Sexy are only European languages (or languages of European origin) IMO: French, Italian, English, German (can be very sexy and interesting sounding, if spoken in a softly way), Latin American Spanish, Swedish, Portuguese
Exotic and beautiful sounding languages: Turkish (just like 1001 Night ), Persian, Japanese, Thai
Ugly Languages: Chinese, Vietnamese, Danish (although the country and its people are great), Finnish, Russian, Polish, Serbian, Slavic languages in general, Korean
Anything but Russian, German or any Eastern European nations.
Romanian is an Eastern European language but it's a Romance language just as Italian (very much alike... no wonder 2 million Romanians live in Italy and another 1 million in Spain) YouTube - Romanian Language Translations
I like Romanian, English (British or American) and Italian is fine...
I hate German (worst language ever?) ...but it sucks because I have to speak it since 80% of the companies in my field (manufacturing) are German. And I also hate French (I learned it in school and it sucked)
Well....I'd like to cast my vote for Efik. It is a tonal language, properly speaking, it is not a spoken language, it is a sung language. Almost every word has five tonal levels, the definition changes with each of the notes in which the word is sung. There is only one word that does require a tonal change, and the word is usually pronounced in the tone that corresponds best to the general conversation, that word is "Water" or "Mung-o" Interesting, language reflects what it normally sees. As a guest in someones house, stay for a few hours talking, then take my leave to go back to the camp, invariably they would sing out "Sanga sung oh" which means "walk slowly" a gentle reminder that most of the snakes are poisonous, and lethal. AND, the "OH" at the end of a word is often quasi-operatic.
^ I agree. Thai sounds nice but when the guys speak it, they don't sound manly at all. Too bad they have some of the most handsomest Asians (well, most I seen are the half-breeds though). And Hangul sounds melodic, but is very annoying when they talk loudly as if they are fighting and shouting at each other.
