like the point system 1.) English ~ 1000 points 2.) Mandarin ~ 105 points 3.) Spanish ~ 102 points 4.) Japanese ~ 23 points 5.) Russian ~ 17 points 6.) French ~ 11 points 7.) German ~ 6 points 8.) Portuguese ~ 3 points 9.) Hindi ~ 2 points 10.) Italian ~ 1 point I think thats fair

mandarin > englando. We will speak a mix of chinese and english (and 10% spanish, french and german combined) in the year 2243.

Nah, the arab kids in Europe are usually much more fluent in the local language than arabic. So maybe an influence. Either way I believe even Turkish is more likely.

You'll encounter English speakers in most countries, but the general level of English in non-western European/North American countries is still really bad. Even in your soon to be walled neighbour, Mexico, only the university educated mexicans speak it fluently.
2019-01-16 20:08
Great so what ur saying is a bunch of countries dont speak english perfectly, but they still speak it a little ill tell u right now, majority of countries dont speak chinese at all, maybe like 3 ppl took a class, thats it also english is still strong in many countries

Yeah, but the chinese people are slow as hell at learning English (and I've been to Shanghai and Beijing, where you except some people to speak it), so more and more countries emphasize Chinese in their education. Especially as Chinese investment is increasing in poorer parts of the world. Of course English is way more influential in 2019 and into the forseeable future, but just wait and see.. The chinos are coming :O
2019-01-16 20:13
Chinese people learn english way faster than english speakers learn chinese and i bet ur norgay ass dont know shit about china, i do trust me, im half chinese and my mother can speak perfect english, also ive been in china many times, almost all of their signs have some english, all my cousins can speak english too, so i have absolutely no idea what ur on about

Okok. Everybody probably pretended not to speak English then :)

lemme let u in on a little secret for 95% of asians if they see anybody white: they'll tell themselves in their own language "look at that outsider, he's so weird" then proceed to insult him when they see anyone black: they hold onto their kids and say "stay away from that black man, he could have a gun, he could have drugs, dont look at him, dont talk to him" this is true af btw, they rarely talk to outsiders
2019-01-17 14:58

Actually, the influence is even higher. «After the 1,875 most frequently used words out of the 250,000 words in distinct English vocabulary do French and Latin dominate the English language, achieving a share of 56% at the core vocabulary level, 5,000 words» Meaning, you could classify the English vocabulary as a Romance-Germanic hybrid. Even though it sounds a lot more germanic, and offiially is.

where is english used again? just name the first 100 countries, u can leave the rest off
2019-01-16 20:05
man everyone can speak english, it's not relevant if everyone can do it, thus lithuanian>english.
2019-01-16 20:06
im not ranking them based on how "good" u think they are im ranking them on importance
2019-01-16 20:07
all languages are important. /topic
2019-01-16 20:07
english is more important than any other language pls do ur best to try and deny that
2019-01-16 20:08
ancient languages are more important, because they gave us modern languages.
2019-01-16 20:10
well without modern languages, there would be no, modern languages wtf is ur logic modern > ancient english top 1 modern

You're talking about logic but you wrote something just before "well without modern languages, there would be no, modern languages" 2iq idea, modern languages wouldn't exist without ancient ones, that's all, still no debate, the most important language is the first one. I have just read your topic, just realized it's useless trying to explain this fact to you.
2019-01-17 15:22
modern languages wouldnt exist without modern languages whats so hard about that concept?? modern is more important than ancient, just like every new generation is more important than the previous one, it keeps the human race continuing

Ok man, you need to feel your language is the best language that ever existed on Earth, I'm not gonna try to explain anymore. But that sentence "well without modern languages, there would be no, modern languages" is still coming from a negative iq.
2019-01-17 15:26
when the fuck did i say ever existed also when the fuck did i say its my language 1.) i dont own a language 2.) english is my 2nd language also why is ur only insult low IQ I never ever said english was the most important language ever i said as of 1/17/19 at 9:27 A.M new york time, english is the most important language tell me right now u disagree and we're done here

Ranking languages by importance is already stupid. "well without modern languages, there would be no, modern languages" is even more stupid, I don't know how to explain it, you just need to read it to understand, normally. I disagree because languages are not rankable by importance, let's say there are 1 billion english speakers, that makes 6 billion people living without any english knowledge, so how can you rank it #1, it's impossible to rank any language. BTW: USA 2nd world power in 2020, 3rd in 2022, so english will lose its """importance"""
2019-01-17 15:34
if u think there are only 1 billion english speakers ur fucking retarded also i never said anything about 2022, why are u bringing that up, im talking about 2019

If you think english is important for 2 billion speakers ur fucking retarded, many english speakers don't even use it on a weekly basis, so how it makes english more important. If you consider kids who just learnt "Hello my name is Brian" as english speakers, I don't know what to say lmao Just trying to say languages are not rankable.
2019-01-17 15:43
exactly my point, it will become even more irrelevant as translation technology advances. it's actually impossible to rank languages as it depends where you are in the world. Say you want to start a business in Russia, then your English is pretty much useless there, but you can't argue with this guy, looking at his answers he is clearly someone not worth arguing with.

+1 Well at least I tried. I'm still laughing at this sentence: "There would be ne modern languages without modern languages", it could be a strong bait, but it's just the most american explanation you'll find on hltv. PS: Even if I hate Espiranto, I hope Valiance will gain that main qualifier spot
2019-01-17 16:56
espiranto is kind of a cunt, I agree, but he's still young and can change, look at s1mple. in the end I just cheer for my countrymen. there would be no x without x means nothing lol, it's just a statement, not an argument, don't know what he was trying to say, if anything at all. Might be a troll, but by the looks of it he's putting in way too much effort into this for it to be a troll, you know?

2019-01-17 17:09
i don't even understand what you're saying? without modern languages we would just be using ancient ones.

reported for false reporting english top 1 importance stay mad
2019-01-16 20:06
I'd rather rate them by quality
2019-01-16 20:06
then make a list for me right here, im interested in what u think, mine isnt in quality, its in importance, as quality lists are extremely biased
2019-01-16 20:07
I don't know enough about languages to rate them all by quality, but a language without consistent reading pronunciation rules isn't top 1 for sure
2019-01-16 20:09

2019-01-17 15:18
current importance i cant believe i have to mention current cuz some ancientfags are saying latin and shit
2019-01-17 15:19
You have to mention it because your ranking is shit Why is Japanese so high? You are not going by most spoken language in the world, you are not going by language spoken in most countries, what's the criteria? How do you value importance? By how many anime you like?
2019-01-17 15:21
1.) anime trash but there's a lot of business and shit in japan 2.) tbh no language besides english is important
2019-01-17 15:22
1) Japanese economy is slowing down 2) if you are going by business opportunities you should have included arabic

English is easier to read,write,learn so there's no doubt it will be the language to communicate in official workplaces. Ranking any language like you are would be an insult to it so you shouldn't do that...each and every language is gr8 in its own right. As Far as overall speaker numbers are concerned...mandarin is the most spoken,2nd is spanish / hindi(most of the stats you'll find on internet about no. of people speaking hindi are not correct at all, the no. is certainly in between 0.8-1 billion)
