Here's some more:
Latin is essentially Greek with all of the interesting bits dropped into
Italian is essentially machine gun fire heard from a long way off.
Dutch is essentially what you know to be English, only heard through
lots of loud background noise.
Russian is essentially an articulated wail.
Old English is essentially mispronounced Modern English spoken while
wearing armor and carrying a roundshield and sword.
