    #61 I was one of the ... let´s call them optimistic people ... who started learning it. Problem was: Nobody else did. Then the teacher came with a book full of names and told us that Esperanto people visit each other worldwide. That was that... I don´t think it´s much easier to learn than Spanish. Maybe the grammar.

    #57 @Don Graham the last attempt to do so resulted in Esperanto (probably a few years before your time).

    English is definitely a messed up language, but one credit I give it is we don't apply he and she to inanimate objects. The word "the" is neutral. Regardless. I could go on, but I'm getting off topic.

    If I could, I'd learn all languages. Take the best of them all and make a perfect one! But that'll never happen.

    Yiddish is a kind of dead language now. But there are people trying to preserve it. In Israel in particular. The grandmothers, my grandmothers, spoke Yiddish, a very expressive language. It​ could be compared to Spanglish since it is an amalgam of Russian and Hebrew and German and Hebrew. Hebrew as a language was resurrected from the dead.

    That is correct. I was living in Korea Town, LA but it was a Hispanic neighborhood. I'm walking by a driveway (I always had search for parking) and these children were playing and one of them says, Perro. Dog. It illuminated me because I was trying to learn Spanish. The word just floated on the air and registered in my brain. That was the only word I caught.I can learn it if I want to but it will take me a while to understand it at speed. I told the lady, Norma, I told her "Any problems you come to me." Because I didn't want the big kid acting as a power broker. This was at the bakery. She would come and talk fast but somehow I managed to understand her because it was in context. Just like you can read a Spanish language​ newspaper and piece it together.

    #37 This is because Spanish is a latin language, like french, and there are a lot of english words that come from old french.

    #51 Dear @Javier beBee The reality of the United States is that nothing in its development actually made logical sense and there are plenty of more unpredictable shifts and changes to come, if the past is any predictor of the future. Whether it is the war for independence that need the French court to save it, the Louisiana purchase from Napoleon who needed money to fight the British, the British ransacking Washington DC in the War of 1812 after the US had failed in its invasion of Canada, or the mad costly division which was the American Civil War.

    Just one look at the linguistic map of South Western Europe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Linguistic_map_Southwestern_Europe.gif tells us that one cannot predict the future. When you consider that when France, England and Spain were the three major powers, how America had the moxy to become America just underlines the absurdity of historical perspective. Language and nationhood is an evolutionary soup and this is exemplified by the extinction of languages and the changing shape of borders. http://www.linguisticsociety.org/content/what-endangered-language and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iha3OS8ShYs

    We either understand this or we do not need to - for we do not make these geopolitical shifts, evolution does and whoever is in the right place at the right time gets the bragging rights. What does it mean for beBee? Evolution my friend and only evolution - and if you or I have been granted the right place at the right time, our duty of care is simply not to lose this gift from evolution, or as Napoleon's brother said to Napoleon "Don't sell Louisiana to anyone my brother" - but Napoleon only pushed him into a bath tub of water. Evolution meant Napoleon squandered his gift, but Thomas Jefferson did not.

    Nevada, Colorado, Los Angeles, Florida, Montana, San Antonio, California and Sacramento are all Spanish words or names. The list goes on and on.

    #15 Creating a universal language had been an impossible task in the history of the human race. Different tribes populated areas in so many parts of Earth separated with thousands of miles from one another. With the limited resources for transportation they had it'd been very hard to communicate, a necessary condition for speaking a common language.

    In my travels I found many Latinos who were purposely not bringing their children up in a Spanish speaking household. What a shame, not to have a second language taught to you from the get go. With that kind of approach this will never happen by 2050. Those from other than English families are also doing the same thing. What percent of grandchildren speak their grandparents native language: Italian, Gaelic, German, French, Inuktitut, Hebrew, Russian, Spanish...?

    Nowadays, English is very important. All important companies use it as imposed language. On the other hand is important the exposed future perspective. Chinese language could be the most spoken language but Spanish is easier to be learnt than the asiatic idiom.
    La población impone sus idiomas en los países. Conocer inglés y español es la mejor manera de enfocar el futuro. Si además se es chino y se domina el mandarín, sin necesidad de aprenderlo, el mundo laboral ofrecerá buenos puestos de trabajo. No a la imposición de lenguajes y sí al desarrollo de estos.
    Buen artículo. Good job.

    Cuando fuí a Miami de vacaciones la primera vez pensé que todo el mundo hablaba ingles , y me sorprendí de la cantidad de gente que habla español allá.

    I’ve just realised that I am now surrounded by native Spanish speakers and can ask a question that has been plaguing me for a good long while now. How does one pronounce the name of Spanish ceramicists Lladró?

    I have been saying Ya-DRŌ for years, but to my surprise, on a visit to New York, a good friend corrected me and said, JA-drō.

    Now, he’s from Puerto Rico, and I didn’t know if he was speaking standard Spanish or a dialect we fondly call ‘New Yorican’.
