For me it is definitely Italian though I have a soft spot for Slavic languages such as Czech, Polish, Croatian and Russian.

Everyone's opinion might be different than other's since people have their own tastes in the way languages sound. For me, Swedish is such a beautiful sounding languages; the way the words are pronounced feels great in my mouth, and the accent is simply amazing!

I really like the sound of Hungarian. It's also fun to pronounce to me.

I think it's something different for everyone, but to me Mandarin Chinese (I love the tones!), American Sign Language (it doesn't have a sound but it looks beautiful), and Ukrainian (it kind of sounds like Russian and Italian mixed!) are some beautiful sounding languages.

I've heard when people speak Portuguese, it sounds like they're singing.

I'd like to mention Cantonese. It has 9 tones while Mandarin only has 4. For Mandarin speakers, Cantonese is sounded like singing a beautiful song for its varieties tones. Cantonese_tones

I like any language from a Nordic Country ( Norwegian and Faroese in particular ). Intonation and phonology from these languages are very pleasing to listen to in my opinion.

Portuguese, Swedish, or French are probably the prettiest languages!

À mon avis c'est le français...I think Parisian French sounds the most beautiful...but then again most languages sound intriguing as you begin to study them and become more aware the subtleties of pronunciation.

Hmm, in my opinion Swedish and Turkish sounds the most comfortable to the ear. I also like the sounds of Finnish, although it isn't on duo (yet).
