While all languages have various phonetic differences and cultural peculiarities, all languages in the world have a few related origins. For this reason, etymologists and language researchers group languages into families.
One family is the Germanic family, of which English is a member, even though English borrows heavily from Romance languages like Spanish and French.
Minna Sundberg, an artist, created an excellent tree to visualize where many Indo-European languages came from. Enjoy!
