culture this nation has produced - someone else can do that or you can just turn on the T.V. lol. South Korea is polarizing, it's controversial and sometimes downright ridiculous. I haven't realized the full potential of the country until I actually decided to make a trip and stay there for a few months while working different jobs. I truly recommend it to people to choose South Korea as their top priority if you ever want to plan an Asian trip. Being born and raised in Los Angeles, I thought we had it all.. My perspectives towards Asia had changed 180 once I visited South Korea (Japan as well). I don't think USA or any other country can no longer create false stereotypes out of insecurity - they're a very strong country with the entire population just ingrained with grit, hard work and progression.

I'm going on tangent here but... the ...more

It's so cute!
It's not most popular language but it's probably the most beautiful language ever

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.

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 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

I know English, Spanish, German, Finnish, French and Norwegian, and I think Finnish is definitely the most beautiful. JRR. Tolkien made Elvish sound like Finnish because he thought it was beautiful.

Celtic

Breton is the superior celtic language it is the most expressive language and the world and can only be spoken by intelligent people.

Celtic is not a language. It's a language family. If you're so unknowledgeable, don't use linguistic terms at all.

I'm sure this meant something different, as celtic is a language family. I personally really enjoy the celtic language Irish, also known as Gaeilge.

There actually was a proto-celtic language that was spoken a few thousand years

Haitian Creole

An underrated language, with such an interesting culture to go with it! Haitian Creole is so melodic!

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!

Gwo twou sen fon

Romanian

Romanian has the beauty of Italian and a touch of russian to it. Gorgeous.

Very lyric language. Sounds like honey

It is such a beautiful language, but it is so rare hidden, unknown almost. It is one of those languages where if you heard it in public by another person, you get excited and almost want to go talk to them. I speak Spanish, Romanian, German, Indonesian, and Japanese and haven't that feeling with any one of them before, It definitely deserves a higher spot

I've learned Italian, French, Spanish, English, Japanese, Chinese and Portuguese but this by far is my favorite language. Just speaking it makes you feel like your French, Italian, and Spanish in one! It is such a beautiful language, even when it is spoken by a male and female. IT can rough and soft, cool and cute, best language in the world :)!

Tamil

Feeling very upset to see Tamil in 35th rank... as per record Tamil is the most oldest language among all these languages... No language can come even close to Tamil pronunciation, Detailed and to be honest mother of all languages...

Tamil is the most beautiful & classical language with more than 5000 Years of history. Tamil is the only language survived till date & spoken by nearly 100 million people. Soft & mild pronounced Tamil liked by even other language people & mother of many languages in the world.

It is undoubtedly one of the ancient and the most beautiful language in the world.

the most beautiful language ever
you need to listen to tamil songs you stress will go away almost immediately

Polish

Polish is a very beautiful rhythmic language. Poetry and prose written in the language that Chopin spoke captivates the reader with its abundance of linguistic possibilities in conveying thoughts. This is why so many Polish authors and poets have won the Nobel Prize for literature through out the years. Spoken Polish is extremely elegant and light to the ear. The vocabulary is phenomenal and the selection of descriptive words is overwhelming. Kudos to the Poles for their amazing achievement of incorporating borrowed words into Polish from English and historically in the past from French, German and Italian, all the while keeping their own language clean of foreign words that already have Polish equivalents to express thought. This is a sign of a healthy, living language which protects its historical roots and one that will flourish and grow for years to come. Since Poland is a rising star amongst the world economies and a fast approaching European power house , it would be advisable ...more

Unusual sounding slavic language. It is distinct in its sound and very pleasurable to listen to.

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

Russian with the whipped cream topping left intact. A chocolate coating added. Sugar sprinkles, little candles on top, paper streamers, even fireworks! A language like a ridiculous eight-tier wedding cake, prepared in a well-stocked kitchen by an impassionate cook on his last day before retirement. Who knew exactly what he did, why he did it and that he'd saved for last a most improbable treat indeed.

Punjabi

Punjabi is a beautiful language. It has a way of flowing that no words can be used to describe it.

Punjabi flows beautifully, deserves to be in the top 15 at least. Had tones of sweetness with a touch of roughness. This is a language that can convey emotion uniquely.

Punjabi language deserve place in top ten

Punjabi deserve to be in top ten. It has a complete grammar and linguistically correct.

Telugu

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

The best language in terms of script and pronunciation. The script beautiful because of every letter looks a like a circle or a curve and the pronunciation is more like melody tone.

Probably most beautifully audible language in the world.

You can easily notice this when listening same song in many Indian languages. This is because it's the only language where south & north Indian languages meet to form new language with all beautiful words from each. (It borrows all beauty from all Indian languages needless to say that is the advantage of telugu)

This is the only language as far as I know, "what you read is what you speaks or pronounce".

Not the case in many languages (European and Indian and Asian) for ex: in English Tsunami => read as Sunami... (psychology, know) something like that.

There is no confusion in writing and reading in this language.

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.

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.

This beautiful language reflects the magnificence and the power of the civilization that spoke it!

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.

Just a very nice language like you can't even compare it to other languages its unique and just amazing! Would love to learn it!

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

You can't say that "i have no words to describe my feelings" in turkish cause there is and more

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.

Every consonant is followed by a vowel, so it flows like a melodic stream out of your mouth, perfect for singing!

Swahili

A language close to my heart, the fact you can tell if something is an animal, plant, alive, non living, abstract singular or plural from the first syllable is amazing

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.

Urdu

Should be in the top 5 at least. It's a mesmerising language

Amazing sounding language. It is a mixture of turkish, arabic, and Persian languages

Urdu is the best and most
Importantly it is a language of love.

Urdu is known as the language of love. It has a beauty and softness that can not be replicated.

Tahitian

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

Basque

A very ancient and Mysterious language spoken in north Spain and maybe the oldest of Europe

As basque myself, I'm proud of knowing this particular language, which I consider a treasure. Learning the language shows particularities about how old it is, comparing roots, expressions and the sentence construction. For example: "aizkor" means "axe", knowing the root "aiz" (or aitz, atz, az…) means "stone", or "rock". An axe was a stone with a handle once!

It also shares multiple words with its flatmate language, the Spanish, due the lack in basque of some "modern" terms.

There is as well another important aspect of the language, as it is a very earth-integrated. There are thousands of words to designate particular trees, or animals, the sea state, types of wood, weather. Some other words have a very poetical meaning, such as the word for "moon", "ilargi", what literally means "dead light" or "light of the dead".

Maybe our ancestors thought the shine on the moon was the souls of those who died on the earth.

Euskadi is one of the few surviving pre-Indo-European languages in Europe. The language has had to be fought for during Franco's regime. It is a stubborn language that will not die, you gotta respect that! Gora gora Euskadi!

Icelandic

The only reason it isn't in the top 3 is because its not widely known

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

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

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.

Quechua

yes.

Galician

Really beautiful language and mother of portuguese (4th position)!

En todo estás e ti es todo,
Pra min y en min mesma moras,
Nin me dexarás ti nunca,
Sombra que sempre me asombras

The most ancient ibero-romance language of the Iberian peninsula and mother of the Portuguese language spoke mostly in northwestern iberia

Yucatec Maya

Cool.

Norwegian

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

Sounds like a beautiful song!

Hebrew

Worst sounding language ever, it hurts to hear and to speak it.

Once you give it the time of the day it will become more beautiful than anything on this list. Nothing sonds more soothing than Hebrew music.
Plus it's the language in which God communicated to his people in the bible. So learning it will give you a completely different understanding of scripture.

It is the language of the prophets
Of the sign up on the wall
It is old and sacred
It will open up your soul

It's both extremely simple and extremely deep and multi-faceted at the same time. It's unlike any other language for that characteristic and it's sonority is very sing-song, soft-sounding and unique.

Hungarian

It's so satisfying to hear native speakers say all of those syllables in one word.

You can't not express yourself with this language. Infinite possibilities.

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

The music is awesome, and when you hear it, you'd get interested to learn it.

Indonesian

Easy to learn. The language that can unify all country in the future. Like indonesian unify their islands

It has 300 millions speaker and also one of the easiest language to learn!

It is very easy to learn Indonesian.

Indonesian language is the most easy language to learn.

Irish

Not many people know how Irish sounds, and I think more people should listen to it, it sounds mystical.

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.

I was in Ireland over the summer, this language is written everywhere from road signs to doctors offices, it's a gorgeous language!

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.

Persian

Sound friendly, kind, calm, romantc,beautiful,its alluring and definitely worth learning beacause its just really easy to learn (well, was for me ) and it just sounds great

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

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

I think Persian sounds calm and romantic and they donot use one letter more than other letters

Sanskrit

Sanskrit is the best of all languages I've heard till yet. Mother of all languages. Gods used to speak in Sanskrit. I am proud to say I am learning this language which has a way lot of influence in Indian history. Also, this language is usually used by priests to do any sorts of prayer.

This language is the post perfect technical language.It's been noted by great language researchers.
The most beautiful language and also the language which doesn't has a single vulgar term

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.

American English

It's better than anything, french is trash compared to it. GET IT RIGHT!

It's easy for me to say this is awesome cause I'm from America! It's easy to understand; British English is choppy and sounds hilarious!

Come on. Imagine "Game of Thrones" in American English, no one is laughing nor thinking its choppy. This is coming from an American.

Wolof

It sounds like wolf

Perfect sounding

Cherokee

Whoever said that Cherokee sounds like a dying frog is a dying frog!

Cherokee is a ugly disgusting language it sounds like a dying frog.

Guarani

Haven't heard of half of these...

Modern Paraguayan Guarani is a very expressive agglutinative language with nasal harmony. But Guarani, in the forms of Língua Geral Paulista and Língua Geral Amaz'nica, was once the lingua franca (unifying language) of Brazil. And how can I forget to mention all the pretty polkas in Guarani?! It is a lovely language that has been hidden in the shadows of Spanish and Portuguese.
