English is spoken by 322 million native speakers in United Kingdom, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa etc. In addition to these, English is the official language of many former British colonies.
English is a Germanic language, proceeding from the Old English and Middle English, which acquired a lot of vocabulary from French.
Countable nouns generally have singular and plural forms. In most cases the plural is formed from the singular by adding -[e]s (as in dogs, bushes), although there are also irregular forms (woman/women, foot/feet, etc.)
