What is English Language?

Good question.

English is actually an Anglo-Saxon language. Words in the English language are mostly borrowed from Latin, Greek and if you've noticed, some Malay words are now adopted in the Oxford Dictionary.

Recently, I acquired the book Making Sense  by David Crystal. It described the English Language in story-like passages that won't leave you bored. The author also describes how children develop their language and also how children acquire languages. Turns out: it's from infancy stage!

  1. Official government documents for visas, taxes & healthcare are generally in Norwegian although with an influx or immigrants and expatriates, it's not hard to find an English version. It's pretty common to hear Norwegians move between English and Norsk seamlessly even within one conversation amongst themselves. It really is quite impressive. philippines esl schools
