There are a lot of languages spoken in the world from which many languages are very beautiful. In this article, we have mentioned 10 most beautiful languages in the world including 3 hardest languages to learn. (Chinese, Arabic, Finnish)
1 – Italian
Starting with something most people can agree on, the language of Dante, da Vinci, and Pavarotti. Even the spoken version of Italian sounds like a song to non-native speakers, making it one of the most popular languages in the arts, opera, and, of course, romance. Italian sounds more passionate than any other language.
2 – Arabic
Perhaps the most beautiful aspect of Arabic is its alphabet and the calligraphy that has developed over thousands of years. In Islam, Arabic script has always been considered an art form of great reverence since it is the liturgical language of the religion. Arab poetry also showcases Arabic language’s aural beauty. Those who haven’t studied the instrument may find the sounds strange, but if you listen to it, you’ll be blown away.
3 – Czech
Slavic languages have something uniquely wonderful about them, especially the westernmost branch, Czech. It has one sound completely unique only to it, that of the ‘rzh’ sound in the middle of the composer Antonin Dvoák’s name. It adds some spice to the language. Possibly because of its location at the crossroads of West and East in Central Europe, it sounds less Slavic and more like a unique mixture of Slavic and the other, more Germanic language groups nearby.
4 – Wolof
Languages such as Wolof are spoken primarily in Senegal, Gambia, and Mauritania, which are all West African countries. A number of poets and artists have recorded their songs and poetry in this language, making it a lingua franca of sorts in the region. A Senegalese artist created its own alphabet in the 1960s, and some still use it today. Whether it’s spoken or in song, you’ll enjoy hearing this language; better yet, rap translates particularly well into Wolof.
5 – Finnish
When J.R.R. Tolkien created Quenya, or High Elvish, he was inspired by Finnish, a Finno-Ugric language of the Nordic language family. The connection between the two is evident upon listening to them both. Possibly the closest comparative to Finnish is Estonian, and (ironically) the most distant is Hungarian. In addition to its lilt and staccato quality, Finnish is surprisingly good for music and poetry, as well as for reggae.
6 – Welsh
Even though it is spoken natively only on the island that English came from, Welsh has proven formidable against the sometimes unstoppable tide of English. It has been revitalized over the past several decades, which can be a model for other endangered minority languages around the world. The Welsh language is now officially spoken in Wales.
7 – Cherokee
Among those native to the southern parts of North America is the Cherokee people, whose native language is Cherokee. Because Cherokee has its own writing system since the mid-19th century, considerable Cherokee-language literature has been published. According to Sequoyah, each symbol stands for a full syllable in his syllabary. Cherokee was threatened with extinction in the past, but many young Cherokees are now learning the beautiful language and helping to keep it alive.
8 – Chinese
There are innumerable dialects of Chinese, but they all share the same written characters – something worth marveling at. Rather than learning 25-45 symbols that represent sounds, like we do when we read and write, a Chinese speaker will learn thousands upon thousands of characters that each represent a word. In addition, Chinese characters have been passed down through generations, always closely linked to the culture. Their history, complexity, and difficulty make them a true thing of beauty. A similar art form to Arabic, Chinese calligraphy has long been highly prized.
9 – Bengali
A lot of languages are spoken in India, but from the different languages, Bengali is one of the most beautiful languages spoken on the Indian Subcontinent, and India is famous for its linguistic diversity.
This writing style is stunning to begin with, and its flow is what Rabindranath Tagore, a world-renowned poet, used to create his art. Several students lost their lives protesting for the right to use Bengali when the state mandated that everyone use Urdu during their studies and throughout their lives. Bengali is still spoken by about 230 million people in India and Bangladesh because of the stand they took.
10 – English
English is a beautiful language, isn’t it? Languages with similar histories are few and far between. It was developing as a Germanic language at the turn of the millennium, and then the Normans invaded, bringing their language with them and influencing what was then Old English.
Today, English is the largest lingua franca in the world, allowing people from all cultures to communicate in their native language, extensively studied language, or newly acquired language.
