I got into a conversation with friends today about languages and we couldn't agree on which one was best, so it got me wondering what people in general's favourite was.

Personally, my favourite language is Japanese. I love the way it flows and to my ears it sounds so melodic and elegant. I like the writing systems too, I've only been learning Japanese for 2 1/2 years now (and in that time have done a month-long exchange there) and I can read all the kana and a decent amount of Kanji, so easiness of learning has made me love it too.
