House-hus, Man-mann, Queen-kvinne and so on.
actually English evolved from the Saxon language, when Saxons and Angles crossed from Northern Germany to the south and east of Britain beginning in the early 5th century.
Their language, Anglo-Saxon or Old English, transformed into Middle English.

The German language of today is quite similar to English.
You must have in mind however, that the German language of today is an artificial creation promoted from the 19th century onward. Almost till then the South and North of the Germany could not understand each other and had a separate cultural heritage.

Dear Nordic cousin.
