English is a West Germanic language related to Dutch, Frisian and German with a significant amount of vocabulary from French, Latin, Greek and many other languages. It originated in Anglo-Saxon England and has lingua franca [any language that is widely used as a means of communication among speakers of different languages] status in many parts of the world. It is used extensively as a second language and as an official language in Commonwealth countries and is the preferred language of many international organizations.
Historically, English originated from several dialects (now called Old English) which were brought to Britain by Anglo-Saxon settlers beginning in the 5th century. The language was heavily influenced by the Old Norse language of Viking invaders. Following the Norman conquest, Old English developed into Middle English, borrowing heavily from the Norman vocabulary and spelling conventions. Modern English developed from there and still continues to adopt foreign words, especially from Latin and Greek.
Almost hundreds of millions of people speak English as a native language and a significant number of millions speak it as a second language in over 105 countries including the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, American Samoa, Andorra, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, Botswana, British Indian Ocean Territory, British Virgin Islands, Brunei, Cameroon, Canada, Cayman Islands, Cook Islands and Denmark.
