I am glad we agree that German is the true romance language.

I mean the guttural "Ich liebe dich" is the epitome of I love you. It cant sound and better.

Those French, Italian and Spanish have no ground against the true romance language!


...except Romance languages are the languages that are really just corrupted Latin (French, Spanish, Italian), or the language the Romans speak.

The harsh gutturals and staccato of German does have quite an appeal, though, I suppose.


I know that very well. I took many English courses as basics in Uni. I was making a joke about just that.

Do I need to add a /joke at the end of my post?

I don't like the sound of Spanish much. English, my native language, at times sounds ugly when people use annoying slang. There is some slang I'm ok with and also sometimes I use slang jokingly. But when it is used in everyday conversations it can be awful. Japanese is such a beautiful language to me though.

Not so much ugly, but i find it very abrasive, would be the Germanic languages. It sounds so angry. A person could be saying "look at this cute picture of a puppy" and you still have the urge to beg them not to hurt you.

Languages I like best would be Gaelic and Arabic. Both have a very lyrical sound to them, especially Arabic; just normal conversation sounds like they are singing, I think that is pretty.

And even though I speak it, I also find English to be very abrupt. I really do like languages that are more fluid.

There's no such thing as a language called "Chinese". It is a set of different languages, such as Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien, Shanghainese, Hakka, etc.


Mandarin is often referred to as "Chinese" apparently.

It's the Chinese language most people are exposed to, followed mostly by Cantonese.

I believe German culture and history involves a little more than just the Nazi's.... a lot more...

English and some Middle Eastern languages sound a bit harsh to me. Chinese is also a weird one and just sounds odd. English though by far sounds the strangest to me at times (and English is my native language and the only one I speak). I just don't think it's the best language for expressing thoughts. Spanish is also hit and miss for me and it depends on who's speaking it. Real Spanish sounds fine. U.S. schoolbook Spanish sounds messed up. I find many Asian languages beautiful though. I'm usually fine with French and they pretty much make everything they say sound cool or fancy. I don't know if I'd say I really hate any languages, some of them just sound a bit harsher to my ears than others.

Oh yeah, I really like Thai. They always seem so soft spoken and their language is beautiful. Latin is also a very beautiful language and I wish English could convey even a fraction of what can be conveyed with Latin. I wish I could read/write Latin and Japanese. Maybe some German, Russian and Spanish too.
