Yes British English... I love their accent and pronunciation. I also think they have wider vocabulary, they use more uncommon words.

I like the Romance languages. It evokes a lot of pastoral and romantic imagery from those countries. By Romantic I mean the 1800s romanticism stuff or even Renaissance and medieval period images where great artists and thinkers created and discussed topics that were important to the day as they sipped wine in their vineyards. Stuff like that.

I love Romance Languages too.. They are top on my list. I just didn't include Romanian as I have never heard it yet.

Well I won't argue with that. I frequently have to dumb myself down most of the time.

it sounds a bit like a mix of Italian and some slavic language. Like Italian and Serbo-Croatian, it has that south European vocal inflection.

Romanian is probably my favourite language. I also love Italian, English, Icelandic, Greek, Japanese and Swedish/Norwegian.
