Interesting Facts About English & Spanish...
English is the language of technology and the repository of instant words as they are born. In part because English welcomes additions. It also has more words than any other language. Some 995,000 by one count. For example, English has nine words just for 'door'. Probably because motivational speakers are always opening new doors for people!
Spanish has one-fourth as many words as English. But it's a Romance language, and when you're in love you don't need to say much. And Latin music has a rhythm like no other. But for any immigrant, English is not an easy language to learn. Imagine trying to grasp, 'two, too and to'. Different words with the same pronunciation but different meanings.
Overall, learning a foreign language is much harder as an adult, if only because the mind picks up languages easier when a person is young. And English creates a constant explosion of new words that come from technology to pop culture. From Blog to Twitter. While English may be one of the international languages of business...any language isn't easy when it's not your native tongue.
