A Dive Into The Past 

Murray McGillivray of the University of Calgary has an interactive site that lets you learn a bit of Old English.

Text is displayed on a split screen with the ability to bring up the glossary for any term by clicking. What a super way to get some help. Remember when you had to struggle with a language text under one elbow and a dictionary under the other. Well maybe everyone here is too young to remember those days.

Listen to the audio files for a feel of Old English in action. They are music to the ears.
