Javascript (no idea whether this works or not :D )

const quoAndRem = (divd,div) => {
let rem = divd % div
let quo = (divd - rem)/div

return [quo,rem]
}

const formatter = (...vals) => {
  const output = vals.map((itm,indx) => {
    let unit
    switch (indx) {
      case 0:
        unit = "year"
        break;
      case 1:
        unit = "day"
        break;
      case 2:
        unit = "hour"
        break;
      case 3:
        unit = "minute"
        break;
      case 4:
        unit = "second"
        break;
    }

    if (indx !== 1) {
      unit += "s"
    }

    return [itm,unit]
  }).filter(itm => itm[0] !== 0).reduce((accm,curr,indx,arr) => {
    if (indx < arr.length - 2) {
      return `${accm}${curr[0]} ${curr[1]}, `
    } else if (indx === arr.length - 2) {
      return `${accm}${curr[0]} ${curr[1]} and `
    } else {
      return `${accm}${curr[0]} ${curr[1]}`
    }
  },"");

  return output
}

function readableTime(seconds) {
const yearInSecs = 365*24*60*60
const dayInSecs = 24*60*60
const hourInSecs = 60*60
const minInSecs = 60
const secInSecs = 1

let yearVal = quoAndRem(seconds, yearInSecs)
let dayVal = quoAndRem(yearVal[1], dayInSecs)
let hourVal = quoAndRem(dayVal[1], hourInSecs)
let minVal = quoAndRem(hourVal[1], minInSecs)
let secVal = quoAndRem(minVal[1], secInSecs)

output = formatter(yearVal[0],dayVal[0],hourVal[0],minVal[0],secVal[0])

return output
}

console.log(readableTime(60))

I may change the formatter function to be more elegant and less crappy using slice and arrays and idontknow.
