    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although this was one of the hardest classes I have taken, I learned the roots of the English language as well as why English is so difficult for non-native speakers to learn. Since I knew Swedish as a child as well as studied Latin, Spanish and French, the Roman, Norse, and French influences fell into place, even though English is Germanic in origin.

    Course highlights:

    The fascinating aspect of this class was that Old English followed a syntax similar to Latin and was easier to translate than Middle English. I also had a new appreciation for why our language is hard to learn due to the lack of consistent inflections and the syntax.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    While students are not required to memorize dates, they must be prepared to know the material thoroughly. Take home tests consist of difficult essay questions and strict adherence to MLA format is essential for a passing grade. However, the final project was great. Each student was required to use made-up family/friend words and write each one up as it would appear in the Oxford English Dictionary.
