English Class – Day 1

Hello World

Today is Introductory class. Don’t get stressed. It’s not like maths and other classes. I like English, it is a simple language and tough too if any fault is there.

English is the Official language of 67 countries. In Some of 67 countries, English is official but not a majority native language. It is the third most common native language in the world, after Mandarin and Spanish. English has developed over the course of more than 1,400 years. It is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand, and is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa, and South Asia. It is the most widely learned second language and an official language of the United Nations, of the European Union, and of many other worlds and regional international organisations. It is the most widely spoken Germanic language, accounting for at least 70% of speakers of this Indo-European branch.

 

Compared to other languages, English may seem simple, but that is probably because most people don’t realize it is full of crazy inventions, misinterpretations, mistakes, strange words, and needless words! aur nhi to kya yar….Swims will be swims even when turned upside down. Such words are called ambigrams.

Ye thi english wali baate, ab aate hai iske facts par and interesting cheejo par.Let’s take a look at interesting facts about the English language:

The shortest, oldest, and most commonly used word is “I.”

“I am.” is the shortest complete sentence in the English language.

Did you know that ‘enneacontakaienneagon’ is actually a word in the English language? (And you thought pronouncing supercalifragilisticexpialidocious was difficult?). In fact, the meaning of the word is just as bizarre as the word itself: it’s a shape with ninety-nine sides. Ye mat socho ki ye kitna lamba word hai,scroll down for more. Hahaha

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is NOT the longest word in English. This extra long word (that approximately means “fantastic”) was popularized by the movie Mary Poppins and was eventually added to the dictionary. What you probably didn’t know is that there is a word that is longer—yes longer—than this one. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is a type of lung disease caused by inhaling ash and dust. Go ahead and try pronouncing that!

It’s enough for today. Hai na. Come again tomorrow. Thanks
