English has borrowed words from other languages, too: the Spanish ‘guitar’, Italian ‘bank’, Czech ‘robot’, Chinese ‘tea’ or Arabic ‘coffee’ and ‘sugar’.
Today a lot of languages borrow words from English: job, CD, chips, pop-corn, supermarket, business, manager, leader, make-up, coach, outsider, hot-dog, hamburger…
