    English Influence on America

    Most of my relatives are British making my main heritage English. One example of English influence on America is in the world of theatre. This happened because more than two hundred years ago, English actors starting coming to America and performing their plays. The works of William Shakespeare, Ben Johnson, and David Garrick have generated many great American plays. Another great example of British influence in America is the field of music. In the 1960s a generation of rock and roll was produced in England. Americans soon became addicted to the musical pieces of Elton John, The Beatles, and the Rolling Stones. This music is still very popular today. English music also influenced the likes of Elvis Presley, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry. English food also has an influence on American Culture. For example, fish and chips, an English originated dish is very popular in America now. Also, an English man designed the iPod and of course is a huge hit in America. Another reason includes is that America speaks English thanks to English explorers who ventured the Americas hundreds of years ago. The earliest English settlers even inhabited the Dominion Colony of Virginia in the U.S, and also formed the Providence of Maryland. For example, the English have had a great impact of soccer here in our country. The first Englishmen in our country started playing soccer here in the U.S., and they continued to motivate more Americans to play the game of soccer. Therefore, all of these examples are great reasons why the English have had a great influence in our country.

    My family’s contribution to the USA

    My family moved here from Australia two years ago. It is just my mum, my brother, my dad, and I. We have many different words for things and we have a very different accent. The Australians brought vegemite, lamingtons, and pavlova to the US and of course our famous meat pies. We brought Crocodile Hunter and our good old Aussie sayings. “Fair dinkum” and G’day mate!” We also made up many slang words for things like “cossie” which means swimsuit. We have many good old Australian songs like “Tie me kangaroo down” and “Waltzing Matilda.” The Aboriginies are the native people of Australia and they contributed a lot to Aussie art. The art we brought from Australia is full of patterns of colourful paint. We are truly unique and my family and I contributed a lot to the USA.

    Italians influence on America
    My heritage is Italian. I am Italian, my dad is, my grandpa, great grandfather, etc. The Italians have influence America in many ways. It all started when the Italians from Sicily and other parts of Italy. They have brought many types of food, such as pizza, pasta and also some delicious desserts as tiramisu or cannolis. We have also influenced the music here too. Opera has become more popular. Italians also were great car designer; people always want Ferrari's, Lamborghini's. Fashion has greatly influenced America with Prada, Gucci, Armani and many more. America now also uses any Italian words in their sentences.
