February is of course, the month of romance! Millions of people around the world treat their special ones with love and affection on Valentine’s day and so we’ve decided to try and find some of the most beautiful and romantic languages in the world! We teamed up with language translation company Morningside Translations to discover more. After travelling the world for the last 10+ years we’re happy to present what we believe are five of the most beautiful languages in the world.
SPANISH – Te quiero
The Spanish are well known for their passion for life, for music, for food, for partying and for romance. Any association with Spain conjures up images of dinners for two on a sun-kissed balcony with a deep bottle of red and the beautiful sound of the flamenco guitar. This romantic imagery isn’t far from the truth in a country steeped in passion and culture. It’s no wonder the Spanish language has a sensual reputation.
IRISH – Táim i ngrá leat
Irish is a language (and an accent) which can send women crazy with passion and can reduce men to their knees! Any woman in the world who has seen P.S I Love you will have fallen in love with both the Irish accent as well as Gerard Butler! With its ancient origins, the Irish language symbolises a wholesome, traditional almost wild imagery from the Emerald Isle. The language is perhaps best showcased and epitomised in the many traditional Irish folk songs about love, loneliness and the beauty of Ireland. The English-speaking Irish in the North and South of the country are also famed for their purring Gaelic accents which express romance in a beautiful manner.
FRENCH – Tu es l’amour de ma vie.
The French way of life captures the romance of this beautiful language which is encompassed by its romantic capital, Paris. An evening stroll down one of the cobbled, windy streets of Montmartre should fill your heart with as much love and romance as possible in this wonderful city. The French are a hedonistic bunch in their love of food and life which can be heard through the euphoric tones of the French language. Ooh la la! We visited beautiful Paris for our first anniversary a few years ago and it truly was one of the most romantic getaways we’ve ever had!
JAPANESE – 永遠に愛しています。
The most beautiful languages in the world do not exclusively originate from the typical romantic European languages. We see this as we look further east to what is considered to be one of the most exotic languages of the world; Japanese. The Japanese language is as impressive as it is beautiful with a full range of expressions and complex levels of communicative abilities all adding to the allure of Japan and the Japanese language.
ITALIAN – Ti amo
Last but certainly not least is without doubt the language which I think is the most beautiful in the world! One of the world’s most romantic languages comes from the heart of culture, passion, food and civilisation; Italy. Thanks to the Roman conquest of Europe, Latin was successfully spread across the lands giving us the basic of all the romantic languages you hear today; French, Italian and Spanish to name a few. Italy was central to this distribution of romantic languages and it is, therefore, no surprise that its own language blossomed into a beauty. Intertwined in poetry and opera’s it is the rhythmic buoyancy of Italian which satisfies our ears the most.
