English #1? I must dissent. But I am willing to be convinced if you quote a reliable source.

English #2, Mandarin #1 by a fairly narrow margin on total number of speakers; English falls to #3 behind Spanish if you look only at native speakers, with Mandarin extending its lead by a wide margin.

I would have to look it up. Paiktiss's figures are for native speakers but if you include numbers for people who learn a foreign language then the rankings shift.

As I said, you are wrong. You are only counting native speakers. Total speakers for English is 1.5 billion. I posted t2ge link.

So if tge question is what is the most spoken language in the world then the anwser is English.

Ok, I made a mistake. "One of the half billion" not "one and a half billion".

Sue me.

Still more than Spanish.

Are you saying black people don't speak correctly?

I think this one makes your point better.

I don't hate Arabs though I do find Islam extremely objectionable. Hispanics are fine though I want immigrants to be legal. :shrug:
