Detailed Description

The course is designed for directed classroom learning and/or for independent study

This revised edition by Aideen O'Leary and Zhangfeng Xu includes lessons (which include text in Old English, idiom and pronunciation practice), the cassette recordings (now in digitised form), written exercises, a list of grammatical terms and an index. References to Old English grammar books and readers (which you will find from Lesson 4 onwards) have been expanded and updated.

The accompanying audio-visual CD, which is found at the back of this book, contains the original sound recordings; to these visual prompts have been added to aid effective learning.

The CD follows the book’s structure and includes a variety of sound recordings (e.g. readings of the texts, explanations of grammar, practice exercises and grammar drills) along with the visual cues. Together, the book and the CD provide for a fully active learning experience in Old English.
