Urrrghhh... This is one of the tougher ones you have put out there! I'll go with Macedonian for this one though. Gotta love those palatal consonants.


If I would be honest, I like Macedonian more because of its sweet sound! I'm learning this beautiful language to understand it better and the people who speak it. The music is another reason that I'm learning it (I mostly listen to songs from Тоше Проески <3). Многу сакам македонски. :)


Great comparison, Macedonian! The language seems to flow a lot better. Really hope there will be a course in the incubator soon.


Uhm, difficult choice... bulgarian! :)
