I'm not sure what "Ian" signifies in your question. Perhaps you intended to type "is"? If so, why do you think one language is "better" than another? What would that even mean? People who speak Ibo understand reality in the way their language permits; same for Tagalog, German, Amharic, Hindi, Urdu, Spanish, French, Dutch, Russian, Gaelic, Czech, Berber, Oromo, Yoruba, any language. Great literature exists in all these languages, and expressiveness is not the property of one set of phonemes any more than another.

There is no "best language". All languages are learned by natives speakers at about the same age and rate- the oral language that is. Reading takes varying amounts of time, depending on how closely the written letters correspond to the sounds. Chinese is clearly one of the most difficult to learn to read, since a reader has to learn thousands of characters to read even a simple text. Spanish and some other languages have a very close correspondence between letter and sound, so they are relatively easy to learn to read. English fall somewhere in the middle.
Some languages have lots of endings on verbs and other words to learn. English doesn't, but English is full of idioms, and it's hard to know how a word is pronounced from looking at it. The same ideas can be expressed in almost every language.

English. It's always been that way.
