There are three generations of the recorded Dutch language, Old Dutch, Middle Dutch and Standardized or Modern Dutch.
- French: Just like Spanish, French is also a Romance language. It has developed from the Gallo-Romance which was spoken in Gaul, especially in Northern Gaul. It primarily descended from the Roman Empire’s vulgar Latin. French has greatly influenced the English language. French is an official language over 25 countries in 5 different countries and has been voted the fourth sweetest language of the world.
