How many French, German and Spanish words do you know already?
It isn't very difficult to know what these French words mean.
table, chocolat, éléphant, giraffe.
These Spanish words are easy to understand, too.
animal, chocolate, doctor, invisible.
German nouns are always spelt with a capital letter, but these words should also be easy to work out.
Computer, Farm, Million, Radio.
Many of our words are similar to those in other European languages. This is partly because languages borrow words from each other, but also because many European languages are descended from the same language. French and Spanish are very closely related, and so are English and German.
