Here, I’ve collected 5 interesting and unknown facts about English, which you will definitely enjoy:

# Martin Van Buren was the only American President who did not speak English as his first language; Thomas Jefferson claimed to know six.

# There are two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: “abstemious” and “facetious.”

# The next edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, the world’s most definitive work on the language, will never be printed because of the impact of the internet on book sales.

# French and English are the official languages of the Olympics.

# “Four” is the only number whose number of letters in the name equals the number.
