This is a simple introduction to Old English for students with little or no linguistic knowledge.

It also includes long extracts from popular Old English works for use in the classroom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction Aug. 13 2013
By Vince Cabrera - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm not familiar with other Old English texts, so I can't say if there's others out there that are better. But this is quite an easy read that gets you learning words and translating sentences very quickly and easily. Definitely worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars beginning old english Feb. 3 2009
By Park Young Bae - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This basic introduction to old english(NOT Old English!)is an excellent
guide for students in Korea and Japan who want to have a quick look at
the overall review of old english language and literature as a subsidiary
text in their old english classes. Very practical and explicit explana-
tions on the selected old english language and literature. Highly recommendable for scholars whose major is NOT old english.
