10 awesome and beautiful foreign words that can't be translated to English

Surely, these wonderful words describe phenomena and feelings you have seen and experienced, you just didn't have the right word to describe them. QuizzClub team believes we should steal these 10 outstanding units of speech to our language!


I thought some of my feelings I couldn't describe were strange and even... abnormal. Now I see that I'm not alone in that, and people from other cultures have even invented precise words to describe these concepts.


Were any of these words familiar to you? Which of the feelings or phenomena from the list have you experienced in your life? Which word did you like most of all?


We are waiting for your comments!

Shlimazl is a word we always used even though no one in our family is Jewish. I do not know why we knew it. My grandparents all came from Germany in the 1800's, and died here before I was born except Dad's father, who died when I was young. My Mother said her grandma had some Jewish friends in Germany.
