Old English with Leofwin
This is a new approach to learning old English as a living language. Leofwin and his family are your guides through six lively, entertaining, topic-based units. New vocabulary and grammar are presented in context, step by step, so that younger readers and non-language specialists can feel engaged rather than intimidated. The author has complemented the text with a wealth of illustrations throughout. This volume is the first part of the course.

Background information on the Anglo-Saxon way-of-life.
The author, Matt Love, was born long ago in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex. He graduated from Sussex University in 1977, and has taught Modern Languages for many years. He is usually quite poor company, but brightens up somewhat should the conversation turn to language or history.
