Ukrainian language "the third most beautiful language in the world" -1934 Paris

Ukrainian is coming out soon so I did a bit of research and I found this nice little fact.


Do you know which language takes the second place in the world on melodic criteria? (http://bestofukraine.com/culture/interesting-facts.html)

Ukrainian language took the second place on melodic criteria after Italian and it was ranked as the third most beautiful language in the world on such criteria as phonetics, vocabulary, phraseology and sentence structure after French and Persian at a linguistic contest held in Paris in 1934.

Directly I went on youtube to hear some interviews, songs and general videos in Ukrainian. It sounds very melodical for a slavic language. I can't wait for it to come out.

Here's two examples: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbkggjY0kP4)

** I love this song. ( even if I have no idea what's being said. ) :-) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pV3wRM3hJiM)

You will be surprised.

Enjoy

I have to say, I disagree... at least partly because I personally don't find French or Italian all that beautiful grins, ducks the rotten tomatoes and runs away sorrreeeeee....

Wow! Nice song! I had a lot of Шаленію this week so this is a nice end to it, haha. I want to learn Russian but I like other Slavic languages too. Now I really want to try Ukrainian! This might sound weird but to me the woman sounds a bit like she is speaking Portuguese (not really but you get what I mean!) Love it! :D

Sometimes for me it sounds like some fable from my childhood. It's strange. I have never been in Ukraine.

Ukrainian really just sounds the same as most other Slavic languages, to be honest.
