I like the sound of most foreign languages, my favorite being Japanese.

Least favorites are Dutch and Polish so far.

Well articulated North Italian (Tuscan). It is the second most beautiful language in the world after French.

PS. Don't tell the French that I said that.

Are there any languages, other than your own, that you like to hear spoken, when on vacation?
French, without a doubt. While I haven't found the French people to be very friendly (and that's an understatement if there ever was one), I do love their language.

I can definitely understand people thinking that German is "not pleasant to the ear." I don't think it's a very pretty-sounding language. It's the only language other than English that I can speak just a bit. It's not accurate to call it a "guttural" language, though. "Guttural" would imply that the sounds are formed in the back of the mouth, or even the throat. That simply is not the case at all with German.
