I love language. I think all writers do. And I can just imagine the use English teachers can make of this. My sister, the English teacher, said it made her want to be back in the classroom for about two minutes.
And no, I'm not kidding. The following video does exactly that--it gives the history of the English language in an easy to understand, humorous fashion--and all in about ten minutes.
So, without any further ado, enjoy! ; )
