Marvelous class, James.

Brazil is a recent country (not so new, by the way), thus I think it is difficult to find a general word in English which came from Brazil.

Brazilian nuts, the fruit, does not count, right? This is not a word. Neither brazilian wax. :-)

Bilal ben cheikh

James, thank for lesson but you forgot most common foreign word :) The word which is all around us. It is a robot! And it is from Czech language. It was first time mentioned in sci-fi play R.U.R (can find on wiki) by Karel Čapek in 1920. Did you know it? It comes from word “robota” old Czech expression of hard work (usually in agriculture or factory).

Ok,now I clearly misunderstood: the 1st question(on the quiz) about the hamburger! Lol, now the word ham-bur came from France right, but my miss understanding was from the question where does the word hamburger comes from silly me chose America.. now I get it! Thanks James you is truly a blessing.. thank you!

Beautiful-n-and-out

I think it’s too difficult for me to remember all these words,but I will show my effort to you.
In fact,you speak so fast that I couldn’t follow you at all some occasionally,please slow down to fit our ears,thank you.

Hi James, I so love your lessons. thanx alot.
so, what about Russian wosds, do you have some in your language? apart from Balalayka and matryoshki =)

0lga

    Yes, we do! “Balaclava”, “intelligentsia”, “taiga” (there is a lot of taiga in Canada), “czar” (from *tsar*), and “beluga” (the white Arctic whale) are a few.

    engVid Moderator

      Sorry, but Balaklava is the Crimean Tatar word (Balıqlava, Балыкълава).
      Is the name of the settlement in Crimea.
      This name is mentioned for 1200 years before the first occupation of the Crimea Russian Empire.

      tosterPavel

        I did not know that! Thanks!
