Can you use a standard pool cue to break with?

Yes, and most people do so. However, if your cue has a medium or soft tip, as many cues do, this cushions the contact with the cue ball, and lowering the force of the break.

The advantage of using a dedicated break cue is to be able to use a very hard tip to get as much energy into the break as possible.

How do you do English in billiards?

Each time you stroke the cue ball to the left or right of center, some degree of english is applied. (Note that english is not capitalized, it has nothing to do with England.) How much english you get is based on 4 factors - how far from cue ball center contact is made; how long the cue tip stays in contact with the cue ball; condition of the cue tip; condition of the cue ball and pool table playing surface. To increase the amount of english, a soft cue tip is required and the player must accelerate the cue as contact is made with the cue ball, resulting in staying in contact for a longer period. In addition, if you have a cue that you know you will use english with quite regularly, the tip should have the "dime" shape. Cue tips are typically shaped to the curvature of either a nickel or a dime. The shape of a dime allows the tip to stay in contact with the cue ball longer than the nickel shape, improving english.
