in spanish we can identify the gender of something with just one word

Easily determined in Russian as well. You need one word, or two if you're not so sure.

Masculine - On, Moy
Feminine - Ona, Moya
Middle gender (that's what we call it ;D) - Ono, Moyo

Swedish: The chair is common! "Stolen!"

You know, common gender, as opposed to neuter.
Beat that, era rövhattar.

So swedish has 4 genders?

No, just common and neuter, but common used to be masuline/feminine, like in German.
It provides maximal confusion beause there is absolutely no actual quality something can have to determine which one it should have.
It's also worth noting that the other Norse languages have lots of nouns that are identical, except they have different gender, so that's fun.

Russian also lacks the gender classification of chairs.

yes, but it also has 33 letters. That's an extra 7 letter to learn to pronounce and use, plus some of the characters are rather odd and some are formed differently when written than when typed.

Well, those extra letters are mostly just combinations of letters you use in English. If anything, I'd say it's more efficient. Also, everything is pronounced the same way always, unless you have either "b" or "d" following it to change the pronunciation of a consonant (or rather, how much emphasis you put on it).

Most slavic languages do have gender classifications, but we mostly don't have articles. We only have them when reffering to a very specific object example: ova stolica - this (feminine) chair

But you're right. Hochdeutsch is pretty rare in germany. Wherever you go people have a specific accent.

but "that well" would be "ta studnia". "to" is a masculine "that" , thus implying that the chair is masculine

Romans spoke latin, and had it as the default language for Catholicism, so when they took over Britain and brought catholicism, people would have learned latin.

The romans spoke latin. But they never attempted to 'merge' with the Britons, but rather invade. SO the common man on England wasnt influenced by latin because they were never taught it (unless they were monks, but they often kept themselves away writing the bible) etc. Then the Romans left and no latin was put into the public language.
