Dutch has taken a lot of french (and english) words, to much to make a complete list here.
At the other hand, french has taken some (old) dutch words too.

I have to be carefull for false friends (words that sound french but are not french).

It could be very helpfull to have lists of similar words in english, french and in my case dutch, but it may be a lot of work to create it.
