Evolution of English (mini-course)

01:563:382 - 1.5 creditsEnglish Course

For many of us, a native language is both intimately familiar and profoundly foreign. We can speak it, but we do not know how it came to be. This course offers a survey of the one thousand years of English and its development. The focus of the class is on the ways in which encounters with other languages have shaped and enriched the English language, ultimately creating the language we know today. No prior knowledge is required or assumed.
