Easiest language to learn for English Speakers?


Have to take several foreign language classes for degree. What's the easiest to learn, obviously most people just pick Spanish but that can't be the easiest

Dutch. Lots of common roots. You can read something in Dutch and practically figure out what it means a lot of the time.

Ive heard Dutch then Spanish in terms of easiness

German and Russian pretty much require you to live there to speak it fluently

Spanish, and since you live in TX seems like it would look great on resumes to speak Spanish.

For English speakers it is definitely Spanish.

Dutch and German are both in the same language family as English, but are very difficult to learn.

German most words in the English language are based on it. Once you get the verb conjugation down it isnt all that bad

Dutch seems to be the consensus as easiest but Spanish would likely be a lot more useful.

Excluding Esperanto, the answer is Spanish or Italian. If you are looking for something more exotic, the next most similar languages are probably dutch and Norwegian.

Just don't do Latin. I tried that when I was in college and almost dropped out over it ! Switched to French after and I was quite after.
