I'm not 100% sure if you were joking or just labouring under a
misunderstanding, so I thought I'd point out that English is largely a
Germanic language, closely related to the various modern Scandinavian
tongues, and also to modern Dutch and German.
French is like a distant cousin (sharing
great-great-great-great-grandparents in Proto-Indo-European) which
recently had a quick affair, so that a few of her features show up in
the offspring ;)

English a germanic language? Impossible! An absurd notion! Lunacy! Exaggeration!
Unadulterated opinionated insanity! Essentially misdirected ill conceived viewpoints.
Troublesome tempestuous tapestries. As tasteless as a tarty tarantella. Significantly
senseless. Quintessentially unquotable. Positively preposterous. Necessarily nonplussed
and nominally abnormal. Exponentially and exceedingly uneventful. Undeveloped,
uncorroborated, irresponsible, and finally, bountifully morally bankrupt. I opine that I
have proven my point.
Yours truly, frankly, ecetera
