French is a part of the language family known as Romance languages, so called because they came from Latin.
Included in this family are Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Romanian; these languages share many similarities, because they all come from a common source.
Despite the similarities, however, each are distinct and different, and many agree that French is one of the most “romantic” languages of all, even if they are referring to romance in a different sense.
