ANYWAY!

The Romanic languages, or sometimes referred to as the Romance languages, are a group of languages belonging to the Italic subfamily of the Indo-European family of the world. Among them are French, Italian, Spanish, Romanian, Portuguese, Occitan, Catalan, and many more! If you listen carefully, they do sound quite similar, right?

Right!

Same goes to English and German, they belong to another group of languages called the Germanic family. Dutch is also under the same group.

Can you see the difference? Yes you can, of course! Yeah! Sailorsim boleh! And I’m talking to myself in a chat window! whoo hoo. yeah. =___=’’’
