In time, these lessons and "stubs" will be migrated to the Buzzwords site.
Until then, consider them historical.

Chaucer and Middle English

Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

1. Have you ever heard of Chaucer? Have you read anything by him? Either talk about him, or read a little more to learn about him.
2. Do you know any French words? Can you use your dictionary to find some French words in English?
3. Look at the opening lines of "The Canterbury Tales" in the lesson, and compare them to the translation. How many can you connect (like "shoures" and "showers")?
