The English... that I love


Explanation:
this is not Spanish, but French - maybe you should re-ask your question with the French translators? My little knowledge tells me it's that language. Good luck to you...

the English . . . that I love


Explanation:
Yes, this is indeed French, but it is not a complete sentence. Depending on the context, it could mean "the English . . . that I love", "English . . . that I love", or "the English (person) . . . that I love."

Sorry, I got in a hurry. The last option should have read \"the Englishman whom I love.\" Again, we would need more context to know for sure; but as a perennial romantic, I think the last one makes the most sense.
