Language is always changing. In a society where life continues year after year with few changes，the languages do not change either. The earliest known languages had difficult grammar but a small，limited vocabulary. Over the century，the grammar changed，and the vocabulary grew. For example，the English and Spanish people who came to America during the sixteenth century gave names to all the new plants and animals they found. In this way，hundreds of new words were introduced into English and Spanish vocabularies. Today life is changing very fast，and language is changing fast too.
There are several major (主要的) language families in the world. Some scientists say there are nine main families，but other scientists divided them differently. The languages in each family are connected，and scientists think that they came from the same parent language. About 3% of the people in the world speak languages that are not in these major families.

When I was a little girl, my brothers and I collected stamps for many years. My mother didn’t use to work during the week, but she worked in the post office near our house on Saturdays, and she used to bring home all the new stamps as soon as they were issued (发行).
On the day of the World Cup football final in London in 1966, we were very excited because England were playing West Germany in the final. When we were having lunch, my mother told us to go to the post office straightaway after the match if England won, but she didn’t tell us why. At 2 o’clock my mother went back to work as usual, while the rest of the family were watching the football on TV at home. Although she wasn’t watching the match, she was listening to it on the radio.
England won 4:2 and so my brothers and I ran to the post office. As we burst in, my mother was standing behind the counter. She was waiting to sell us a very special limited edition with ENGLAND WINNERS on each stamp. We were over the moon.
We still have it today，and perhaps it is worth a lot of money.
