I would say Spanish because compared to other languages it is most similar to English and it would be most useful to you considering its the 2nd language next to English.
If you are native English speaker, then it would be Spanish.
Spanish pronunciation is fairly easy for English speakers, with only ten vowel/dipthong sounds (English has 20), and the easy-to-master letter ñ. Like Italian, the orthography is clear and simple; words are written as they’re pronounced, which makes reading easier. Grammatically, Spanish has fewer irregularities than other romance languages too.
Interesting question and I would say that the easiest second language for anyone to learn is the universal language of Esperanto, which is a constructed language devised by a Polish doctor LL Zamenhof in the 1870s/1880s. It has just 16 easy grammatical rules and very regular patterns so there's no irregular verbs to learn. It is estimated that around 10,000,000 have studied it to some extent at some time.
Spanish is a good suggestion, but I would recommend German. Many of our words have a germanic origin. It is a very technical language which follows fairly strict grammatical rules unlike english and spanish both of which are rife with exceptions to the rule. Just my opinion after trying french, arabic and spanish.
umm try to learn Filipino language, but i self-studied Korean the problem is , its hard to put the words to form a sentence, there are a lot of similar words.
Its Spanish because i learnt it and its very much similar to English and you will learn it in short of time as well.
it"s a world language .easyly to speak.but tamil language is wonderful language world old language also. mother language is best one of world .our mother language simple to our country
It all depends on your age. Your brain is capable of not only learning new into, but physically change to accommodate it. However the older you get the harder it is to learn and process info unconsciously. When your a baby, your mind is like wet clay. It picks up new info all the time, and the brain shapes into what it needs to do that's why you can have actual conversations when your 4 and your native language better and more fluently then foreigners who learned it at say 16. You learn the language and then it becomes second nature, you don't have to think what each sound of a word means, unconscious recognition, but when you learn a language when your older say 16 your already hard wired for your native language, and it becomes harder to learn a new language, it like taking an old computer from the 90's and trying to down load window 7 on it, it may work a little but it won't know what it is and move slower or not process the info, so in conclusion there is no such thing as an easy language to learn. Language is the most complicated thing for your brain and and does not allow a lot of space to change once a language is fully learned. It doesn't mean you cant learn a new language, you will just have an accent and will have to ask fluent speakers to repeat a lot of what they say.
For me, Spanish is the easiest foreign language to master. Our dialects in the Philippines, are mixed with some Spanish language. We could sing few Spanish songs, regardless of mispronunciation of some words. If we can, why can't you.
One you can easily practice - i.e. with someone who you see regularly who speaks that language fluently.
Language is a living thing and the best place to learn it is within a community of speakers.
It depends the contry which your family live in. Surely,baby-talk must be the first language that people want to talk.
I would agree that esperanto is probably one of the easiest languages to master because of it's logical and regular structure. Words are encoded so you know their part of speech simply by the ending; however, this can lead to problems when trying to learn other "natural" languages as they do not have some of these features.
I found it rather difficult to make progress learning Swedish after two years of learning and using esperanto regularly. I kept wishing that Swedish had grammar encoded endings and other things that could be viewed as a crutch in esperanto.
Definitely SPANISH! Before, I was eager to learn French, but it just got my tongue tied! I could hardly pronounce the word specially with "r".. It is so difficult! But, when i diverted to Spanish, it is somewhat different. Maybe because Filipino language has similarity with Spanish words. Within a month or so of learning, I can speak a little with it and even understand some of the basic words. It's way too far with the French. But, still I love both the languages and I want to learn even more.
based on my experience it would be Korean and I don't know why, I guess it's about interest and the reason why you want to learn the language.
Since I was young my grandpa start to teach me Spanish I use it for a while, I was quite good actually but when he died and I don't have anyone to converse with using the language I kindah forgot, of course I still know the basics but not as good as I once once.
I learn french too (my foreign language subject) but for one year all I know is the words of introduction we were forced to memorize.
I learn Korean for six months (speaking only) and after six month I am quite good and until now I can still converse, of course I have the accent but I am understood.
I would say it's Spanish too. I think it's easier for me because I also speak Japanese and the pronunciation is closer to that language than in English. Grammatically, the verb conjugations and things like that have a certain predictable pattern that it's not too difficult to memorize. (compared to like, German!
I like dabbling in foreign languages and, as a native English speaker, having tried Spanish, German, French and a little Chinese. German was by far the easiest. As Triimarc meantioned many of our words are Germanic, there aren't any weird pronunciations, and the words actually follow the rules - unlike English. On a side note I've heard that English is the worst language to learn as a second language.
Definitely German. Many of their words are either pronounced exactly the same as in English (only a little harsher and more Germanic), or a very similar to English words. Of course there are different rules and words like in any other language, but as a beginning language it is very easy.
I think it depends in your native language...
I'm Mexican, so Spanish first, English as second language, basic Japanese as 3rd for now, I would like to take on another 3+ languages but I would really like to know what are the best options...

I teach Spanish, and if English is your native language, I think Spanish is not too difficult to learn. Of course, I could be biased.

If you were able to learn a foreign language without any effort, which language would you choose to speak and why?

Do you speak another language? Is there one that you want to learn in the future?I'm a native English speaker, but I speak Portuguese rather fluently, since I've spent the past year and a half in Brazil. I used to study French and Spanish in high school, but I've forgotten quite a lot. If possible,...

Which foreign languages do you know and how did you come to learn them?As a frame of reference, it would also be interesting to know what your native language is. I also think the difference between learning as a child and learning as an adult is very interesting.

Should a foreign language be taught earlier than middle school in US public schools?
