Whats most funny about this sentence is, that there is no such thing like the German ,,Du" und ,,Sie" in English. So no Native speaker would even understand what you are trying to say to him ^^

That's right, but in former times the English language also had these two forms "thou" and "you". And actually most languages today do still have this distinction.

Agree.

I think in Japan for example there are 7 different stages of courtesy.

I know this is certainly a case of throwing stones in a glass house here, but all Germans make the same mistakes when they speak English till they die.
 Well, let them
For example, the most annoying Germans think Handy means cell phone.

Do not tell them it's not called a Handy in English under any circumstances,  just know that they are talking about a mobile or cell phone and move on.

Why?
Because Germans know everything better than you. Right?! Deal with it.

Since i know it better, i can tell you that i´ve heard that the word ,,handy" is not only used by the germans for naming cell phones. Even in English speaking countries some people adopt this word.

Its just normal that words from foreign languages get used in a different way when they are assimilated into another language. Did you know that englisch ,,to walk" comes from the german word ,,walken", which comes from the textile industry? And the term ,,to strike" comes from the expression ,,die Segel streichen".

Of course. The historical development of vocabulary is
very exciting.
Other example's
Thomas Carlyle was forced, in 1831, to introduce the German Zeitgeist in the form of time-spirit , and in1903, Mr. G.B. Show gave us superman for Übermensch. Both of these these are adequate and convenient words. Knowledge of German, however, has grown since Caryle's
time, and Zeitgeist is now, not infrequently, used as an English word.
Well, not to mention German Angst, the German Lärche(larch) and Flügelman (flugleman).

Yeah, thats totally correct.

What we learn from all this, is that not only German is influenced by English, its the same thing the other way around.
And as we know English developed out of different older languages, like Celtic, Saxon and Viking languages. Thats why there are plenty english words that sound familiar o germans (House, Hell, Moon, and so on)...

Bless you, my Friend :)

That's correct, but this task could not be completed until certain Asiatic tongues were also taken into account.
In 1833, appears a book on Comparative Philology by Franz
Bopp (1791-1866) whose chief study had been Sanskrit, the
parent tongue of many Indian dialect. This book established the relation of of the principal European languages, as well as of some spoken in Asia, in other words, it drew up the family tree of the "Indo-Eurpean"
tongues.

But it's totally sausage main root is Latin

Hm, i wouldn´t say that Latin ist the main root of German and English. The Name ,,Indo-Germanian" Family says it. But its true that all the mediterranean languages are of Latin origin.

This goes on no cowskin!
