Lol do your homework and please READ before refuting. The guy said spanish was ONE of the most broadly used languages on earth. He did not say THE ONE, but ONE OF THE. Also English followed by chinese by a landslide, you kiddin me? its more like Chinese followed by spanish, followed by english, if we are to talk about native numbers.
Most info sources Ive checked place spanish ON TOP of english ranking wise (as in, being at a lower position, hence having more natives), and not only that, they say Castilian has more natives than english, and there are pretty much two main spanish, the one we speak in South America and Castilla (Castilian) and the spanish they speak all over Spain (except Castilla, DUH)
P.S. Over 5% of the world do speak spanish, so everything you said was a bunch of blabbery with no truth to it. And btw Chinese has WAY more speakers than English, Im amazed at how ignorant people (you, and Im sure you aint alone bud) can get to even think English could POSSIBLY have more speakers.
