Those here who love the Scottish accent should spend some time in Dundee, you might change your mind.

I agree with the earlier poster who said Finnish had a lovely sound. Estonian does as well.

In my part of the world there are some who speak Scottish Gaelic which I also fine very pleasing to the ear.

Just French really. Russian sometimes, but it can sound whiny as well. No, beautiful is not the right word for Russian.

Turkish, and Russian in second place. Turkish sounds really fascinate me, and the Slavic languages in general.
Anyway, I could find beauty in every language of the world, I think.

South American Spanish (Argentinian and Chilean), Italian, Thai, Finnish.
Japanese can also be very beautiful. Just as long as the speakers of these languages aren't angry or frustrated.. they're gorgeous.

Mexican Spanish, on the other hand, really bothers me and I cannot figure out why.

Maybe it's because I'm half-Filipino, but I like the sound of Tagalog (when certain people speak it) Like the woman in the beginning of this clip


YouTube - MMK "Car" 1 of 7

I also like the sound of any Polynesian language, and Portuguese. Those are the most beautiful languages to me.

I definitely go for Portuguese. I find it has a sensual smoothness Spanish lacks.

Italian would come in second.
