Top Ten Romantic Languages


The Top Ten

1 Spanish

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...

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.

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.

Spanish is by far the most useful of the romance languages in terms of how many native speakers you can communicate with and business that you can conduct. I'm glad that it is my second language. - pittlc8991

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

3 Italian

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

The biggest turn on language and is very widely known along with French and Spanish

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.

I am on a tear reading romance novels with Italian men in the stories.

4 Portugese

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!

As a German I find European Portuguese to be one of the best languages in the world, but I'm not very found of brazilian portuguese for some reason to me it sounds like a retarded italian trying to speak spanish lmfao

5 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!

English isn't a romance language? - pittlc8991

6 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

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

7 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!

Very flowy

8 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.

The most romantic language all over the history of humanity before and after the Islam. You just need to dive into a little bit to see the immense capabilities offering this language (check Arabic poetry).

9 Romanian

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

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.

A sharp, yet smooth and amazing language. The idiosyncrasies and various influences make it truly a one-of-a-kind and beautiful language~

Beautiful and Romantic. Saying my love sounds super romantic "Dragostea mea"

10 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.

Obviously this site is tilted toward western languages. Most people here are westerners who aren't familiar with eastern languages. How else can anyone pick English or Greek ahead of Korean? Lol. I mean German is related to English but it rated lower. And my ears dislike the sound of gutteral languages like Arabic or Hebrew. My throat hurts trying to pronounce it.
Meanwhile I find Korean to be extremely expressive and romantic smooth sounding language. Korean is pronounced just way it's written unlike many western languages. And I found it easy to learn it only has 24 alphabets. I heard it's the most scientific language in the world.

The Contenders

11 Latin

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

Dulce et decorum est, uxori carae mori
It is a sweet and seemly thing to die for one's dear wife

Enough said.

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.

Its awesome

13 German

Amazing language, so many different words to express oneself.

The most romantic language in my opinion.. Sexy accent. The way germans roll the letter 'r' is just so attractive to me!

Sexy vocabulary, for me a mix out of Japanese and Arabic!

This one should be at the top, the only reason it isn't is because of the stereotype on it that it's just big and loud.

14 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. !

Read hafez poems. that is enough I guess.

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

Tagalog is really a romantic language... Like... "Mahal kita" and filipinos are also very serious while saying those words... Even I speak more than one language... I still consider tagalog the most romantic language... For me
It's more romantic than Korean..

I can say that Tagalog always has new words. Example(2017): Petmalu, lodi = malupit and Idol

16 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.

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.

18 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 melodic, soft and beautiful languages in the world. You must to listen to Ukrainian songs and you would definitely understand what I am talking about.
