The History of English


Though the title of this blog sounds dull, I’ve come across some spiffy videos on YouTube that we can all enjoy. A quick fun look at the history of English – a little humour, a little rude, all very English. Enjoy.


Thank you to the people from the Open University in the UK. If you are interested in looking at more entries about English, use this link:

About mrsmissoveness

I'm Heading the EAL dept and Teaching ESL Students in the Mainstream Classroom (TESMC) trainer on Jeju island, South Korea. I'm enjoying the IT revolution in the classroom and discovering new IT tools to support my lessons. Reading is at the top of my list: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go" Dr Seuss, I can read with my eyes shut. Learning Korean is my biggest challenge at this point in time. However, a word a day is my target.
