The Top Ten

1 English

English is not easy at all. It has so many stupid rules. This is coming from a fluent English speaker that has seen people with English as their second language struggle badly, while I easily zoomed through an ACTUALLY easy language, French. A lot of people think it's easy solely because it is their first language.

Most developed and developing countries teach English as a second language. Fast becoming the universal language of the world.

English, the language easy to learn, read, write, and speak

Everybody know the English is the most speaking language! - Squadela
