Is Polish amongst the best-sounding languages in the world?
Every language has its own melody and it depends on person which language sounds right to his ear. Just like with music.
As a Polish native speaker I can say Polish sounds probably as too noisy but I was told by many foreigners that Polish sounds very nice. Well, you see :).
On many occasions I was aproached by an unknown people who were pretty interesting in finding out my language origin. Polish language is loud, so sometimes people could think that Polish people are arguing instead of talking. At least we can be heard not like, for example Vietnamese, their language must sound like is coming from underground, especially when women are speaking. That's what I was told. Not impressive.
I like the most sound of French
and the French native speaker accent when trying to speak English . It sounds marvelous. Nothing can bit it :). First place
I don't like sound of German, I just can't stand it, sounds too rough. Also, I don't like weird sound of Asian languages like Mandarin, Japanese or Vietnamese.
When I hear Russian or Ukrainian I am about to explode with laughter , these languages sound so funny and to add I can understand them; same with Czech and Slovakian or Serbian and Croatian. These languages sound nice to me in general, much softer than Polish.
I found Spanish language annoying and Italian sounds vulgar for me- in both languages the speakers sound like in a big hurry, so they need to speak as quick as possible and that's making me nervous :)
English languge sound nice in general but depends who speaks and with what accent. Not all of the English accents sound nice in the UK. In America, some accents are nice and some are really wierd. As a child I've always liked sound of Australian English
, so second place
New Zealand English sounds funny :) but nice, same with South African English .
So I'll give Polish
language third place
, because I like my language and it sounds familiar to me:)
