Learning to speak Old English

We have to do recitations in Old English in my Grammar & Language class.  I’m currently working on a passage from Beowulf.  It’s strange, speaking in an ancient language.  The words feel so foreign in my mouth.  It’s weird to think that from them came the modern English we speak today.

Watch out, world.  Soon I’m going to be this guy:

Just kidding.  I don’t think I’m dedicated enough to become a full-out Old English scholar, nor do I have time to take up the lyre (or whatever instrument that is).

But it’s fun to think about.
