History of the English Language

History of the English Language | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
A short history of the origins and development of the English language, from Old English to Modern English.

 

Old English (450-1100 AD)

Part of Beowulf, a poem written in Old English.

The invading Germanic tribes spoke similar languages, which in Britain developed into what we now call Old English. Old English did not sound or look like English today. Native English speakers now would have great difficulty understanding Old English. Nevertheless, about half of the most commonly used words in Modern English have Old English roots. The words be,strong and water, for example, derive from Old English. Old English was spoken until around 1100.

A Wonderful Exercise in Creative Thinking

A Wonderful Exercise in Creative Thinking | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This morning Sir Ken Robinson tweeted this excellent video clip that is basically a creative thinking exercise done with third graders. The lesson that  the video highlights is the importance of how teachers word their questions. Students creativity, as is shown from this experiment, is tightly linked to the way the teacher put his\her question.

Oxford English Dictionary breaks own rule, lists 'tweet'

Oxford English Dictionary breaks own rule, lists 'tweet' | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Tweeting has become so popular that the Oxford English Dictionary broke one of its own rules to add 'tweet' to its lexicon. The addition stands out because it breaks an Oxford English Dictionary rule that a word needs to be in use for 10 years to be considered for inclusion. Since the Twitter social network just turned seven in March, the word aficionados broke their own rule by three years.
