Throughout the course I have read a lot of about the empires. In this essay I will discuss the motives for spread of two empires; Mongol empires and Ottoman empires. My thesis statement for this essay is that both of these empires (Mongol empires and Ottoman empires) were having economic, exploratory; ethnocentric; political and religious reasons for their expansion. The Ottoman Empire was an imperial state that was established in 1299 in the wake of growing out of the separate of a few Turkish tribes.

Egypt was open to quite a few different ethnicities during the Saite reign. Much speculation is given that they may have led to some of the Greek, Carion and Phoenician influences of that day.

Firstly, it is worth mentioning that both Polish and English language originate from the oldest language in the world, called Proto-Indo-European. It came to Europe approximately 3000 years B.C. along with the people who travelled there from Asia. As a result of the Proto-Indo-European community dividing into smaller ethnic groups in pursuit of better life conditions, the culture and languages of those particular groups also became different(zróżnicowany) and that is how the Indo-European language families came into existence.
