At this moment:

Portuguese - my soft and sweet native language;

English and Spanish - too many reasons to list;

Italian - the best sounding language ever, imo. It is just too beautiful to my ears;

Czech - My first and favourite Slavic language and the language that totally changed my life;

Persian (Farsi) - I'm obsessed with Iranian songs right now. I can't stop listening to them;

Japanese - Everything! The country, the culture and the entertainment industry;

Tagalog (Filipino) - My new found linguistic hobby.

Sanskrit is a very old Language once spoken in India, and it's still spoken there. The most famous linguist of India, Panini, wrote the most important thing of Sanskrit, and it's the oldest language of the Indo-Arian Family, you can see more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanskrit

Well, true. Not totally dead... in the same way Latin is not totally dead, too, and some people still speak it. Panini is probably the first grammarian in human history whose work managed to reach modern times. If he is not, he at least is clearly the most prominent.

Irish, Portuguese and French are my top. I am most fluent in French but I love the sound of Portuguese and it seems to come more natural for me as well, I have deep roots in Ireland I find the Irish language very interesting , beautifully sound and the structure of the language once you get it down is different but is closer to the way the thought process works at least for me it is.

English - Something about a Germanic language with a Romance vocabulary is just so smooth and sensible. German often feels like a math problem there are so many rules and the French language feels like it is showing off there are so many aspects seemingly designed to make things sound prettier. English is a very nice in between.

French - That beauty I just complained about is also, of course, beautiful! The language just draws a person in.

Farsi - It is linear, it follows its own rules nicely, it is easy to figure out what verbs mean if you build up your nouns, it is profitable in a lot of ways, and it is a great showing off language here in America since so few people speak it here.

Russian - The vocabulary just makes sense! I am not fond of the alphabet, but it is not hard to figure out.

Polish - Apart from using our alphabet it is like Russian on hard mode!

Vietnamese - The compartmentalization of words makes words so easy to memorize!

Edit: Actually I believe Portuguese is more beautiful than Spanish but for several reasons I got passionate about Spanish first and that's why Portuguese looks a bit odd to me now. I also like German in a very different way that I can't describe.
