Worst Languages in the World

When you hear someone speaking an odd foreign language in the street you feel like laughing, but which is the worst and most useless language in the world.

The Top Ten

Chinese

Chinese just sounds horrible, especially when groups of people are talking (actually shouting) together, it sounds like dogs barking.
There is nothing emotional and expressive about it as a conversation typically involves throwing 2 or 3 nouns at each other, spliced with an adjective. Verbs aren't really used. The 'action' is inferred only. When a verb becomes neceesary, it's always 'have' or 'go.' So you don't 'watch' a movie in Chinese, you 'go to' a movie.
On the upside, with a language that has been broken down into its bare minimum on componants, learning it takes about six months (with regular practice.)

10,000 different characters in the alphabet that use complicated pictographs. Each character can have as many as 13 different meanings. Even the order that the lines are drawn is important. And I'm pretty sure 10 000 is the simplified version, wasn't the original 20,000 characters?

And that's just the written Chinese. The spoken is just as bad. Chinese is a "tonal language" which means that a word with the same pronunciation can have different meanings based on the tone it was pronounced with. Which means if you want to pose a question, you have to make the sentence "sound like" it's a question, otherwise the meaning is completely reversed. Can you imagine trying to distinguish between someone saying "I have the books" and "do you have the books? " based on the tone of the sentence?

Chinese people can't even understand the language and a normal conversation is usually riddled with "can you repeat that". They actually have to have their movies subtitled because of ...more

I comes from Singapore and I speak Chinese(Hakka Wa, one of Chinese dialects), and I don't want to analyze this question in a emotional way. I have to say that maybe Chinese is hard to learn, but it is wonderful !Taiwan, Singapore, China mainland, Hong Kong , Macau, they all do this!

Probably, the main reason I find Chinese language so annoying is that their sound are connected strongly to the bad manners of certain groups of Chinese people in my country. I have seen a lot of Chinese students speaking super loudly in a school cafeteria and start arguing in public spaces as if there are no other people around, but above all, the worst was how they spoke while their mouth full of food accompanied by a constant chewing sound.
Whenever I hear Chinese people speaking Chinese language, it makes me recall those disagreeable memories, which make me awfully annoyed. This feelings make me so perplexed at the same time because I have several good Chinese friends and ancient Chinese literary class was my favorite when I was in high school (ancient Chinese is still a required course and very popular in Japanese high school).
If their is any Chinese reading this, I want to apologize beforehand that my comment may sound a bit offensive.

Yeah, I'm chinese. Those are CHina peeps (i'm from Malaysia). they're pretty rude...

Hindi

Don't kid yourselves, Hindi is a really ugly language. Almost every consonant (and vowel) is pronounced in an unaesthetic and sloppy way. You guys need to fix your language. Make it sound crisper and it will be fine. Also, so what if it "spans cultures and dialects"? That doesn't take away from the fact that it is an absolutely ugly language. It's definitely not a graceful language. The sounds of the language remind one of the dirtiness of some places in India.
Indians themselves are the only people with the power to fix their language. So if you want Hindi off this list, make it sound more beautiful. Languages can change.

Just disgusting. The music is disgusting. Zee T.V. and all of it's variants is annoying. Every female singer sounds like they are singing the same song over and over. The fact that they draw lines through the middle of all their words is annoying. Even when a new language is learnt, then Indian accent and head bubbling is annoying.

Hindi speaking ruins the essence of Urdu which are often mixed up by people. Hindi pronounces a Z letter as a J. And a "Sh" with a "S" and it just sounds off. Imagine if their Bollywood films were like this but no because even singers like Lata, Kumar etc have learned Urdu pronunciation well so "Hindi" movies and songs can be understood by Urdu speakers. Reality is that Hindi is different from that, listen to Jana gana mana lol that is Hindi. Complete opposite of Urdu.

Tum log Hindi speakers ko marne ki baat kar rahe ho. Aisi baatein karne mein tumhe sharam nahi ati? Dub maro saalon. Randi ke pillon tum logo ko cancerr ho.

Italian

Italian is the most melodic language in the world. It is rich in sound and keeps evolving with the times.. It inebriated the senses, if one appreciates poetry. Those of you who consider this most alluring, entrancing of the Romance languages mediocre, do not know what you are talking about. It is the language of love and romance... No other can compare. It is soft, not harsh... No guttural sounds. Do not be confused by the different dialects your ear picks up... Listen to the pure Italian... It will transport you to heaven on earth. Nonetheless, it is not an easy language to learn. Those who do not speak the language are under the impression that it is easy since every letter is pronounced as seen. It is the grammar that will trip you up. So many exceptions... Once you master the language, you will want to speak it as much as possible... Amore e ciao.

To all you saying that Italian is the world's language, just need to understand Italian language is obsolete, bro trust me, try to learn something in Italian and you'll realize it's completely dumb like learning an absolute dead language like latin. Now everything is in English and better use British. Never start to learn this dumb language only used in the back kitchens of some pizzas or others Italian restaurants, only Italian people speak Italian language, never find any Italian word in the most advanced fields like new technologies, nano, biotech, genetics... The world is managed by a prevalent language named English. But if you want to play an actor as mafia guy, ok, you'll just look a loser.

Not knowing really Italian, I have found the people there not friendly and welcoming at all. Never ready to help. They are not a formal people who like to be introduced to you and they also never value politeness. Never saying Hi, hello, enjoy, thanks... Just "What do u want" like you are a kid, will get you very very far in Rome, Milan. They also speak very loudly and never tend to get in your personal space when talking. They are not a quiet but ever boisterous people. Impolite and uninformal won't get you far.

As a Romanian person who lives in Italy I can agree with the idea that this language is just horrible. As much as you might think it's actually "cute" or so, when you'll see how it actually is... it's just annoying to listen.Also people think it's melodic and I don't consider it to be anyway close to that. Going a bit off from this subject Their organization is the worst I've ever seen. The only thing I like is the environment and nothing more. Sorry to all the Italians, but this is what a foreigner thinks about your country & language.

Arabic

Yes there are Muslim terrorists, but most and I mean MOST Muslims are wonderful people. Don't let your racism spread to the kids. When a Muslim commits a terrorist attack, I do not immediately think: "Oh, it's the terrorist Muslims again, because when ever there is a school shooting in the U.S, I do not immediately think that the school shooting (which in the U.S are done by predominantly Straight White Males)"Oh, It's the disgusting Straight White Males." ". Because Arabs, Straight White Men, and most of the people Rest of the World, are wonderful people. Let's stop identity politics, because they are driving the world into a hole it cannot pull its head out of, a dirty toxic hole.

Arabic is my first language (although I'm better at English, to be honest), and reading some of these rude and hurtful comments, I feel like CRYING. They kept on saying how it's the language of terrorists and people who got to Hell, and these awful and mean stereotypes are so wrong...I don't know where to begin!
I'm only a little girl, but you people are making me feel that I'm so awful I should go commit suicide or be slaughtered or something! Yes, there are children who know this language! Yes, INNOCENT CHILDREN, and imagine how they'd react after reading this. I'm not kidding, saying this to someone about their language and religion will prompt them to kill themselves! I know this site is about sharing opinions, but not tarnishing others' beliefs! There are billions of Muslims out there, and VERY FEW are actually terrorists. I may be one, and even I am ashamed about what they done at 9/11! We Muslims would never, EVER dream of doing this and we hate the people who did those ...more

We better learn arabic because it is going to be the new european language

I have met very nice Arabic speakers, they're very friendly as people. That said, sorry but I just dislike the way Arabic sounds.

Arabic is my fourth languages after English, to be frank with you Arabic language is little complicated, however, I am fond of Arabic because of its complicity. Also, do you know that in the world only this language may use 2 parts of the brain during the learning, besides it helps to think faster if you do not believe me you may find scientistic posts about learning Arabic benefits. Please, give a try to learn arabic if it seems too hard just think as that many people failed to learn but you can do it

American English

Has no twist to it, yet very convenient as a second language for connecting with people worldwide, although not a nice language to have as a first language, its just bland.

EXCUSE ME! Let us get some clarifications.

First, all of you, do not judge a language by its sound, words, or people who say it. These happen as words from some languages are transferred to others.

Second, there is no HARDEST language. No biased opinions!

Third, do NOT make generalizations about people based on the way it sounds. I read all of these comments, and some might take offense to it. Respect culture, usage, and language. Don't say "these guys sound angry when they talk" without thinking about it.

Are we good now? Thank you!

The most counterintuitive language in the history of man. It has so many confusing rules, with just as many exceptions to those rules. Words have multiple definitions, which adds to the chaos. Two words may sound exactly the same, but will have to different spellings and definitions, like "flew" and "flu." It's the most difficult language to learn. Even Americans, many whom speak English as their primary language, butcher the hell out of it.

Full of obtuse and odd rules and exceptions to such rules. Also most Americans don't remember or know all the rules and differences between words and their uses such as : you're/your there/their/they're etc and all the double negatives people use! Elementary school taught you to not do that.(I didn't do nothing/etc) I've found most non Americans (if educated) speak and know English better than most "native" speakers in America.

German

At first German sounds confusing, ugly, and over all evil, thanks to the stereotype that all Germans are horrible people because of Hitler. Germanic people would not even love there country, or reveal their flag until their world cup victory in 2014. It is a very weird and confusing language to a native English speaker, especially when they are 15. I will say I now think that it is so beautiful and I have fell in love with the misunderstood language, culture and people. This language has inspired me to learn as much languages as I can and has also changed the way I see the world and myself. I hope I have changed some of your minds! Gehen (go) Borussia Dortmund! Habe ein super tag! (Have a great day! )

I'm German, but I was born overseas so I don't speak it well.
If you don't like the sound of it, or think it's too hard to learn... Nothing wrong with that.

But there is so much racism in the comments! The comments for the Arabic language is bad too. Germans aren't nazis, and Arabic people aren't terrorists. Grow up.

German is my native language, English is my second language. You see how fluently I speak your language? I can speak it fluently because I committed to it, hell, I stayed in America for 6 weeks to help with the learning process. We have three common words for the, Der for masculine words, das for neuter words, and die for feminine words, you have three different ways of saying the in your language, and you can't even write down those three different ways, you have the, the, and the, but they are all spelled "the", that is really confusing if you aren't a native speaker. the is used for titles, the is the general use word, and the is a slang word. And your pathetic slang, maybe German is hard for you to learn because you already speak English incorrectly? And throat disease? Are you serious? It's normal for us, I guess our accents (by the way, the Anglos and the Saxons came from our Aryan race) are too "weird" for you. Guess what pal, the English came from Deutschland in search of ...more

German is hard language to learn, I will have to spend long hours, days, years (I hope it'll be faster :)) before I will be able to communicate in any normal way. The worst thing are strict rules of construction sentence, but in the other hand it can be one of the best things in this language. It will be demanding, but while speaking I will have to construct whole idea before constructing sentence, everything will have to be said "straight to the point", with no gibberish. Straight speaking demands straight thinking, I'm sure the German is good example that humane mind made any language, but later language has strongly influence on the humand minds, way of thinking or perception of world.

Old English

Let's get something straight. Old English does NOT mean Shakespeare English or King James Bible English. Shakespeare could not understand Old English. The term "Old English" does NOT mean "English that is old"; it refers to the language that English originated from, which is often called "Anglo-Saxon", as it was spoken by the Angles and the Saxons. Shakespeare spoke early modern English, which was spoken many hundreds of years after Old English had died. If you want to see Old English, Google an untranslated version of Beowulf.

Please educate yourselves.

Haha shakespeare isn't old English! He transformed the English language! You should read works by christopher marlowe who wrote dr faustus, who was a peer and rival of shakespeare. both lived at the same time but wrote in completely different ways. Now marlowe is old English. shakespeare invented over 2000 words including crocodile! In fact tolkein who was a professor of anglo saxon at oxford hated shakespeare because he thought he ruined the English language.

When I was in 9th grade, my class had to translate Romeo and Juliet into normal English. I normally make As, but the only reason why I passed is because I got help. Only then did I realize that Shakespeare's style was incredibly stupid. Romeo and Juliet was the worst idea ever!

I wouldn't have anything against if not for the fact that some people still insist to put its words on modern English leaving you with a weird face when you encounter "the, thither, whither, hither". Just move on idiot, those words are dead. just like your dreams

French

Horrible language! It’s highly inaccurate in spelling and it’s pronunciation. It sounds like someone regurgitating on a potato which makes it horrible to hear and would make anyone’s ears bleed. French would sound way better if the spelling and pronunciation was more similar to Italian or Spanish. The sad part is that 75 million people use this repulsive language.

This language is dumb. Might be great for "Poetry's and articles" and that dramatic stuff. But it's functionality? ITS TERRIBLE. Bro trust me, try to learn something in French (like physics, or maths) and you will realize it's completely dumb. I'm sad that I'm learning such subjects in this stupid language. Like how do you expect me to grow up when EVERYTHING IS IN English. To all who say that French is the world's language (as I see some uneducated fools bragging with that) Get here. You must be living under a rock. Start by the world's popular business, "Technology" Did you see any "French" invention? No, just no. They have nothing. Absolutely nothing. (Then stupid poetry, and some little inventions in the medicine field) why the hell do you waste your time learning it then? Look if you want to learn it for business reasons. Don't EVER DO THAT TERRIBLE MISTAKE ON YOUR LIFE. And put your valuable time on mastering English. (Especially British English. American English isn't really a ...more

There are words in French that do not translate into any other language that explicitly express situation of love. For example. Retrouvailles: the feeling you get when you see someone after a long physical separation. Surely one of the less annoying language.

And when saying that 40% of French words are English, you must learn that it's the contrary, 40% (even 45% depending of sources) of English words have French origins. With around 80,000 words, and here we count only words imported directly from French. By searching correctly, you will find these facts on internet.

All the rest is just voting French annoying language because of uncultivated way of acting.

French sounds fine. It's the spelling that messes me up.

I've learned French for many years now, and I still mess up the conjugation. The verbs end differently for different subjects. For example, "jump". In French, "We jump" is "Nous sautons". "They jump" is "Ils/Elles sautent". "I jump" is "Je sautes"... I think. Conjugation for "I" confuses me. I had a teacher who says "I" should have a verb that ends with "s". Then, this year, a teacher (who I don't trust too much) says it shouldn't. Way too confusing. Plus future and past tense are different for almost each verb.

And the accents! I won't even begin with the accents.

Latin

Soulless and dead language. I took a class back in high school and kicked it after roughly a month. I don't get people who want to learn it in high school instead of Spanish or French, especially for reasons like "it's logical" or "it's the mother of all languages". If you don't intend to study history or medicine it's absolutely pointless.

Only 1 in 5 words in English come from Latin, as it is 29% Latin. Know the facts before posting things that are not true. English is 56% Germanic, not Latin.

It's a dead language. Why would you waste your time on learning it! Those kids that stress over Latin at school are idiots.

They don't learn Latin to speak it. If you speak Latin it will be easier to learn other languages and they also learn a lot about the Roman culture.

Why I have to learn this dumb dead language as well annoying as its brother: Italian (also a dead one).

Tamil

Tamil is unpleasant to the ear. It is not a language one can easily relate to. Most Tamil people now speak slang which is a terrible adulteration of a language - often with swear words spoken in bad taste. Many literary works in Tamil have been recognised and taught in Indian schools today, unfortunately not the same quality exists today. Tamil movie songs sound like noise. Being half Tamil myself I feel embarrassed when a Tamil person speaks of Tamil as though no other language exists in this world. People from tamilnadu must be more welcoming to other Indian states and stop being narrow minded.

B.S., it definitely sounds pleasant and the flow of their words is amazingly sweet. Those who heard tamil and criticize it, must have heard those dumb scumbags from Chennai speaking it. Listen to actual tamil audios, scriptures and hymns & get your perspectives changed. This is the mother language for Malayalam and I can tell you, this is one sound indian language you cannot despise.

It is very old and great languages in the world, if we go through history we can understand easily. So we have to give first place always in the world for Tamil languages olny. Everyone has to be proud to be give first place to Tamil. Who speaks Tamil in the world like Tamilnadu in India, Tamileelam in srilanka, Singapore, malaysiya, malathivu etc.
We have to encourage to others to learn Tamil.

You write so much good about the language and voted for the worst language. Read the title before you vote and comment.

Quite frankly, the harshest sounding language in the world. The Tamil language is an abomination to all other spoken languages in the world. A dog howling at the moon or a donkey braying sounds musical compared to listening to Tamil

The Contenders

Korean

Korean writing system is very easy to learn. It is brilliant. Korean as a spoken language isn't tonal like Chinese so that makes it much easier than Chinese. The fact that Korea has very high literacy says something about Korean being a good language. Korean is pleasant to listen to.

The problem I have had learning Korean is just me. For some reason I have trouble with it.

Everything sounds so weird, and instead of separate consonants, everything seems to be stringed into one word. They also have to add these suffixes to everything. Practically everyone's name has "Kim" or "Un" in it. Instead of stuff like "ham yung bin chow", it's more like "hamyungbinchow-un". It sounds unpleasent too. They also speak very quick, and I am not fond of their "K-pop". Japan's Japanese J-pop is much better.

Seriously I don't understand how anyone could like Korean language.

It sounds harsh, rude, and angry not to mention super whinny.

I feel like slapping them every time I hear them. And they have no manner and don't really mind their environment when they talk with this barbaric language. So annoying

Not only does Korean look alien, it sounds horrible. In contrast to Japanese, which sounds and looks smooth and natural, Korean sounds and looks robotic and soulless. It looks nothing like a language from our planet. Why isn't this at the top?

Hungarian

The best word to describe Hungarian is gurgling, but not the pleasant river-like gurgling -more like the kind of a sound you'd hear a frog make before choking on its own saliva. The language also has an annoying, whining tone to it, and that makes it sound like the people speaking it would be constantly complaining. Hungarian speakers tend to spit a lot while speaking too, and that's really not a miracle considering all the frog-like croaks they have to produce all day long. Hungarian is a lot worse than Finnish or Korean or the other languages rated higher on this list - just try sitting in a bus full of gurgling and whining Hungarian speakers, and see if you come back sane.

Whether it is or isn't beautiful I don't know.
Hard to learn for sure, just like maths.

But it's one of the most logical languages out there, which can assimilate and conjugate any word even foreign ones. Good, clean grammar with little to no exceptions. It pronounces letters differently which doesn't help the foreigners who try to learn it.
It is praised by foreign linguists like; George Bernard Shaw, Ove Berglund and Jakob Grimm in case you don't believe me.
FYI: 90% of the bad reviews are coming directly from south of the Hungarian border. :^)

As far as I am concerned? All Slavic languages are positively ugly... Exception; Romanian, which is a close cousin of Italian... All Asian languages are just as ugly... French may sound sophisticated but it sounds as harsh and barbaric as German... Japanese is scary-sounding and Chinese gives me the creeps... Then again, I am very one-sided... Forza Italia.

Hungarian is one of the most beautiful languages in the world... And for the Hungarian, it is the most beautiful of all languages... Sad to see a lack of civility and common courtesy on this post...

Mandarin

Chinese is already on the list and to the normal person, there is no difference between the two, when Chinese is actually 2-3 different languages and Mandarin is the "official" language of the country.
The grammar is actually common sense and is not hard to pick up on
The characters are near impossible and the tones are hard, but really, with practice it gets quite easy.

Didn't realize there's a specific Mandarin option. As mentioned in the Chinese option, it has terrible structure, no base letters to form words and very unrefined altogether. It sounds horrible to the ears as well.

Yes definitely Mandarin. Terrible in every way. You can't even speak in Mandarin (or Chinese for that matter) without looking like an imbecile, an idiot or an unlikeable person. Plus you con't really type quickly in Chinese (in general) either.

OK, honestly Cantonese sounds harsher.

But both are much too hard. However, it doesn't sound like "Ching Chong Chin Chan". I speak a bit of Mandarin. Enough to understand some conversations, but I can hardly read and write it.

Vietnamese

The best word to describe Vietnamese is gurgling, but not the pleasant river-like gurgling -more like the kind of a sound you'd hear a frog make before choking on its own saliva. The language also has an annoying, whining tone to it, and that makes it sound like the people speaking it would be constantly complaining. Vietnamese speakers tend to spit a lot while speaking too, and that's really not a miracle considering all the frog-like croaks they have to produce all day long. Vietnamese is a lot worse than Finnish or Korean or the other languages rated higher on this list - just try sitting in a bus full of gurgling and whining Vietnamese speakers, and see if you come back sane.

I recently reacted terribly towards the Vietnamese because of something this Vietnamese customer did to me at work. When I served this Vietnamese customer at work, he didn't even say a single 'hi'. He continued speaking Vietnamese on his mobile which totally pissed me off. But in hindsight I now see this guy lacking the common sense to simply put his mobile away and saying hi. Like how hard would it be to excuse himself to his chat buddy that he is being served so that he can return to his phone conversation a minute later. It's shown me that manners matter a lot. If you act badly in public, it just becomes so much easier for people to form prejudices or judgements against your race no matter how inaccurate it might be.

I'm 100% Vietnamese and I must say that Viet grammars suck. Sometimes (basically all the time), when I do my homework I just can't understand my own language because the sentence is so long and confusing. It doesn't get to the point or what it trying to say. I saw others countries test paper and their sentences were short, get straight to the point, no confusing or headache trying to solve the sentence instead of the question.

I speak it and even I think it sounds awful, I live with a Vietnamese mom and dad that would speak it all day. So imagine that, hearing the language 24/7. My mood plummets every time I hear my mom speak Vietnamese. Her voice is ugly and raspy, and she would yell at me in Vietnamese with the most disgusting voice ever. But it doesn't sound nearly as bad when other people that I don't know speak it.

Swedish

Indeed! I am 1/4 Swedish and I can agree----it's pretty worthless. My cousin R studied it extensively and lived there for a year...when she got back to the states she thought she was God. Unless you're into Abba and shopping at Ikea, I can't think of any place such language would come in handy. I'm proud to say that my majority of ancestry comes from England and Wales. I would visit those two places anytime.

An ancient leftover from danish "colonial" time, swedes have developed the manly viking language to a something that sounds like a bad musical.. Their ancestors should be turning in their graves..

Swedish has much less puns than English that you won't confuse for example orange with color or fruit.

Almost as stupid and rude as their Viking ancestors, horrible-sounding and ugly when written.

Dutch

Dutch is lovely. It is quite a harsh, guttural language but beautiful all the same in its own way. By the way, I am a native English speaker who is learning (or attempting to learn) Dutch. I love how you can immediately tell if a word is Dutch because it's so distinctive from other languages, like the sentence Nee, ik ben geen hoogleraar in de geschiedenis, which means 'no, I am not a professor of history'. Brilliant.

Flemish sounds very nice, the whole "Netherlandish" language is very interesting to me, but Dutch pronounciation makes the Dutch one of the most horrible language for me (maybe Arabic of Hebrew sound worse). I know that Flemish and Dutch are technically dialects of the same language, but for differences in speaking I would rather tell them apart.

I'm dutch and I hate my language, it should be at least in the top 5 ugliest languages in the world.
I wish English became our official language, everybody in the Netherlands can already speak it so why don't we stop speaking our ugly language.

I cannot consider a conservation in this language serious. In addition to seemingly consisting mainly in gargling, this incredibly ridiculous mixture of English and German wizardrously manages to make any person sound like a drunk elk.

Punjabi

Punjabi is hilarious and an awesome language! By the way, WHO THE HELL started this list. None of the languages are ugly or "THE WORST". Every language is beautiful in their own way. Every language has its own swear words. Every language is written gracefully. Every language has beauty and grace. Every language is spoken by us. I am realyy disappointed in humanity. We have that much narrow brains to go on making a list about the worst languages in the world. As if there wasn't sadness and violence and hatred in this world already. Stop trying to make more hatred and violence and sadness. Alright?!

Uggg, it sounds like someone made this language by bashing a feral cat around by the tail inside of a barrel fire.

The only thing that can make it worse is if a high pitched young woman is talking to other high pitched young women and they get all excited about something stupid. Then it's like they are summoning Alvin and the Chipmunks.

I'm a punjabi and it's not annoying language specially abusing someone in punjabi has its own fun.

I am Punjabi and I understand most dialects like Braj Bhasha/Dogri/Hindi/Hindko and to be honest Punjabi may have many swear words and curses but it is also a very beautiful language.

Klingon

To those who learn Klingon, please pour your time and energy into learning a real language. You could learn French and speak with a huge percentage of the world. You could learn Koine Greek and read the New Testament. You could learn Mandarin and impress everyone as you read the decorative characters at the Chinese restaurant. However, you are learning Klingon. Congratulations, you can talk to a few Star Trek geeks and nobody will understand you.

It's essentially English with a different word order and phonology. Nothing special, and odds are you won't find much in the way of conversation if you do manage to learn it.

Klingon is a waste of time, legend has it that one person wasted his time learning Klingon and failed his tests, but hey, now he can takk to fictional aliens.

I think this is the main language of South Sudan? Can someone correct me if that's wrong?

Klingon is actually a language that originated in Star Trek. The official language of South Sudan is actually English, but they recognise about 60 other languages.

Polish

This is the worst language ever. Has no pros and only cons. It sounds very harsh and ugly, unlike Russian. It is not structured or organized well, like German or English. It is very sloppy and poorly organized. I do not know why anyone would want to speak it.

Except for the seven noun cases and the overabundance of "z"s, it's a beautiful language once you learn the phonetics and grammar and can speak fluidly (yes, fluidly, not fluently, although that is the goal).

Polish sounds like someone is talking over a lawn mower. I personally hate the way it sounds. I speak Slovak too. Slovak is very similar, but sounds so much nicer.

Polish language is not the worst language and it doesn't sound like schshshchsssch, I don't have any idea why you think so. We don't use sh in every word.

Bulgarian

Bulgarian should not even be a language. It is your basic Slav language that became simple due to Greek and Tatar/Turk influences. So it became more simple because too many people that these Slavs absorbed can't speak the proper Slavic language so this is now Bulgarian.

You now try to steal Bulgarian language too. Good job my brainwashed slavo-Bulgarian friends.

A copy of Chinese language

Bulgarian and Chinese are two completely different languages

Bulgarians are speaking a Macedonian dialect

Spanish

Wow, Spanish is one of the most beautiful languages in the world! European Spanish culture (I've never been lucky enough to visit South America) is so interesting, traditional, vibrant and exciting! I'm English but I'm studying Spanish and Arabic at Univeristy. I'm shocked at the sheer ignorance and hatred of some people towards this highly passionate language and its people. To say that it is 'trashy' is pure naïvety. Every language has an idiomatic slant, but as someone who has studied formal Spanish to degree level, there is NOTHING 'trashy' about the Spanish language. I'm shocked and saddened by some of the offensive comments posted here. Learn some manners and go and get an education, for goodness sake.

The grammar is excessively formal (according to some, answering a question with just "si" or "no" is dismissive or rude), words tend to be long, word genders convey no information, sounds are limited (I suspect rolling Rs is to make up for how few sounds are used in the language) and prepositions are vague ("en" means "in" and "on". If you were considering taking Spanish, consider Latin instead, then you'll be able to get around any Romance language.

Why would anyone want to speak such a horrible language? It makes absolutely no sense! The language itself is full of unnecessary rules and pronunciation! French although not rated as such is by far the easiest language to learn and the best sounding language. French is spoken much more more around the world than Spanish and by much more of the developed world.

It's not as flexible as English is; you can bend and play with the rules of our English language because, put simply, it's the most advanced in the world. Languages become more advanced as they combine to create modern tongues (super-languages). English is a combination of the entirety of Romance and Germani, therefore it is the most advanced. Spanish is a trashy, watered-down version of Latin.

Urdu

I don't even think that Urdu is the worse language at all I think it must be deleted for #top20.. it doesn't have more than 8 or 9 abuses.. or I am adding one thing more that it is gentlemen speaking decent language which doesn't have commen with any other language even Hindi..
I think if Urdu became the an inter-national language no can ever think abut the jackass English language whatsoever. because there is no chance of misguidance on this beautiful language it is religious language with no hurting word in it.. yeah it is lil difficult for learning the accent and grammar

I love it. its beautiful so are the people. They are simple and kind and their food is just amazing! and people who say terrorists please open your eyes and see who is the real terrorists. :/ I hate when people who know nothing act like they know everything and get fooled so easily. Anyhow Urdu is beautiful. There is no language that isn't. And there is the good and the bads everywhere so stop the being so judgy when u know nothing. And yes I am an #ArabGirl

When Muslims entered India as traders, they needed language for communication, both Hindus and Muslims of the northern India created Urdu as a derivation from Hindi and Punjabi with Arabic script.

Urdu is not a copy of Arabic idiots! Pushto is what the terrorist in Pakistan speak idiots! Urdu is just like Hindi, a beautiful language

Well said. It isn't even related to Arabic; it just has many loanwords.

Slovak

Most dusgusting language in the world. Slovaks did the impossible: they stole czech language and made it even more annoying and ugly.

Worst language ever

I'm slovak and this language is hard for me enough! :D

This is beautiful language. YOU! YOU TWO! TAKE BACK WHAT YOU SAID! YOU HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT SLOVAK LANGUAGE! (stupid people, they don't know, what they are doing)

Filipino

Sounds like a pack of hyenas over a kill. Extremely irritating to hear.

So, what's the different with Tagalog?

Worst lanaguage ever, specially in cruise ships

African American Vernacular English

This is barely a language. It's like saying American English and British English are two different languages, they are not. Anyone who speaks any kind of English can understand American English, British English, AAVE. They are all one language, English. You don't take classes for AAVE. This "language" is mostly glorified by social justice warriors on tumblr who will defend anything that black people do or say even if some black person starts killing every living thing in sight (yes, social justice warriors are "against" racism by allowing dark skinned people get away with anything while shaming the light skinned for existing. No one that I know likes social justice warriors). I am not against black people, almost all that I know are completely normal people. AND NONE OF THEM THAT I KNOW SPEAK THIS "LANGUAGE".

I love black culture, but damn, this accent/dialect is really annoying and unintelligible, fortunatelly not every black speak like that.

First allow me to say that I am part black myself, but I truly abhor the way many of them, us, speak. Often I have been berated by black Americans the moment they find out I am mixed since I do not speak 'like a black person'. I despise this form of English and often cringe when I hear it. Ebonics indeed. Utter nonsense.

Given a modicum of legitimacy when the term "Ebonic" was coined, this collective body of lazy slang and code is perpetuated in American culture as something almost positive. It is maddening trying to converse with some people on an intelligent level... Ya know what I'm saying?
