The History of English is a series of 10 very short animated segments, totaling about 10 minutes, from The Open University that chronicle the origins of the language, its growth and expansion into the bazillion word behemoth we know and love today.
Narrated in a nicely cheeky tone, it’s amusing as well as informative.
