NEW! Expanded Version! This is a thoroughly entertaining glimpse into the origins and development of our native language with enough English trivia thrown in to satisfy even the language experts among us. In his unique style of story-telling, Professor Elliot Engel reveals why our language developed in such a fascinating way from the Celts, to the Anglo-Saxons, to the invading French. The origins of some of our common words and phrases that we use daily are sure to surprise you. Professor Engel’s videos have been described as “the perfect introductory lectures” because they combine just the right mixture of history, information, and humor, and because they tend to generate future interest and study by the viewer. Viewers feel like they have been made privy to “inside information” or that they have had a personal experience with the character or subject matter. Professor Engel’s lectures are unforgettable, and its almost guaranteed that the viewer will be quoting the professor or telling others about the experience. Professor Elliot Engel brings the history of our language to life in a way that will appeal to young and old alike.“The crown jewel of the entire lecture series.” Wisconsin Bookwatch
