Foreign Languages are Like English in Many Ways
The comedian Steve Martin in joking about his first visit to Paris once said: "The French are amazing — they have a different word for everything." But he was mistaken, as you will see. Many words in foreign languages look like English words.
Foreign Words And English Words Are Related
Are you aware that you already know many foreign words? In fact, you may not realize that you've been reading and speaking some foreign languages for years. In English many obviously foreign words and expressions are in common use. Also, foreign languages and English have thousands of other shared words which, in their written form at least, are strikingly similar or even identical.
Thousands of words in English and foreign languages look alike. Many are identical, and others have only minor changes in spelling, and are easy to recognize. In many cases, the only difference is the pronunciation.
It makes sense to begin by putting some of the already-learned skills of your first language English to good use in helping you learn a second language.
OVERVIEW OF EASY FOREIGN LANGUAGES LESSONS
Easy Foreign Language Lesson One begins by explaining how Easiest Foreign Languages are easiest because so many foreign words are similar to English words.
Easy Foreign Language Lesson Two introduces foreign language Cognates -- foreign words that are similar to English words.
Easy Language Lesson Three reveals English words that have been adopted into foreign languages, in the lesson English Words in Foreign Languages.
Easy Language Lesson Four focuses on familiar foreign words that have been adopted into English, in the lesson Foreign Words in English.
Easy Language Lesson Five reveals more Foreign Words Spelled Like English.
Easy Language Lesson Six has words similar to English but with accent marks in foreign languages over some letters, in the lesson Foreign Words with Accent Marks.
Easy Language Lesson Seven has foreign words spelled somewhat like English, with part of the word spelled like English, but other parts spelled differently than English. Progressively it will show you foreign words spelled increasingly different from their English relatives, although still recognizable as related.
Easy Language Lesson Eight examines a different topic – a foreign word that looks similar to an English word but has a different meaning -- although it is somehow related enough to suggest the correct meaning of the foreign word.
For example, LIBRARIE in French means bookstore.
So 'librarie' in French is different from the English word it resembles (library) because it means bookstore, but similar in that both have to do with books, making it easier to remember.
Easy Language Lesson Nine introduces foreign False Cognates that reveal how in some cases a treacherous foreign word looks like an English word but has a different meaning that can be misleading.
Easy Language Lesson Ten on the sounds of foreign languages, unlike preceding lessons about look-alikes, focuses on sound-alikes. These are foreign words you know how to pronounce, because there are some foreign words you already know how to pronounce in English.
Sound similarities are far fewer than spelling similarities. So this lesson will take you a step farther from the likenesses between the languages toward the differences. It will prepare you for one of the logical next steps of learning: listening to and then speaking foreign languages.
