    Phonetically I dont know. I like the sound of German, some people said its ugly but I disagree, its very soft yet serious. Dutch is like a more crude version of German, I dont think its ugly like alot of French speakers in Belgium do, but I think its sounds silly when spoken, and it doesnt have a very extensive or interesting literary history. As a written language I love English, probably because I understand all the nuances and stuff best. Im surpirsed noone mentioned Chinese, as its probably the most beautiful now that I think of it, Japanese sounds more cosmpolitan and useful, but less artistic. Hebrew, Greek and Russian Im not too crazy about. Turkish seems like its useful in the sense its easy to remember sayings and stuff but when it spoken it sounds extremely silly and goofy. Spanish I like, because its so expressive, I find Italian to be a bit more of a refined but less "feel good" version of spanish. I think French is pretty but sounds rather mawkish when spoken.

    People didn't seem so overly fond of German when Germany tried to bestow it on the world just a few decades ago. How things change...

    I always thought Dutch looked more like German than it sounded. Dutch sounds like a throat ailment, German sounds like it knows when to control the guttural sounds.

    e.g.

    Did you know that 'schmettern' also means 'to dash/clash/batter'? Yet I think it can sound quite lovely when not used in an angry tone.
