Have you ever driven a Volkswagen? In German, the word "folk" (volk) means people. It’s also used in English when referring to people. The "l" in "folk" is silent, and the word is often in the plural form.
Folk is also a style of music, art, and literature that is created by ordinary people or represents people’s dreams and desires:
That’s all folks!
(This is kind of an expression that means something has come to a conclusion.)
