While they may not be the friendliest or most polite nation on the planet, the French sure do have the ability to charm the socks of anyone... by merely opening their mouths. 

A recent poll by surveying 8 000 respondents around the world, revealed that the Gallic language is considered the sexiest in the world. 

However, not all everyone seems to agree! We asked our readers to tell us what they thought the sexiest languages and accents were and this is what they had to say (we suspect a lot of these were said with tongues firmly stuck in cheeks):

What do you think the sexiest language and/or accent is?

Robin Stobbs - #1 (language)- French; #2 (accent) Irish. For music these two come joint first with Hawai'ian a close second.

Igota Bigbala - nein! nein! nein! ze german accent ist ze most romantic in ze world!

Brad Chad Jensen - Hey, what about Zulu?

Kgotso Maxwell Maredi - Venda.

judy.meadows.31 - Spanish is sexy and expressive. I love it!

Vuyo Manisi - Rubbish, Afrikaans is the sexiest language

Phillip Letwala - I am not Venda but i consider it to be more sexiest if not romantic,period.
