Indeed, Spanish is the easier language in the world... I am a Spanish speaker myself and I feel insulted by the claim on complexity. I decided to eliminate myself such statement. The Spanish grammar is by far more complex than the English one. The "lefty" wiki version: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_language seem to longer and more complete.--Hedleypanama 08:18, 26 August 2011 (EDT)
This article could use some work... What all should an article on a language include? Grammar structure? Past, present, future tenses? Pronouns? I'll start working on this tomorrow, if I get a chance. GodlessLiberal 16:12, 15 April 2007 (EDT)
- Yes, English does not appear to be your native language. I suggest, before you work on the article, you increase your ability to converse in English first, so that less fixes will be necessary. If this is an isolated case, I apologize. Oh and... don't you think you'd be biased in the state of your language? A lot of people say English is a hard language to learn, but it doesn't seem that way to me. --SeanS 09:23, 26 August 2011 (EDT)

Claims about "complexity"
"It is more difficult for native Spanish speakers to learn English than it is for native English speakers to learn Spanish, due to the complexity and inconsistency of English grammar compared to Spanish grammar."
