H119: Could I Chat with an Anglo-Saxon?: A History of the English Language in Splash Hilary 2019 (Feb. 23, 2019)
1 in 5 people in the world speak English today, but where did it come from? In a very brief history of English we will examine its origins, how it has been shaped by history and time, the current situation and the potential future. There is an immense gulf between Old English and Modern English, but by looking at short bits of texts this class will show how drastically things have changed, and how little anything has changed at all.
