This review is from: Old English Poems, Prose and Lessons: Anglo-Saxon Language (Audio CD)
I wanted a basic text book on Anglo-Saxon for beginners and this is perfect. it's very well set out and is capable of being used as an introduction to the language (as in my case) or for more detailed study

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful language, 5 Jun. 2011

As ever, the product was delivered promptly and in impeccable condition by the supplier. I had found great difficulty in learning Old English purely from text, and realised I needed to hear the language spoken, to have an audio image of it. Stephen Pollington's readings are wonderful - elegant, clear, and with hints of the sounds of many European languages glimpsed in the enunciation. I love Old English!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but some errors, 14 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Old English Poems, Prose and Lessons: Anglo-Saxon Language (Audio CD)
A great idea, and in many ways very helpful. As a mature learner, though, sometimes more explanation is actually useful, rather than distracting, and I find I need other tests to clarify and complement this one. There are a number of errors in the text, too, which the editor really should have picked up, but if you have other texts with which to cross-check then it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars The language brought back to life., 17 Feb. 2015

This review is from: Old English Poems, Prose and Lessons: Anglo-Saxon Language (Audio CD)
The readings on this CD are excellent. They are spoken convincingly as clearly, making it actually sound like a language brought back to life, like the speaker actually understands and means what he is saying, rather than something alien that has just been memorised and spewed back out. It's definitely worthwhile getting with the book.
