Accent? Tongue twist? Shape of mouth?

Haha, by shape of mouth you mean how speaking it shapes my mouth or? :)) Interesting :) 


Definitely accent and the collective tone, sometimes the unknown itself attracts me, so I could like and embark on learning whatever language. Just the fact it sounds totally foreign is intriguing to me. 

Otherwise, I'm an actress at heart so what I perceive is accompanied body language and the sound/collective tone, I feel new words stimulate my brain and create new neural pathways, and what attracts me is what it does to my brain :)) 

In addition, and easy grammar and a lovely country that I would visit and have a use of knowing the language, is what would make me learn and enjoy it

For me, that would be accent and the thrill of hearing a native speak and knowing exactly what they're saying.
