Writer's Block: It Sounds Better When You Say It

No matter what language you speak, you've probably come across words or phrases in another language that sound better than their equivalents in your native tongue. What's your favorite word or phrase in a foreign language?

Pretty much everything sounds better in French.

une pamplemousse = grapefruit

Pourquoi pas? = Why not?

un sac a dos = backpack

Je t'aime = I love you

 

Better in French.
