Summer Term Old English

Registration for Summer Term courses is open. Registration will close on April 15th.


If you want to read the literature of the Anglo-Saxons in its original language, this is the course for you. Begin your Old English studies with this groundbreaking new course. You will learn Old English vocabulary and grammar by reading a newly written graded reader designed to delight with its charming narrative, to educate about medieval England, but most of all, to instruct students in the fundamentals of the Old English language. In our live sessions students will put what they have learned into practice and use Old English actively in conversational activities that will allow them to internalize the language’s vocabulary and grammar.
