      Post The Most Beautiful European Language

      Please don't do the poll unless you have heard all of the listed languages.

      Not many people know Romanian though, so there's some music on the second page

      Hi busher

      This thread is not in the proper forum. Perhaps it'd be better in the main lounge area.

      I'll have to vote French though
      Things are not as they seem

      I like Romanian because it flows well. And they can say sentences that'd be long in English with only a few words.

      Ex:
      English:The coffee is pleasing to me. 6 words
      Romanian: ╬mi place cafeaua. 3 words

      English: I saw him at the gas station. 7 words
      Romanian: L-am vad la gara. 4 words

      But a lot of languages do that...

      Raccourcis de clavier ne fonctionnent pas? Aussi, mon Franšais est pathetique. :/ J'apprends parler Franšais.

      Not quiet sure what you meant to say That approximately will translate into

      Shorten of keyboard doesn't work? Also, my french is pathetic. I learn to speak french.

      My french isn't too good either, I had to look up Raccourcis.

      I don't know how one would say the first part, the second part would be: J'apprends a parler du francais. You left out a few prepositions

      Also, I don't know the keyboard shortucts, I only know this one because i use it at work 

      Eww...is that all i can choose from? Spanish is the most beautiful of those languages, but only in its latin american forms. I am almost fluent in it so i guess im kind of biased

      no option for Slovak (I'm bias) so will have to go with French. Although my Dad has a house in Romania, never been there though, and never heard the language, although my Dad speaks it so couldn't say.

      'The most beautiful european language"?

      Do you realise the list doesn't represent even half of the languages spoken in Europe?

      Lol sorry... out of the list. Unless is there a way to put in more options?

      And I didn't think that anyone would vote for some of the lesser known ones too...

      I don't get the fascination with French. It has to be the black sheep of the Romance language family...well, except maybe Portuguese. On top of sounding snooty and high-strung (based on my own experiences with French speakers, not the pop culture image of the French), its phonetics make absolutely no sense whatsoever; the simple logic of pronouncing what is spelled/vice-versa does not apply. It's worse than English, and that's saying a lot. (Of course, English spelling is screwed up in the first place because of French's influence.)

      I choose German, personally, although Russian comes in a close second. It flows gracefully, follows its own spelling rules perfectly (with the obvious exception of foreign loanwords), and simply sounds cool. It's a lot like Old English was before French influence came and ruined it.

      I love Italian. The way it sounds, it's clarity of it's vowels and connsonents and yet it's lilt lends it that romantic quality. I've been to Venice, Italy and with all the musical sounds put into phrases, it's almost like singing to me.
