Which edition do you have again? I have the fourth edition: A Guide to Old English Revised with Prose and Verse Texts and Glossary copyright 1986.
As for which resource to use, I haven't actually looked through AGtOE
, so I'm not sure how well directed to the beginner it is.
I have a pdf called oe_grammar
that's 89 pages and a possible text for us.(Edit: Instead of including the content of the preface, I realized that I got the pdf from Mike, which is what he used in his TAC. Here is the public-domain digital PDF. It's called "An Old English Grammar and Exercise Book” by C. Alphonso Smith (Louisiana State University, 1896)).
I have bookmarked two sites with OE lessons, which are:
1) An OE course at the University of Calgary
Notes: Apparently the course content was taken down at what looks like the end of January of last year. I was able to find the content, however, through the Internet Wayback Machine.
2) A guide by some random person
Notes: The guide might not be fully finished. In his About this Guide
section, the author explains why he decided to write the guide. He apparently started with AGtOE
, but didn't like it and he explains why:
There is also, of course, Teach Yourself Old English
, which I have and I'm up for using. It does seem to be less technical than AGtOE
, but I know not everyone like TY materials. If we go with it, I could provide the audio for it.
