Uh... European is no language. Let me give you a short explanation about the European languages:

There are 2 European 'trees' which are important now: the west Germanic and the Latin. The Western Germanic consists of German, Dutch and English. Most of the words are somewhat the same but the English language deviated, due to the 100 Years’ war (especially England vs. France), because the French took the power of England so that's why the English were gonna use more and more French words (which come from the Latin).

'Branch' is a word which is copied from the French language and it's also used in west Germanic. The word 'branch'...

in the west Germanic languages:
English: branch
Dutch: branche
German: branche

in the Latin languages:
French: branche
Italian: not similar
Spanish: not similar

Can you translate this Dutch sentence into English? Here it is:

'Ik ga naar school.'

I'm gonna make a word game in a new conversation thread (main group). It'll be fun!

There's also an English/German relation to the Scandinavian languages :-) Most English towns with -by or -thorp at the ending of their names, are old viking settlements. Oh, the dutch sentence: I am guessing "I go to school"?

Yes there is a relation between the Scandinavian and the west Germanian languages. I tried to read a Danish text which I got together with a PAB order and it isn't that hard :) Your translation of the Dutch sentence is right!

Hehe.. The 'naar'-bit threw me off some, but i figured it didn't mean 'near' as that would make little sense in that sentence :-)

You're right, Danish is not too hard either if you use other German-related languages as key :-)The Danish version of the Dutch sentence would be:

'Jeg går i skole'

The 'å' is pronounced something like the 'o' in modern.
