French Words in English

Did you know that 1 out of 3 words in English come from French? That’s right!

It stems from Guillaume le Conquérant’s reign in England and the Norman french he brought with him, from the French’s love of food, and many other points in time of travel and trade.

Here is a really neat little video on how we can also find entire French phrases in some common English words.

Language is fun! Enjoy 🙂

Thanks for the share Mr. Simon
