Students will learn new things about the English Language and understand why it is the way it is.
I have an M.Ed in TESOL (English teaching). I have also studied history for most of my life including about 50 hours worth of this History of English Podcast up through Middle English. I also run a podcast on my own so I'm familiar with these.
This is a weekly class so no homework is necessary. I will give some suggested things to do after class but none of it is necessary.
Students should bring a notebook and pencil/pen if they want to write things down.
As this is a weekly class there is no assessment given.
