That's kind of a misconception: as English is a western germanic
language it's not that German made its way into English but English is
*based* on German.

You would be amazed how many words are similar or even pronounced
identically - like Haus/house, Maus/mouse, Finger/finger etc. pp. The
similarities between English and the dialect spoken in coastal regions
of northern Germany ("Plattdeutsch") are even more striking.

So you already do speak German - to some extent. In case you don't
believe me or wonder where "Anglo-Saxon" comes from, start here:

A bit OT, I know. But I couldn't resist. Hope you're not offended. ;)

Kind regards!
