English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now the most widely used language in the world. It is spoken as a first language by the majority populations of several sovereign states, including the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and a number of Caribbean nations.
However, a lot of people think that the English language is kind of vulgar since there is apparently no formalism when it comes to certain words. However, it is one of the most polite languages ever! For instance, the word “you” is the formal version (like “sie” in German, “lei” in Italian or “Usted” in Spanish) and “thou” the informal version (like “Du” in German or “tu” in Italian and Spanish).
Whenever you talk to someone and use the word “you”, you are indeed being very polite! Feel like a gentleman!
