Top 10 Best Sounding Languages

The Contenders: Page 3

41 American English

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.

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

It sounds elegant for some reason

Gosh, the elegance of Filipino language lowers because gay lingo integrates here. - VNTMFans

Our languange is the best it came from spanish ex:escuela and english ex:t-shirt

43 Albanian

Is the best sounding language in balkan 4 sure!

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.

A very interesting and unique language, it being in its own branch. It is very melodic and beautiful.

44 Hebrew

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.

Hebrew is unique in its ability to be read without being understood. When spoken properly, it flourishes in a harmonious blend of power and grace.

Amazing Language

45 Bulgarian

I don't understand a word of it but it sounds like a more musical version of my own language - Brazilian portuguese. The pronunciation is quite similar

I've just heard nina dobrev speak it on T.V. sounds so unique and beautiful.

Almost like a soft whisper

Way more interesting than the Italian one.

46 Hindi

This language is full of beauty. A mix of ancient languages such as Sanskrit and evolving to Modern Standard Hindi, it is spoken by 180 million people (June 2015). It sounds beautiful and exotic, and no other language around the world.

Very unique language much better than few of your top ten languages on the way how it sounds...proper Hindi is difficult but sounds stunning!

Well I am not supporting Hindi because I speak it... I am supporting it because it has that melody in it which can be felt by everyone if he/she tries to learn it

Love to listen and speak it all day

47 Hungarian

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

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

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

One of the hardest languages in the world, and one of the most unique and special. enough said.

The sweetest sounding Dravidian language. A perfect blend of ancient Tamil and Sanskrit

49 Welsh

The oldest language spoken still spoken by people in Europe. It's Celtic and sounds like something a Lord of the Rings elf should be speaking. Wish I was born in a Welsh speaking part of Wales almost every day because it's a hard language to learn yet a huge part of my culture and history.

The oldest language still spoken in Western Europe and undoubtedly the most beautiful. It's a shame most people have never heard it otherwise it would be much higher up on this list.


True. Learning it at the moment. It sounds otherworldly. So beautiful.

My favorite language! I'm learning Welsh and it is so gorgeous!

Iaith y nefoedd (language of heaven) Such a wealth of literature.

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

Probably most elvish-like language in terms of beauty

It sounds so pure and innocent. Truly a gods gift

51 Esperanto

I'm learning it. It's easy to both pronounce and learn, and sounds nice. Many consonants have vowels after them, so I (Japanese) can pronounce it well.

Easy, fun and quick to learn.. the best language for beginners!

It's very easy to learn and it's so nice...

Esperanto estas bela. Also one of the easiest to learn, in fact, that is what it was created for.

52 Elvish

My sister is learning Quenya, and it is definitely gorgeous. Tolkein was, without a doubt, absolutely brilliant. However, even the master of languages can only mimic the exquisite beauty of certain other languages, especially Welsh. Quenya is prettier than some languages (like French), but one person can only go so far.

There are 2 major Elvish languages: Quenya and Sindarin. - SammySpore

Trust a Tolkien language to make it hear at some point, and what language the Elvish tongue is, not many in particular can stand against the common tongue of Sindarin. For all the reasons to love Irish and Welsh (the latter being what this language is in fact based off of), Sindarin is a language of sheer beauty and mastery that only the writer of L.O.T. R could have pulled off in it's creation.

54 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!

55 European Portuguese

There's no such thing as "European Portuguese." Portuguese is European and is native to Portugal. "Brazilian" Portuguese is its variant and not the other way around.

It's very dramatic and stronge. If you listen to a FADO song you'll understand the beauty of the language.

56 Nahuatl

Language of the Aztecs, also known as Mexican.

57 Klingon

Klingon are so cool. LOLZ. My brother told a teacher something *(b/c they were making fun of one girl in the class) ounce in Klingon "Correctly" back in Middle school,EVERYONE still remembers it to this day. The the teacher didn't understand a word of what my brother said *(in the girls defense)
# Klingon is AWEsome

58 Quechua
59 Yucatec Maya
60 Guarani

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.
