Top 10 Coolest Languages

The Top Ten
1 German

Language of logic, words combine and separate in a way that makes sense. always has been the language of the working man by driven people. The only ones who are rude and offensive enough that say German sounds angry are lazy people who love and study languages with a culture based around pleasure, not hard work or efficiency. German has beautiful pronunciation and of course there's a variation between who the speaker is and what country they are from (Switzerland, Austria, Germany, etc.) most people only experience with the language are racist stereotypes and speeches from Hitler in high school they heard. People are very uneducated to say such ignorant things like it's a angry sounding language.

For sure French is the most beautiful language and english is my favourite language. But german is the language you will really sound sophisticated and cool in at the same time. Einstein was a german and wrote his relativity theory in it, that's a big point for this language. But I am glad, that the Nazis have destroyed the science german, because it would be much harder for the world to learn german as the dominating science language. So hail to the Nazis for this.

Most of you may don't know this, but german is one of the newest languages on the planet, when Martin Luther translated the bible he formed the german language, that is spoken today. He made something genius there, he formed a language all german districts could understand and it is the beginning of modern german. As a native german I have to thank you for voting us up here, wouldn't have thought, that it sounds cool to you...

Many modern German words are the same as words from Middle English! That means Chaucer! Shouldn't be a surprise since both languages are Germanic. It is also the main lingua franca in Europe. And if almost 70% of Japanese students learn it then it has to be cool. Longest written words are written in German. German helps to correctly pronounce beer names. Toughest English spelling contest words are usually Germanic. Too cool!

2 English

It's very precise, logical, but yet nuanced & expressive — & already functions as the world's unofficial language of all things important.
Apart from some weird spellings, it is great because the rules are fairly simple, & it doesn't mess around with conjugating verbs a thousand different ways, & you don't have to worry about gender cases, plus many other awesome benefits.

In modern days, English is a requirement plus there are different varieties of English like British, American, Australian and many more. British English is way next level. As a Bangladeshi, I adore the British speaking style very much. One of the mesmerizing one.

My native language is English and if you think about it hard enough (in my opinion) you get to see the true beauty and how cool English actually is. Another reason why I think English is cool it that it is spoken almost everywhere and wherever you go there will always be someone who speaks English!

English is spoken in Eurovision, Junior Eurovision, NATO, European Union, airports, all of the football confederations, except Conmebol. It is the most taught language in schools. English is everywhere, it is around us.

3 French

I have been learning French for a while now and I think it is so cool how everything makes sense! And the pronunciation is pretty straight forward unlike English one you get to know how to speak it. J'aime parle français!

When you learn french you see the world differently, it's no coincidence if it's the second language the most learn after english. Moreover it's useful in many countries all over the world, it's the most beautiful language, the language of love, culture, elegance... Its really the coolest language in the world.

I have to say that I do think German is pretty cool, but it always sounds like you are coughing. I speak French and German and I think that French is far more beautiful. This makes French expressive, but the only thing I find German useful for expressing is anger. Si on parle français et allemand, on va trouver que le français est plus expressif en tout des situations.

As for comparing French to the other languages, I don't speak them. I can say though that I like the sound of French much better than any of them and I think French deserves the top spot, or at least #2 (it is hard to compete with German).

"Rouge. " I like how in French, the beginning of the word gets ahead of the tongue of the person speaking it. Then, at the end of the word, the tongue catches up to the word.

4 Russian

Russian, even though is extremely difficult to learn, is so interesting with the flexible word order and mysterious sounds. I have been studying for 3 years and feel as if I am just now appreciating the culture and influence the Russian people have made upon the world.

It sounds very cool and is difficult to learn, making it something impressive to know. Additionally, there are plenty of Russian speakers in the world to practice it with, making it something practical, rather than Gaelic and Irish.

More interesting than most other languages. Best language to use if you don't want your enemies to know what you're saying about them. It's super super difficult to learn, so most people give up easily.

Russian is a fab one to learn. It sounds so awesome. Although it is quite a complex language, it definitely is one of the best!

5 Spanish

There's a reason why it's the second most spoken language in the world after Chinese. By the way, 95% of Chinese speakers live in China while Spanish speakers are everywhere, therefore, technically Spanish is the most spoken language globally. Spain rocks.

Passionate and to the point. It is what it is, there is no hiding in fancy French or Latin vocabulary (it be silly). No need to make weird noises to sound good, as long as you say something meaningful you are good.

I feel that Spanish is easier to learn than a lot of other languages, and that it's fun, too!

Spanish is easy to learn and to speak. Plus, it looks and sounds amazing.

6 Italian

Italian is the closest language to Latin. So if you know even a few Latin roots, it will make the while process easier. It is also the language that most music is written in. Have you ever wondered what words like adiago, esspressivo, presto and fortissimo mean? They are all Italian for how the music is played; slow, with expression, very quickly and loudly.
As a musician, I have learned a lot of Italian just by reading music sheets.
Give Italian a go! It is a beautiful language and definitely worth learning.

Italian is very cool. When written the language looks simple yet accurate without the use of many accents. When spoken, all of the words come together to make a beautiful sounding language. This is by the far the coolest language.

I love Italian so much. It a 'bella' language, and I constantly come out with Italian phrases every day at home. I have been to Italy before (I'm English) and the country is as beautiful as the language. Ciao bella/bello!

I should say that these are utterly subjective postings - all languages have their own appeal. But even so, Italian is by far the most sophisticated language out there.

7 Japanese

Learn it at school. Makes us sound good. It's an awesome language! I love the kanji too and how every picture means a word and a when you put two or more pictures together you can guess what the word is. It's a very sensible language.

Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji and Romaji (the one I am using now), mixtured together. Add a bunch of inconsistencies in reading, plus counters and onomatopoeia and you got the coolest language. I love languages in general, and there are a bunch other I love as well, but Japanese is pure magic.

Japanese sounds so cool and at the same time it is easy to pronounce. Just like the language, the culture is interesting and both of them just as amazing as the other.

It sounds so cool! By just listening to a Japanese song or watching an anime you'll find it amazing and cool!

8 Swedish

I love Swedish. I used to teach myself Swedish, and then my parents took me to Sweden for a week so I could practice more, and I love the language so much now. Ha en bra dag!

Some of you have never heard Swedish before and are just passing this one by. You guys HAVE to look up someone talking in Swedish. ' amazing.

Swedish is so beautiful! I love the language so much I just had to learn! Some of my favorite singers are Swedish

One of the most beautiful looking and sounding languages you'll ever come across!

9 Irish

It sounds so beautiful and unique, and the phonics are very different from English. Also, it feels very soft and dancing on your tongue.

I gotta admit that Irish is among the most warm-sounding language there is. It truly sounds magical.

The coolest of the Celtic languages and the one with the greatest number of speakers.

Very interesting, immensely growing language. I love it! I highly recommend it.

10 Dutch

Sounds beautiful and really messed with English speakers head and makes them do a double take. Sometimes it's easier for them to understand what you're saying. Also it sounds like The Sims language

Dutch is a really fun language and a great choice for an English speaker who wants to learn a second language. Dutch culture is really interesting to learn about and Dutch people are really nice and fun to interact with.

I'm a native English Speaker, so I found it quite easy to learn. That's the only reason I picked it.

It sounds so funny to me, since I speak both English and German - very child-like!

The Contenders
11 Korean

Honestly, Korean is amazing! I love that it's just so unique and it's a very well modern language. Korean is so cool as well and if you speak it, you are already cool! The language is nice because it sounds so strong and affirmitave.

It's my first language and I love it. I also do love English, Japanese, Spanish and Chinese so I tried to learn them all, and I find that English is very brilliant and efficient as I can speak with people all around the world, and Japanese is very smoothing and sound so cute, but Chinese and Korean have some kinds of feeling, I guess? Their words are full of meanings. I really like to write 'Love' in Chinese character after one of my Chinese friends taught me its character is a combination of roof and friend (Please correct me if I'm wrong). And I love my language because, maybe because I am a native speaker, but I find it beautiful whenever I read or write poems and novels.

I liked Kpop and tried learning Korean, and about a month and a half I could already speak common Korean phrases, read, write and understand Hangul/Hangugeo. It is very easy to learn and is very fun to speak in this language. Saranghae!

It has a sort of calm and soothing but also trendy and sophisticated sound (Standard Korean - A.K.A. "Seoul-mal"), and their dialects are also unique and sometimes funny (no offense). Koreans also have two ways of saying numbers - Traditional Korean: hana, dool, saet and "Chinese" character Korean - il, ee, sam, as similar to Japanese. The Korean language also incorporates honorifics meant to show respect or manners for those who are older than them or higher in position of them (sunbaes - Korean way of addressing students or workers who are above ones grade or position, elderly, etc.), as well as strangers. What's best about Korean is how follows a phonetic alphabet system, enabling one to say words that you do not know but can still pronounce it and ask what it means without having to write it down. (Chinese and Japanese use characters, excluding hiragana, katakana, etc., and even some natives can possibly not able to read a character they have never seen, making it harder for them) ...more

12 Chinese

Chinese is very ancient and sounds very cliche. I would study Chinese and it just sounds so cool as well; and the language itself has so many meaning and culture.

It has cool grammar, sounds cool, has a cool writing system, has a lot of unique history, a lot of people speak it, and it comes from a unique culture. Should be number 1 or 2.

Traditional Chinese looks beautiful when written down, Simplified Chinese simply looks bad.

Every character got its meaning.I don't think any of other languages could compare its meanings with chinese.

13 Arabic

Honestly, the best part of a language can be its complexity, and Arabic is pretty cool since letters can vary in shape but since several letters have similar shapes with very distinct differences, even learning these variations is simple. I haven't gotten into sentence structure yet but the words by themselves are pretty cool.

Arabic truly is an extremely eloquent and beautiful language. People claim that Romance languages (esp. French) are the languages of love, however, I honestly think Arabic is truly the language of love. There is absolutely nothing in any other language that can encompass the love that habibti (my love) and albi (literally my heart) do.

This language sounds so fantastic with the cool sounds that most of the languages doesn't have. It has its own unique sounds, and also the Arabic alphabets are really beautiful! My dream is to master Arabic some day.

Sounds amazing. Arabic has very particular and amazing sounds, and is awesome to hear. My teachers would compliment me about the way it sounds when I speak it.

14 American Sign Language

No phonetics (obviously), but after learning the language from a deaf friend I feel that the hand movements are very fluid and beautiful to watch. The language of hands

15 Persian

Persian might not be the most useful language to learn, but I think it is the most amazing language, and I'm lucky my mother tongue is Persian... full of idioms and proverbs, rich literature (you can find most beautiful and touching poems only in Persian), beautiful & unique sounds, and ancient... although, Persian has been at risk of death in history (after Arabs' and Mongols' attack). It's widely spoken today. Persian even has been the official language of India for a long time in history, covering a large area in Asia.

I am an Iranian living in India. I learnt Persian from my grand mother. I just fell in love with this language.

I do speak this one! not as native though, but it sound very soft, nice with poems

Is the best language in the world and that is the language of the Beauty Poems

16 Finnish

Amazing language. Very melodic, sounds very beautiful when people are not trying to sound like douches... The language can be really tricky for some people to learn as it is belongs to the Uralic language and its vocab can be completely alien to people, as well as tricky grammar...

My opinion is: Finnish is the best and coolest language in the world, mostly because the words are written and pronounced exactly the same. And - SURPRISE SURPRISE - Finnish is my native language!

I would really LOVE to learn Finnish but it's hard to find resources since it's not really a language that people LEARN... Especially online. It really sounds beautiful!

It's one of those you can't just classify it's supposedly I heard easy to learn for English speakers but it doesn't seem that way. Sound complex

17 Norwegian

I have been learning Norwegian for a while now, and I've got to say, I love how simple and how much sense it makes! It also sounds awesome! Jeg elsker norsk!

I know both Danish and Swedish, and I always used to think it sounded so stupid and child-like. But after living in Norway for a few months, and getting some exposure of the language, it sounds really cute. Definitely the easiest out of Scandinavian languages for native English speakers in terms of pronunciation. It's also sort of like the in between Scandinavian language, since Norwegian is understood by both Danes and Swedes.

It's both melodic and beautiful. But most important; Norwegian are ' awesome.

The best! It is the best I'm telling you! The best!

18 Bulgarian

Bulgarian is a beautiful language, I speak English, French, Spanish and also study German, but my native one is Bulgarian!

The Bulgarian language is very beautiful. Logical grammar but at the same time hard

It has the most logical grammar in the world.

It's a nice sounding language and has an interesting yet hard grammar

19 Greek

Greek is the path to open your mind. You succeed a connection with top works from the field of Philosophy, Literature, Arts and ancient sciences. I hope to everyone having this opportunity!

I love Greek with its relaxing beautiful sounds. After studying it along with a dozen languages, it has been my favorite

It's soft tone almost sounds like Spanish and is very subtle. Also is great way to extend your historical background

Very fast and elegant when spoken; the language of liturgical Greek Orthodox chants.

20 Portuguese

Portuguese is just beautiful. Be it from Brazil or Portugal or some African countries. The best is from Portugal though, it's original, poetic as Brazilian is more fun and happy.

I love the Portugal portuguese because it's a beautiful language and it's the original. It is, without a doubt, the best language in the world, spoken by the best people in the world.

Amazing language. Is spoken by the best people in the world. (Brazilians). Language sounds super cool and Brazilian Portuguese is really open and free.

A very interesting language to lear for sure! If you like good music or nice literature is a very nice choice!

21 Scottish Gaelic

I'm so happy to see this here. I love everything Scottish and I think the way it flows, yet is powerful is one of the most fascinatingly beautiful things on the planet.

I've been learning Scottish Gaelic for a little while now, and it sounds so cool, so interesting, and it sounds so different and cool.

I'm a French dude and do like the Scottish Gaelic, a language which must be more learnt.

I love this language. I speak 15 languages and this is one of my favouites!

22 Celtic
23 Belarusian

It is considered one of the most melodic languages in the world, second after Italian. It should get more credit. It is a beautiful language.

24 Polish

Sounds really unique! A lot of "sh" sounds, but that's what makes it sound cool in my opinion.

Polish obviously isn't my native language, but it sounds so cool, and wish I could be polish.

Polish is not so hard to learn, contrary to popular belief. Also, it's beautiful!

A lot of hissing sounds, polish kind of sounds like insects buzzing.

25 Icelandic

Remember, this is a list of the coolest language, and that is defiantly Icelandic. One of the oldest languages still used today, Icelandic is practically identical the most fascinating historical language of all time, Old Norse. Icelandic is an absolutely magical sounding language, and in my opinion, it the best poetry language of all time. When you visit Iceland like I have done, you will realize that all other languages absolutely pale in comparison. Icelandic sounds like it is from a another world, it is beautiful, unique, and ethereal just like the perfect country from which it comes.

Let's not forget Icelandic, I'm Icelandic and all my foreign friends find it pretty awesome just listening to it, it's like speaking a language from a fantasy book, the spelling is one thing but the dialect and pronouncing is another, check it out!

This is the closest you get to Old Norse. Very complex and very beautiful sounding. I was in Iceland and the men that speak it sound like a Viking and the women that speak it sound soft and gentle.

Archaic and hard to pronounce words. Very beautiful language, especially when sung.
