34.Borrowed Words Do you often use shampoo or put ketchup on your food? Have you ever visited a sauna? If you think these words are originally English, you'd better think again. In fact, each of these words comes from a different language! Shampoo, for example, is actually a word from the Hindi language in India. This word originally meant“massage.” In hair shops in India, barbers massage your head while washing your hair. Over time, British people in India used this word to mean a liquid that cleans hair.Almost everyone knows what ketchup is. People all over the world like to pour this tomato sauce on French fries or sandwiches. This word is originally Chinese (from a fish sauce). In the 1600s, British and Dutch sailors brought this fish sauce to Europe. Over time, people changed the sauce by adding tomato flavor to it,but the name basically stayed the same.Sauna, a popular type of public steam room and shower facility, comes from the Finnish language. Duringone of the European Olympics, athletes from Britain and Germany saw Finnish athletes use saunas aftertraining. Later, the general public all over Europe started using this style of bathing, too. Now, we still use this word to describe all kinds of steam rooms. English is full of many wonderful borrowed words from many languages. Perhaps English should change its name to Eng-hin-chi-fin-fre-ger-ital-span-ish!

39.Songkran In my country, Thailand, our most important festival is Songkran. It's our New Year festival. It always happens in April, and it's always a lot of fun. Everyone knows about this festival because you can throw water on other people! This brings good luck for the next year. You can buy delicious food on the street, like papaya or chicken with special sauce. Many people go back to their hometowns during Songkran. They want to spend time with their families. On the first day, they clean their houses. On the second day, they play games with water. On the third day, they visit the temple and wash the Buddha statues. They use water with flowers in it, so the statues smell nice and fresh. Songkran is my favorite time of the year. Thailand 泰國 Buddha statues 佛陀雕像
