It is true, vidi and vici may also be found in the English Dictionary (they are in mine), but I found vidi and vici as designated as Latin, not English, and I found them only as part of the compound entry, "veni, vidi, vici", and not as separate words in the dictionary. 

I almost did not include vara in my list.  In the dictionary I use, it is of Spanish origin, is defined with Spanish and Portuguese pronunciation, and is used primarily in Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries, yet it was not designated as a foreign word. 

I do suspect there might be words that fit the pattern in other English Dictionaries.  Vidi and vici might even be found in those.
