Good morning, good afternoon and good evening. This is Fredrick Cabanes the Head English Teacher here at SAA Global Malvern House in Singapore. I want to give you a short history lesson of English.
English has a long history that can be traced back to Greece, specifically the Greeks. They had a long civilization and at a small fishing village in Italy called Rome. When the Greek Empire collapsed the Romans developed their own empire that covered France, Spain the whole Mediterranean and half of the British Isles, their language was Latin but Mongal hordes of Genghis Khan pushed into Russia and pushed into Germany pushing the German tribes to the sea and causing the Roman Empire to fall. So actually, British English has its roots in Germanic language, Latin, and Greek.
When the nobles of the UK became very wealthy, they took on the food and fashion of France, the food and fashion of Italy; so many of our English words that are related to fashion and food are actually Italian or French words.
