I was astounded to learn that approx 45% of all English words originate from French , quelle catastrophe! At least, it probablement makes learning French a little easier – pas de probleme.
À propos learning French I found a website for you to learn French ?!?! Mais non, of course not, well yes it does and it also lists 50 French terms/phrases, which are commonly used in English and, indeed, some you also use in German.
Here are my top 5 favourite for you, which you MAY not already know:
Crème de la crème (Das Feinste vom Feisten)
Entre nous (unter uns)
Gaffe (Ausrutscher/Faux pas)
Né, née (geborener)
Violà et à bientôt aka there you go and see you soon.
