Speak like an English person of yore
"Teach Yourself Old English" introduces you to the form of English spoken from A.D. 500 to 1100--clearly and simply. Even without any experience with Old English you will be able to learn the ancient language through authentic texts--poetry, sermons, and even riddles--and grammar that is gradually introduced in manageable bits. On the audio CDs, Old English experts read from "Beowulf" and the "Anglo-Saxon Chronicle."
