Top 10 Best Sounding Germanic Languages


The Top Ten

1 Swedish Swedish

Swedish is not beautiful. Swedish has geminated vowels, and when somebody pronounces a word with gemination in Swedish, they sound like they're retarded, or their speech is lagging as a sequel from a brain stroke. Geminations don't work with Germanic languages, which tend to have tons of consonant clusters. Lengthened vowels (Gemination) + Consonant cluster: big NO NO!
Compare the geminations in a more melodic, clusterless language like Japanese, and then in Swedish, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Swedish is the most beautiful language I've ever heard, French and Danish are close honorable mentions!

I'm learning Swedish right now and I love it. The language is so clearly structured, yet it flows beautifully when spoken.

Mucho mejor que el Danés, el Danes no suena tan bien pero el Sueco suena muy bien y mucho mejor, Increíble idioma! Me encanta esté idioma muchísimo

3 German

German is the most beautiful sounding language I have ever learned. ( I can speak German, Italian, Spanish, English, Turkish, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Korean, Greek and Danish fluently ), yes not too much it is enough for me.

I like it for it's formality. I picture an accomplished scientist or author when I hear it.

Of course German is the best sounding Germanic language duh

Best singers are from Germany like Thomas Anders. Very beautiful language and sounds like a more advanced version of English (no offense to Englishmen) - MagmaFox
