Olde English was an art in itself. While today if you can speak it, you are probably considered to be pretty talented, in the past it was just the perfect way to communicate. Some would argue that it was much more difficult to speak, but with any language, there will always be elements that are a little more difficult. Luckily, anyone who has English skills today will be able to make some good educated guesses into what the words of the past really meant. If that sounds like you, then get ready to test all of that knowledge!
One great thing about the English language is that it is always evolving. As we start to evolve as people, we can modify our language with it. While we evolve with the times, it's important to stop and appreciate where the language once started. The start of Olde English was in the 1100s, when it was the first form of English known to be spoken. We've come a long way since then, but there are still some similarities.
So, if you think you could communicate with the people of the past, it's your time to shine. Take the quiz to see how well you know your Olde English!
