These tribes, the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes, crossed the North Sea. Angles came from Englaland and their language was called Englisc from which the words, England and English are derived. The invading Germanic tribes spoke similar languages which in Britain developed into Old English. Then, the language developed gradually it became dominant in Britain and was called Middle English . Later, due to the expansion of British empire English evolved into an international language and was named modern English.
