No, it is a Romanic language derived from Latin. The appended language tree shows its roots.
No. If anything, it caused the opposite. For example, England was native to Germanic people [Germanic language], later conquered by Romans [Romance language], later reconquered by Germanic people (Danes) [Germanic language], later conquered by Normans and French [Romance language], and reestablished as the state of England. Since England had been under Germanic control longer, Germanic influence is more widespread, which is why the English language is labeled as a Germanic language. However, you may have noticed large similarity between English and French. This is because when the French conquered England, the French language was introduced. English is truly a fusion of Germanic languages and French. English is a Germanic language and an indirect-Romance language. Some people mistake English for a Romance language because of the similarity between English and Romance languages. The same applies to all of Western Europe. Western Europe is split into two language regions: the Germanic north and the Romance south. The Romans controlled most of Western Europe for a thousand years and were more present in the south. Here, they maintained predominant influence and spread the Latin language, which gave birth to the Romance languages (French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.). In the north, Germanic peoples maintained independence from the Roman Empire. They also conquered separate lands during the Roman Empire's reign, brought about the collapse of the Roman Empire, and later continued conquering. Here, they were able to maintain predominant influence and spread Germanic languages, giving birth to the modern Germanic languages (German, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, etc.).
No, not at all. English is a Germanic language. It evolved from West Germanic and is still closely related to other Germanic languages such as German, Dutch, and Norwegian. The reason why we have so many words of Latin origin is that we have taken in a lot of foreign borrowings from the French, but the core of the English language is still very much Germanic.
Romance languages are languages based of Latin, the language of the Roman Empire. Some Romance languages include French, Italian, and Portuguese. Germanic languages are languages that originate from Northern Europe (and Western Europe) and are all related as they were created by the Germanic people. Some Germanic languages include German, Swedish, and Dutch. English is a controversial Western European language. It is referred to as a Germanic language, however, it is not completely Germanic. English is heavily based off of French as well as Danish-Germanic languages, due to the British Isles being ruled by the Danes for a period of time and then being switched to French rule. English is more Germanic than anything, so to dumb it down, it would be acceptable to say 75% of English is Germanic while 25% is Romance (in which case, it would be French).
A Germanic European language spoken in most areas historically part of the British empire. It was first spoken by Germanic tribes in Southern Scandinavia and since then has been influenced by Danish, Anglo-Norman, Old French, Modern French, Latin, Greek, and lately other languages. It has a simple Germanic grammar that follows a lot of Latin rules.
