Good morning good afternoon and good evening. My name is Frederick cabanas and i’m the English teacher here at SAA. 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 Longueuil hordes of Genghis Khan pushed to Russia and pushed to 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. As the British Isles became very wealthy and successful and created a colonial empire. We have branches of Canadian English, American English, Australian English and being in Singapore we even have Singaporean English that was today’s short lesson on the history of English.
