As a language, English is remarkably versatile. From its beginnings on the Jutland peninsula nearly fifteen hundred years ago to its more recent status as lingua franca, English has been able to adapt and change constantly. If you are interested in discovering the roots of the English language, then studying with an Old English tutor can help. Varsity Tutors can help you locate a qualified tutor who can help you get a grasp on this fascinating language.
Old English tutoring can cover a variety of topics including:
- Written language
- Changes over time
- Old English literature
As the early Germanic tribes crossed the North Sea and settled in modern-day England, they brought with them what would develop into Old English. It's no wonder that reading or listening to Old English nowadays sounds more like listening to German or some other Northern European language. After the Norman invasion of England, English began to borrow more heavily from French and became more Latinate, though it clearly has retained some of its Germanic origins.
