Funniest Sounding Languages

The Top Ten
1 Chinese

I did a skit with my friends. At the end, we were all supposed to say "Remember, don't try this at home, kids" in different languages. I did it with my friends (let's call them Ash, Misty, and Brock because I can). Ash didn't really know any languages other than English, so she said it normally. Then Misty did it in Spanish, and I did German.

Then it was Brock's turn. Oh my God, she couldn't stop laughing. It almost ruined our skit. She was like, "I don't even remember." Anyways, this language sounds weird and had the four of us cracking up. No offense to any of you that are Chinese and speak it - not trying to be racist.

2 Hindi

Hindi is funny and fascinating compared to the dull, monotonous, rotten languages of the West.

Hindi is the funniest sounding language. As a German, I like India and the language Hindi.

Can you get a goofier sounding language?

3 Japanese
4 Danish

One time, I chatted with a Danish girl. She sent me a voice message, and I think that she hiccups all the time.

5 Korean

Sounds like Japanese but gibberish.

6 Mongolian

A mix between Russian and Chinese. So cool!

7 Dutch

As an English speaker, where many Dutch words look and spell very similarly to English words, spoken Dutch sounds like a stereotypical "Lucky Charms" Irishman trying to speak German. This is not an insult. It actually makes the language that much more endearing!

It sounds like they're trying too hard to not be English but at the same time to be English. It's a cute language.

Sounds like the Netherlands know how to mess up the English language.

8 English

What I find amusing is some of their attempts to say words that the Brits use constantly. Like "use" becomes "oose" and "art" becomes "aat". Not all of them are like this, but some are.

Everything in English sounds like a joke. I can't take this language seriously.

English is a pretty weird language. Some of the words are kind of funny to pronounce. For example, gurgle, patty, boom, cheese, whatever. It's sort of an awkward language when you think about it.

9 Arabic

Sounds like the speaker is trying to spit and gargle at the same time. Very harsh and guttural. Don't believe me? Just listen to any Arabic commentary in a football video. Allah hu mobarak hu goal... fatu hu khwadh ha..

Arabic and Persian both sound like someone is gagging something up.

10 Finnish

This language is so funny when we are trying to speak it.

Look up "Pasi Viheraho" if you want to hear how true Finnish sounds.

The Contenders
11 French

My problem with French is that the words are pronounced nothing like they are spelled. In French, Paris becomes Parii, Versailles becomes Versii, Brittany becomes Bretagne, and so on. I'm not trying to sound like a stupid and culturally insensitive American, but this just makes it much harder to learn and pronounce French.

Can't stop laughing when people speak. It sounds funny because it sounds like they're reading fast. French is a silly language!

Sounds very rudimentary and romantic, as someone who says love you.

12 Swedish

I've been watching some Swedish Pingu subtitles made by YouTube and searched up the subs in Google Translate. It was so comical and funny, yet they were very inappropriate.

It sounds a bit like they have no tongues. Too vowel heavy.

13 Vietnamese

I find Vietnamese an interesting language, yet funny. Their pronunciation is loud, strong, and just sounds weird, in my opinion.

Sounds funnier than Chinese. Should be number 1, I guess. These people never heard the Vietnamese language before.

Like that other person, I find Vietnamese an interesting language but think it sounds hilarious.

14 German

When I was a little kid, whenever I heard German accents, I would laugh because of how funny it sounded to me. I'm not like that now, but it was the funniest thing for me back in the day.

I remember watching Inglourious Basterds and I couldn't help but laugh during the long dialogue scenes because their accents sounded so funny.

I never knew German could be so funny until I tried to study it myself. And I know my fair share of languages.

15 Thai

With family in Thailand, I spend a lot of time there. The tones sound like straining and are quite nasal. Some sounds cannot possibly be a form of communication.

It's very funny to hear Thai people talking to each other.

16 Polish

It's funny, unique, weird, beautiful, and awesome at the same time!

It does sound funny... so does every Slavic language to me, except Russian.

17 Russian

The accent is very funny when they speak English with a Russian accent. The cafeteria lady at my school speaks with a Russian accent, and whenever she says "chicken burger," it sounds like "chicken booger." I can't stop laughing my heart out when I hear it.

I don't know, but something about how they pronounce some of their words is really funny to me. Currently learning the language too!

18 Slovak

It's like Polish, but most funny.

19 Albanian
20 Macedonian
21 Italian
22 Filipino

Filipino language is a bit funny, but it is a good language. Tagalog is very similar, I think, because I can speak Filipino a little bit because I traveled to the Philippines when I was a kid. Now I'm at home (America).

We speak these languages, and sometimes I'm so confused about how to pronounce a word.

Philippines languages are composed of English, Spanish, and Filipino. That's why it's unique.

23 Turkish

The women on the Turkish shows my mom watches sound like aliens.

24 Norwegian

As a Swede, it sounds hilarious sometimes.

25 Serbian

The majority of the sentences start with a curse or an insult. It also comes out nasty, but intentions are good.
