@Shenwang Nah. Modern English hasn't a lot in common with Anglo-Norman French. The history of English is actually quite complicated but it's definitely a germanic language (just like Danish, German or Dutch), not a romance one (like French, Spanish or Italian). Sure there are a lot of French words in there, but most of the usual words are of germanic descent and the grammar derives from germanic roots too.
