Most beautiful language

spanish is one of the ugliest languages in existence. The way they scream and so repelling. ...and everything is like ending on "cha" or "chos". disgusting.

Actually, I shall amend to the "staccatos" point. I would easily hate anything resembling that type of music too, it's just that the style isn't necessarily limited to a limited amount of Spanish speakers - of course you have the English rappers, who have limited enunciation and sometimes awful sounding, and the Portugese rappers, which can sound disgusting as well.

The worse to be found in any language I know would be English heavy death metal rock, like Pantera or Dying Fetus.
Chinese is soothing to me and is perhaps the main reason why I became so involved with Chinese culture in the first place. It has a nice mellow flow compared to the say the more harsh consonant stops of German.
Chinese is a more compact language. Meaningless noise words like articles and prepositions are virtually absent, as are syllables indicating almost equally meaningless inflections. As a result it takes fewer syllables to express an idea in Chinese than in most other languages: About 15% compared to English and French (probably the most compact of the Indo-European family) by my own informal reckoning, which would make it about 30% compared to Spanish and maybe 35-40% for Italian. As a result, the language is spoken somewhat more slowly--or far more slowly if you're talking about Italian. (After all there's a limit to how fast your brain can produce the thoughts). That makes it easier for a foreign student to follow the sentences, and it also gives it that "nice mellow flow" you're talking about. Furthermore, the fact that tones are phonemic prevents Chinese speakers from animating the tone of their voice to express feelings. This gives it an even smoother flow, as well as requiring feelings to be expressed in words. Instead of a narrow range of tones to tell you how they feel, Chinese are naturally guided into using thousands of words to do it. It is much more expressive language.
Hmmm. As a speaker of Spanish and English I'd have to say that FRENCH is the most beautiful sounding... followed closely by spanish. English, however, tops them all in its color and deapth.

Beauty is in the ear of the... of the... be-listener? :)

Listening to one foreign language spoken by a native speaker of a different foreign language can be very entertaining. I don't think I've ever heard anything quite as lovely as the Swedish flight attendants on an SAS airliner speaking German.
The most beautiful language is, of course, French...

comes after it persian ( Farsi )...

this is a famous ordering... it depends on how much consonants are less pronounced, I guess...

Personally, I think all language are beautiful. It sounds beautiful when an African speaks Afrikkan, so does a French, and so does an Arabian. Any language I don't understand, and sounds foreign, is beautiful to me. But when it comes to culture, India beats everybody hands down. Not that crapy mistake in America, the real India, the one with the oldest religion in the world, most beautiful scenery, and wonderful enchantements.
The language in which there is "denouement," the poor spelling of "denouncement." The language which has no brutal words like "блядь" but can go as pleasant as "lady" or "sir."
Very Beautiful languages:

Portuguese = a very sweet and poetic language
Italian = a beautiful accent
French = nobly
Greek = very beautiful when spoken and when written
Farsi (Persian) = exotic, beautiful accent and beautiful writting form

Special cases:

English = beautiful in some places, extremely ugly in others (the Texan English is terrible in my opinion, while the brittish is very beautiful).
Spanish = due to its poor phonemes and strong accent, it can sound ugly. But when spoken slowly and poetically, it can be very beautiful.
Arabic = It can be ugly when spoken fast, but very beautiful when sung and written.
Japanese = This is the opposite of Arabic. Beautiful when spoken, ugly when sung.

But, being ugly or beautiful, all languages are interesting and perfect to express yourself.
Math is the best language after silence.

Hmmm let's see... I love listening to Welsh and Russian, as spoken by women. I also like to speak French, it's just so much fun... I also think that many British accents are very beautiful, especially on girls...
Gaeilge (Irish). Easily the most beautiful language on the planet. Best language to sing in. Seriously this is the language that inspired all of the sing songy languages in fantasy novels like Lord of the Rings.

Forum over.

The most beautiful languages in the world by my opinion are:
