My natural idiom is the brazilian-portuguese, so, I don't know to say if the my idiom sounds romantic (like espanish and portuguese-portuguese) or not... What do you think?

As says a dictation in pt:
"Grama na mão dos outros é sempre mais verde do que na nossa."

I think French is the most romantic sounding, it's just soft sounding. Nothing to do with the French people. My mother was French and hated the French.

Oddly, in elementary school, they hired a teacher from Brazil to teach Spanish, needless to say, it was a shock, having had Mexican teachers previously, we were all left scratching our heads. It's not the same. She was teaching Portugese.

The worst language experience was in 10th grade, they didn't have a French language teacher, so assigned some woman that had no clue to teach. I dropped out after the second class when she didn't know how to pronounce the month of August, Août, she decided it was pronounced "out". I told her she was wrong, she disagreed. :eek: If a teacher doesn't know the subject, they should at least check.

I don't think french sounds romantic, for me, the most romanitcs are: 1st spanish, 2nd portuguese and 3rd italian. I don't think that enligsh sounds romantic too, but the english music are certainly the best, no doubt!

Lol, of course it all boils down to personal preference. French is usually considered the most romantic language though.

I'd have to say German is one of the harshest sounding languages.

There are three different ways to pronounce août that I commonly hear and "out" is one of them.

There is no correct pronunciation of the French language. However you might pronounce something, someone will tell you it's wrong.

I'm a Québecois and I've heard a-ou, ou and oute. I would say 'ou' is the most common pronunciation here. When you said 'out' I thought you meant 'oute', like in the examples you posted.

Ah, I was wondering how bad it was up in Canada, not as bad as I thought. We have people in the US with such bad slang that there are joke dictionaries like Texan to English. :tongue:

No, that woman was telling us it was pronounced *owt*, like in owl.

The video is rather amusing.

I suppose one's perception is affected by enunciation, or vocalization. Certainly, the German would sound different if it were spoken somewhat more softly, or perhaps by the same woman who speaks the French.

Technically Spanish is the most widely spoken Romance language with Portuguese second and French third :tongue2:

As a more serious answer IMO French (especially a French accent!) is the most romantic :!!)

I personally believe that there is really no such thing as a "romantic" language. Whether a language is romantic or not depends heavily on the specific speaker and the context in which is spoken.

As an aside, please note I mean "romantic" as being about love/romance. Of course, Portuguese, along with Spanish, French, Italian, etc., are Romance languages, i.e. languages evolved from Vulgar (i.e. vernacular) Latin.

Yes I got that. Hence why I included the emoticon to indicate my response was light hearted.

Portuguese doesn't sound romantic to me. There are 3 languages that sound romantic imo - Italian, Spanish and French.
