The History of English in 10 Minutes

The video contains ten short chapters, namely:
  1. Anglo-Saxon or whatever happened to the Jutes?
  2. The Norman conquest or excuse my English
  3. Shakespeare or a plaque on both his houses
  4. The King James Bible or let there be light reading 
  5. The English of science or how to speak with gravity 
  6. English & Empire or the sun never sets on the English language
  7. The age of the dictionary or the definition of a hopeless task
  8. American English or not English but somewhere in the ballpark
  9. Internet English or language reverts to type
  10. Global English or whose language is it anyway?
