    • 100% Definitely Spanish. Unless you count Scots and Frisian, but there aren't enough resources to learn them efficiently.

    • Esperanto is WAAAY easier to learn than any other language.

      Go to esperanto-usa.org for info.

      Several millions of people in over 120 countries speak it.

    •                    What is Esperanto?
        Esperanto, The International Language, is a language developed
      

      to make it easier for people of different cultures to communicate. Its author, Dr L L Zamenhof (1859-1917), published his "Lingvo Internacia" in 1887 under the pseudonym "Dr. Esperanto". It is now spoken by at least two million people, in over 120 countries. There are thousands of books and over 100 periodicals published currently. But what makes it any more international than Spanish, French, English or Russian?

        Incorrectly termed 'artificial' (the right word is 'planned'),
      

      Esperanto is specifically intended for international/intercultural use, so those who use it meet each other on an equal footing, since neither is using his or her native language. With national languages, the average person isn't able to express himself as well as a native speaker or the gifted linguist. Thanks to its simple, logical, regular design, anyone can learn Esperanto fairly rapidly.

    • The Uto-Aztec, a language speaked by the Aztecs, Part of Yucatan and the North of Mexico. Now is a rare language (no much) but only is speaked by USA, Mexico and the North of C. America.

    • Depends. Just do immersion education, it's easy that way, and you pick up accents easier.

      Chinese is pretty easy, if you ignore the complex spelling system (which is still complicated after the simplification), three varieties of keyboards, the extraordinary amount of characters that sound the same and individual characters with multiple pronunciations, the obsession with ancient poems (古诗), which you have to know at least five or something to be "educated", and the anecdote-esque idiom-esque 成语, which I'm not even gonna talk about. And that doesn't include dialects.

    • German spelling is too long.

    • You just ram words together. It's like in English if we hyphened words together.

    • I think German or Indonesian

    • I agree with LMB. German is pretty easy. Some German words are a lot like English, but we don't run our words together.

    • Spanish is definitely easiest for me.
