Top Ten Romantic Languages

The Top Ten

1 French

Such a romantic language and not harsh like some of the other European languages. Also, the French people don't talk loudly which makes their language even more endearing.

It's a way to express feeling and emotion in a way like no other. It originates from a place of great beauty. The lang. Is thought of highly and is respected for its ways of making someone know you truly care

The french is beautiful. They have the best love song in the world. The language may be hard, (it is even hard for french) but the difficulty able you to express feeling better. Believe me, be able to sing in french work with laddies ;).

Some of the words are really hard to say maybe its because I never spoken it and I'm teaching my self so good luck to me and other if you are teaching your self and I love french so fun and loving

2 Spanish

Spanish is probably the most beautiful language. As a musician composer I can not find other language than Spanish to give the same freedom to compose.

I agree that Spanish is by far the most romantic language, but I disagree with some of the above comments. I feel that Mexico has the best accent, certain parts do at least. This is probably because it's closest to our English and all consonants are pronounced. In Puerto Rican speakers usually switch the R and L and bunch words together, as do Cubans and a lot of other countries, they also tend to speak faster or seem faster and harder to understand because of this... Spaniards tend to have a bit of a lisp. I am part Spanish so I am being objective... I do agree at how descriptive and poetic one expresses themselves in Spanish, I sometimes think of things in Spanish and then translate to English when I want to melt a special lady's heart...

When spoken correctly, no matter the accent, Spanish is, by far, the most beautiful, most romantic language. It is probably one of the most well developed languages to exist. It's spoken and written form are so clean and easy to understand. It has such a melodic tone that even an insult can sound romantic.

Spanish is not just a form of communication, but numerous words that come together in a form of song. As native speakers have conversations, you naturally hear every other word rhyme. As a native speaker, I catch the phrases every now and then and see why people use them as melodies of songs. Italian, French, and English (when spoken correctly) are easy to be noticed with this as well. I am sure if I was to understand other languages I would see this in them as well. Spanish sounds so fluid though, and many of my friends ask me to speak it all the time and are trying to learn it.

3 Portuguese

It's so phonetic! I love the way it sounds.

Portuguese is by far, the most romantic language. Though Portuguese varies from country to country, it stills sounds beautiful.

Portuguese is a beautiful language on earth to me. It's like love but in a language. I think it should be #1 because its so beautiful. I speak that language everyday with my parents! It's beautiful and amazing!

Like portugese. It is the sweetest language in the whole world

4 Italian

It is also romantic in the original sense of the word. As in, definitely coming from Latin. Which is an awesome language.

I feel like everybody says that Italian is romantic which is true.

Italian all the way. Its like you're singing when you talk.

As an American I am not exposed to the amount of beauty and true love that is brought through the harsher landscapes of the land. In Italy I see a world that could never be seen here in America and I realized that if the native people of the italian landscapes actualy looked up and saw where they were they would realize that they are the holders of true beauty. Making them cherish other beautiful things so much more than the people of my country.

5 Japanese

Japanese in my opinion is the best language for singing. It's unique because all syllables are open, and even n sound is syllabic so it sounds like a vowel in songs... I haven't found a language that would suited for singing better then Japanese. (some Polynesian languages have some similar qualities in the way their syllables are built (for example Maori), but unfortunately these languages are mostly dying out). Japanese culture and science is very rich and in many ways unique too. I think Japanese is very romantic (except for gangster speech... Like.. Kora teme wa dare the! Ore wa dare the to omou.. Etc) but ladies usually don't use such kind of language, and gentlemen too. So Japanese is the best for singing, very romantic and pleasant to listen to. Rap is the only thing Japanese language is bad at=) But I don't care about it, because I hardly listen to rap. Well it doesn't mean that every song in Japanese is nice, no.. Not at all.. There are tones of bad ones.. But tones of good ...more

Japanese is one of the difficult language, but it is also very beautiful language! That's why, I'm learning Japanese in Japanese university.

Simply the best language ever. The range of emotions is very wide, from the most vicious, to the most romantic as well as to the cutest voice

The Japanese language, (I am learning currently) is more beautiful then what I thought. When I talk in Japanese, I seem... Younger, and I'm in my late teens. Italian is nowhere near romantic in my opinion. French is only on here due to stereotype's on T.V.. Spanish is kinda... Ugly in my opinion. - Buddha

6 Greek

When I hear Greek girls talking..its a turn on - matty101

Sexiest Language in the world! '

Very smooth flowing and romantic, you get a feeling for how ancient and developed of a language Greek really is! Just listen to anything by Nikos Vertis or Hristos Holidis and you'll see!

I speak Greek too my wife all the time an she has
No idea what I'm saying but she loves it

7 Korean

I love Korean, cause it sounds romantic it's has many Vowels that's why it is smooth to the ear... Example SARANGHAEYO (I Love You) and Keuraeyo? (RIGHT? )... The "yo" it sound's sweet... Because it is WAVING and other words.. And it is simple to learn I know how to write and Read.. In the grammar it's quite difficult...

Songs in this language are the best because they flow so easily. The characters are beautiful and easy to learn. The language is so expressive and you can convey any feeling like when you say (I miss you) you can really hear the feel and the love. So romantic!

Korean words are very unique, in comparison wit Japanese Korean language very different. particularly songs, them are so beautiful. then you listening them you even can't image that this is Korean. I love how they speak in informal and formal way, its like two different languages, but is it not. I'm from Europa and my biggest dream to speak Korean.

Echo the comments... it is also the only written and spoken language that was wholly created by the 1st emperor of Korea. It had not evolved as other languages have done in a natural way. Prior to the invention of Korean, their country relied on the Chinese in language, arts and all things cultural. The first emperor did their country a huge favor. - mgenet

8 English

The thing about English is that we have SO MUCH flexibility that almost every other language does not have. We can mess with our own rules so much and have it still make perfect sense. We can abuse word play when it comes to flirting, we can change the tone of our voice in so many different ways, English is just so damn flexible, it's not even funny. There are so many ways that we can flirt and turn people on that other languages cannot do because they are a lot more constrained by their very strict rules that English doesn't really have. VERY difficult language to master, but extremely easy to pick up and learn the basics. We just use so much slang and so much witty word play that you can't really learn it unless you're experiencing it.

Let's be serious. The only ones that beat English are Spanish French and Italian ( maybe Portuguese depending on the speaker) English is at worst the 5th most romantic language in the world. Eloquent speakers can use the language to create unmatched beauty just like Shakespeare used to do.

English is not THE most romantic sounding language in the world, but it does not deserve ninth place. English is far to popular and widespread to not be considered in at least the top 5! Italian, Romanian, French, Spanish and then English. English, though extremely difficult to learn, opens up an innumerable amount of phonetic freedom when honed and used properly. English is by far in the top 5!

Is this supposed to be a Romance language, such as a language originating from Rome, or just languages that sound Romantic? But if you say that it is dirty-just listen to other dialects.

9 German

I am german...

I am pure German, I embrace myself.

Especially when spoken by Germans, Austrians and the Swiss

Amazing language, so many different words to express oneself.

10 Arabic

One of the only ancient languages that is still used commonly, every word can have 100 meanings to it, a language that may sound odd to outsiders, but to those who understand it realize it's a language that purely comes from the heart.

I agree with the pure heart thing, I speak a little arabic, and I have to say it's the most beautiful language ever, there are so many ways you can express your feelings through, more than any other language.

Simply about this language, that all of its rights has been demolished because of political and religious reasons. This language must be the first romantic language as you are able to express yourself well in. Arabs have the most romantic expressions and phrases over the world.

I'm native Arabic speaker and I can speak English and Spanish by far Arabic is the most romantic language I've ever seen it's ancient and pure and beautiful you can say romantics word for over 20 ways

The Contenders

11 Romanian

It should be in Top 5 in my opinion.

I have a Romanian boyfriend, and know have to admit, I sometimes ask him to speak in Romanian to me, cause it's so darn romantic. He actually proposed in Romanian. And I say this as a person who grew up just outside of Madrid, Spain.

Romanian language is the most related to Latin language and sounds very beautiful. So, Romanian is my favorite language in the world!

it is one of the most romantic launguages so you can't beat that its the 3rd most romantic language.

12 Hindi

In Hindi you can find word for each and every thing in the world. Other than this it gives respect to each and every individual irrespective of their age, qualification and religion. It's not like English in which everyone is either uncle or aunty.

This language has it's own beauty but person who don't know it how he/she could be able to vote it. After all it needs beauty to find beauty So, learn this language then you will realize I was faking.

Its Hindi that admires beauty through its songs at least listen to them.

Just hear some Hindi songs and think of this list again. When anyone speaks Hindi it seems that he is reciting poem

Love has no language... If you love someone than you can say everything without saying anything. Although everyone like their own language. So I'll say Hindi is my language which is mother of every other language as our culture is the oldest in the world.

Hindi is a beautiful language and one can understand this beauty only if you understand it. if you want to learn Hindi, don't learn the typical new aged Hindi which has now been modified. The real ethnic Hindi and its sweetness lies in the languages used till a few years earlier. Anyone interested should listen to some nice melodies of Sonu Nigham, Jagjit Singh and a few more. And make sure to read the translations in your language to realize it's beauty

13 Persian

The only other language that might come remotely close to Persian in this respect might be French. Spanish? English? Russian? Korean? Are you kidding me? These languages sound mechanical or low quality in comparison to Persian. Persian is simply an art. I've been learning Persian for only one year, and I still can't understand majority of words; however Persian poetry is simply amazing. The Rhythm, the sound, the way the words are juxtaposed is simply unrivaled. From what I understand, they have more poetry literature than the whole Europe combined. Shakespeare sounds armature in comparison to some of the great Persian poets.

There are so many different ways one can say "I love you" or "sweetheart" or "my love" in Persian. Just using different combinations make me sound like a love poet. The greatest love poets of all time (Rumi) wrote in Persian and to this day people translate it into their native tongue, but its original wording is so beautifully written it loses some value once translated. Not only that but the culture is very warm and loving (if you ever visit you would know)

Are you kidding me?! Korean, Romanian and Hindi are among the top ten and Persian and Latin are not?! Then I really have no idea what you mean by Romance! Persian alone has more masterpiece of romantic poems than your whole top ten languages combined. It is so poetic and beautiful that you should really really try hard not to be poetic. The first sentence that I wrote in Persian is most beautiful than many of the English poems that we learned at school. And Latin?! Don't even get me started on this one. !

Persian is the language of poems

14 Latin

It's very structured and logical language and that's why it's very beautiful and so romantic. Because it is very logically consistent and structured, it's very well suited for poetry. As a linguist, I think best romantic languages are;
1. Classical Latin,
2. Classical Greek,
3. Old Persian (Avestan),
4. French,
5. Italian.

Latin is the most beautiful ancient language. Even till this day it has such a smooth sound. Like Italian. English and Spanish combined.

My older brother is learning Latin and I know some words, and they sound musical.

Latin is by far the most romantic language

15 Tagalog

This language is the most expressive lyricism for song, eventually also for drama.

mahal ka (i love you)
mahal mo ba ako (do u love me?)
kinikilig ako (i'm blushing)
gusto kita (i want u)
papakasalan mo ba ako (will u marry me?)
saan, gusto mo ngaun na? (where? do u want it now?)
teka, tanong ko muna sa mga magulang ko (wait, i'll ask my parents first)

gagawin na ba natin ung alam mo na (shall we do the u know?)
sa susunod.. (to be continued..) - ronluna

Tagalogs have romance seriously, okay. And romantic it definitely stands for. Love that Tagalog is one amazing mix of culture, Asian, American, and Spanish all. Therefore, the romanticism of language is definitely deep and is wide range. - arianejoypiu00f1olcoronel

a mix of asian and spanish culture

16 Swedish

Swedish is just fantastic.

If you summed up all the things sweden is good at and gave it a number, it would most likely end up as one of the top 5 nations.

I mean, highest quality of Life in the World. Biggest gamer population in any country. One of the top 3 countries with the lowest infant mortality rate.

Is ranked within the top 20-10 wealthiest and richest nations (on Earth).
Is one of the top 5 nations with the best Healthcare (of which is founded by the stat, ).

And I mean, the language is just awesome - yklo005

Wonderful language and wonderful people! Beautiful Country!

Swedish all the way!

I love you at once please understand

17 Ukrainian

Ukrainian language is very gentle and colorful. If you even shout at somebody in Ukrainian, it sounds as if you make a declaration of love))) Ukrainian can sound like gentle whispering as well as singing of nightingale. That's why among Ukrainian-speaking people Ukrainian is called 'the nightingale's language'.
Besides Ukrainian songs are widely considered as an outstanding contribution to the world's culture. Just find them on the Internet and enjoy listening)))

After Italian the most beautiful and melodious language in the world - Irina2932

You won't find another language where you can describe something in more than 10 ways. And only if you are a native speaker you can catch a slight difference between those words

The most beautiful language I've ever heard!

18 Russian

People say Russian is "violent" and "angry" but I think it is beautiful and romantic. I would much rather be spoken to in Russian than French by my lover.

The best to listen to and yes, the most romantic

Most beautiful words and you can say EXACT the way you feel and make point across

I'm Russian and have been told it sound very violent but to me it sound so sweet and romantic.

19 Tahitian

Its awesome bruh

20 Melayu

When my malay boyfriends read to me malay poems, it really tugs on my heart strings because the language itself is just so beautiful and in addition to the man himself who is reading it, I can just fall in love in an instant.

unique language come in a very soft tones

I like it.. Even though I'm Indonesian and most Indonesians hate Malay, but for me it is more smoother and it flows better than Indonesians.. There's many word you can adress yourself too.. One of top unique Asians languages

I love words by words sounding

21 Vietnamese

Unlike other languages, Vietnamese has 6 tons. Therefore, every sentence is produced, especially by the people from Hanoi - capital of Viet Nam, is completely as beautiful as a song.
Vietnamese grammar is really flexible but sophisticated, for example, in one sentence, if you change its word position, you may have different meaning. The diversity of personal pronoun also contributes to the uniqueness of language, when choosing pronouns to use, you indicate your attitude to your counterpart in communication : love, hate, angry, despicable, privilege, power, status...

Its unbelievable richness in vocabulary and sounds make it super attractive!

Songs, Poets, and any art forms...Yes! This language is absolutely colorful & stunning. - VNTMFans

A variety of sounds. People speaks as if they sing! Love it!

22 Hawaiian
23 Chinese

Chinese is a graceful language!

It's actually a very sentiment language with lots of literature. No wonder why its subject bases on writing knowledge and literature than grammar, and the westerners find it so hard. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Once of the oldest language, it's rich in history and when you learn the culture, you will love and appreciate this beautiful language.

As a native mandarin speaker, I'm more than proud of my language. Considering its cultural richness, I would say it's more than just a language, it's a book of history.

24 Bengali

It is the best and the most romantic language..however I would rate Spanish as nearly the same and French the next(French sounds better with only a few people)

Bengali is really sweeter than any other language in the world!

Who dare to rank bengali like this. whoever it is he or she is mentally retired

Bengali is the most romantic language I ever hreard.

25 Turkish

When Turkish Guys speak.. Girls hearts melt. I wish I could get a Turkish hot Guy.

One of the most romantic. Music for my ears

24? Oh my god you think only romance languages can be romantic?

I'm trapped between all the other languages I have in school and speak at home (Farsi, Kurdish, English, Spanish, Norwegian and Northern Norwegian written language) and I still manage to learn Turkish. It's because no other language has got what Turkish's got. This language definitely has to make it to top 10.

26 Hungarian

Hungarian is a very romantic language. Most beautiful ever!

27 Finnish


28 Creole
29 Native American

Ever heard a Native American speak in their language? Well you should.

30 Polish

The language of the Poles is quite literally a melting pot as it comprises the Baltic, Germanic and Romance language groups. It is this combination that gives it the quality of complete beauty. To a trained ear, the Polish tongue has sweet echoes and clean, crisp sounds that role off the tongue into a kind of cauldron of passionate diction.

You can express everything in Polish either in simple words or in very complicated long phrases. Thanks to its inflectional character, the long exuberant phrases are still understandable. And the nasal sounds do their job.

It's simply a West Slavic language with a touch of Baltic, Germanic, and Romance languages here and there. We're one of the few languages in Europe to still have nasal vowels. Although it may not be Most Romantic, it DEFINITELY should be higher on the list.

Polish is so beautiful language :) I love it

31 Tamil

If you learn Tamil. You will know what is unconditional Love.

I feel that, Tamil is the best Romantic Language of all above Romantic Languages

As a Tamalian, although I have a right to personally like my own language.
But being born in England meant that Tamil was my second language.
This language is the best!

Most phonetic language with more sweetest words absolutely amazing language

32 Dutch

It offends me deeply when Dutch is labelled a harsh or abrupt tongue, for this is not the case. When spoken with the appropriate rhythmic precision, this West-Germanic language echoes to high heaven.

Dutch is beautiful when the pronounciation is good. You have a lot of differences between all Dutch dialects.

33 Icelandic

Icelandic keeps the harshness found in Scandinavian languages, but adds to it a sweet, light, and melodic sound.

34 Celtic

Except celtic isn't a language

Fokin' best

35 Old English
36 Yoruba

Ife ojo means love baby

I believe that Yoruba is the one of the most beautiful language in the world,you need to really understand it before one can get the real sense of it.

37 Telugu

This is the most melodiously and beautifully audible language in the world.
Not patriotic about a language. (I don't want to say its very old, great history, best poets or poems that doesn't matter at all)

Just listen when two telugu people are talking to each other its really rhythmic like a beautiful words put together

I live in Singapore, has been to U. S, Europe, And many Asian countries.

After comparing the audible conversation between the following languages I came to conclusion that telugu is really beautifully audible language in the world.
I Truly compared with => English (U. S & U. K), German, French, Italian, Hungarian (Europe), Dutch, In Asia => Malay, Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Philippines, Vietnamese and Japanese, and Indian subcontinent, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Kannada, malayalam, marati and punjabi.. And sinhalese, Urdu, Arabic and Russian during olympics.

Trust me I have met and just try to found rhythm in languages but telugu ...more

It is one of the most sweetest language the world ever had. The vowels sounds so sweet.. All most all the words will end with vowels which gives the language to be sweet..

In English word puke is vulgar slang for vomit but in telugu is the biggest swear word. Meaning in some words (not bad words) of other lauguages are used as swear words in telugu. It means our language is so decent that even our swear words are so gentle for all the other languages.

It is language of soul. It is easy to connect through its purity. Telugu is the best for ever. It is the one of the language having more letters-56. Poetry in telugu has its own passion of expressing. It is only language having most grammatical rules, which makes easy to understand the language. - frozen-993

38 Sicilian
39 Bulgarian
40 Lithuanian

The last of the classics. The soft enchantments of this tongue are matched by no other. Crisp consonants and sweet vowels mark this language and it is sad that it is on the decline and so often confused with other slavic dialects. Nevertheless, as long as I am able to hear these melodies I will remain satisfied.

Very beautiful and good sounding language

Really old Indo-European language from baltic group, Shame that is often mistaken with slavic.

41 Indonesian

Actually, I didn't trust with this voting. It's just about, how many people who know or use that language. LOL.

Indonesian have so much words that English or other languages don't have the meanings...
Besides, so many accent n' style in Indonesian language
And trust me... It's more complicated than any languages I've ever learn

Its simple but also complicated

1. So many words that are poetic and have a deep meaning in this language
2. Indonesian is the language of what we are reading what we write, it's one of the advantages of Indonesian, in contrast to his other languages ��in the world.
3. Indonesian has a smooth sound and if using Indonesian properly will sound intellectual and sexy

42 Urdu

You guys don't know jack. Urdu and Hindi are often mixed but Hindi is from Sanskrit. Urdu is derived from Persian, Arabic AND Sanskrit. That's why, some Hindi speakers know it. So, why Urdu isn't at least on par with Hindi on here if not higher, bewilders me. Urdu defines romantic. It's the sweetest language, like, ever, but people mix it with Hindi. Urdu poetry is world-class and there is no match against Hindi, I'm sorry.

This is sad. Urdu has been mixed and confused with Hindi and people think the romantic songs in Bollywood movies is Hindi, its Urdu. Its sad because pure Urdu is the most beautiful and romantic language ever, Urdu poetry is the best and without this language that the mughals introduced to the Indians which they proudly claim Hindi (in Bollywood) their romantic songs are nothing and neither would Urdu speakers be able to understand actual Sanskrit Hindi.

The world cannot fall any lower than proclaiming that languages like Hindi or English are above Urdu, Arabic or Persian. Urdu poetry is world class, Bollywood films are basically Urdufied from day on, the language used in the recent bollywood remake of sairat is Hindi "Hindi remake" and I can't understand the words because that isn't Urdu. Bollywood at least did that right.

What, ermygash, Urdu is number 34 are you guys ok.. To all voting for Hindi (indians) maybe look again at your bollywood industry, your love songs are nothing without Urdu and Urdu poetry. Urdu should be in the top 10 no point Urdu being on here if its gonna end up being so low lol what the hell

43 Taiwanese
44 Basque

It's a very old language with no lingustic family and historically it has influence the Spanish language.

45 Punjabi

Punjabi Is one most romantic languages where you can express your feelings in a lot of different ways. If you want to communicate passionately and appropriately there would hardly be any language which wold be better then Punjabi only if articulated properly..!

Words like "soniye"

I know Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, English and Korean but as my experiences romantic more words in Urdu as compare to among language I know

Sweet or we can say the sweetest one.

46 Sinhala

This language is the world most powerful language. With this language your can spell any word in the univere.

There are more than one words to describe love.

This is one of the best

This language has history of 3000 years. It reads as it write. It can write virtually
All the sounds in other languages have. The best proof for it's flexibility, some words can be read as upside down. What's more.

47 Kannada

Historically, many people who don't know Kannada have strived to learn it & further have involved in literary works. There are many such litterateurs in Kannada whose Mother tongues are German (Ferdinand Kittle), Tamil, Telugu, Urdu etc. That should say a lot about the beauty & attractiveness & as for the topic, the Romance of the Kannada Language. The sound created by the words is Pleasant & fresh.

I strongly believe kannada is the sweetest of all the languages...

And most oldest spoken language in the world.

It's impossible to say the feel in words. One of the most respective and lovable language in the world.

48 Welsh

My girlfriend likes it when I say romantic things to her in welsh, and she's English so.. ;) and it's sadly rarely spoken, even in Wales.. More people SHOULD speak it, but I've heard it's a very difficult language to learn.

The language of Heaven!!!

49 Hebrew

Very powerful sounding

Only hebrew h and r is not good but its so romantic

50 Latvian

Because of variety of intonations, long and short vowels, soft and rough consonants, Latvian is very melodious language. Even talking small daily things you get impression that your partner is singing.
