I have never studied any French. For some years, I worked for a company which had many contracts with French partners, and those contracts were all in French. I was able to identify some financial terms when I needed it.

The English language has many influences from many different settlers. The first settlers were the Celts, followed by the Anglo-saxons. Also, the islands were invaded by certain nationalities, for example, Romans, Vikings and Normans (from Normandy in France). So we find many influences from different languages.
