Great explanation Vicente!
That's a new one for me as well amayo!
It can sound weird, but we really can tell that spanish is a more perfect language than english.
When you say more perfect language, what do you mean exactly salvadorm?
in spanish you pronounce as write, spanish has many fewer exceptions, different pronouns and verb conjugations are easier to differentiate, causing fewer ambiguities, etc.
I donīt think that things that are easier to understand or to learn are closer to perfection, but I will respect your opinion either way.
I don't know about "perfection" but to me Spanish is a much easier language to learn. I truly admire non-native speakers who master English. It is difficult and complicated and, to me, British English is even worse than American English, in that they just seem to throw in superfluous letters...like in honour instead of honor, or programme instead of program, center as centre. I'm certainly glad I was raised with English because I doubt I could ever learn it otherwise.
However, in defense of my native tongue I will say that English has a word for EVERYTHING and often several words for the same thing. Spanish, to a non-native, seems to have less range.
I love both languages

Maybe I don't use the correct words, "easier language to learn", just like Vicente says, is more accurate.
You are totally right Vicente, English has a word for Everything, so in other languages, like spanish, we take words from english for concepts that we don't know to explain with a word, versatil (versatile), control (control), líder (leader), etc. and much more about sports and technical terms.
