Yes and no.

Yes, the grammar would be correct and the spelling too.

No, the statement would not be true.

 

I'm messing with you, pulling your chain, rattling your cage.  Capital letters probably seem like a small thing, but not capitalizing certain words in English is as bad as saying in Portuguese "Amanha irei de caro a argentina."  Did you understand?  Did I communicate?  Sure.  Is what I wrote correct?  Of course not.  Capitalizing languages, I, countries, certain names, etc. are part of the English language.
