How beautiful German sounds compared to other languages

German is said to be harsh and ugly. Is that so? Check this video out: https://youtu.be/zLvL7a8Y0pI

Oh no, German is not harsh and ugly, on the contrary, it's very beautiful! I love German. Although, in that video other people are being harsh on purpose, so it doesn't show the real softness of the other languages.

I love German pronunciation, too! But this video is a parody of another parody, see here: https://youtu.be/wBIMvXpw0t0

It's 'Krankenwagen'.

A 'krakenwagen' would be a car for sea monsters. :)

Theres a word in portuguese that the origin relies on the german sailors. On the 19th century there was some brodels on the harbor region and for the new german sailors who arrived the old ones warned them about the girls with diseases saying that they were "mit ein kranken". The brazilian people heared this a lot and forged a word that means trouble and this word is encrenca thats is the nearest sound they could remember for ein kranken!
