Sweet's Primer is a helpful supplement to our Old English class. I am currently teaching this class as an elective at a prep-school in Irving, TX. Sweet is brief in his explanations (the entire grammar section is less than 50 pages, I think). And somehow, he makes it seem more simple for the students than Baker, or Mitchell and Robinson. This brevity is helpful because my students, who have already taken several years of Latin, get overwhelmed by all of OE declensions and sound mutations, etc.

Do keep in mind that the purpose of our course is to learn enough grammar to read selected texts and Beowulf. It is only a two-semester course, so we don't spend a lot of time going into the deeper academic and phonological interests of OE.

As a teacher, the main thing I find lacking in many of the OE primers is student exercises at the end of each chapter. Many times, I end up making my own quizzes and homework exercises to help the students become more familiar with the concepts. However, Baker's online workout room is fantastic for this.

Sweet's Primer is the classic, and you can't beat the price.

It might be an old publication, but it is straight forward - it delivers OE grammar in an uncomplicated, easy to understand way. There is also a nice selection of practice readings in the end. The style of the textbook is very old - fashioned - it does not seek to entertain or engage the reader the way more modern textbooks do today, but it does deliver good info in a straightforward, no-nonsense way. It is a nice supplemental reference to keep on-hand.

This Kindle version is excellent. Layout is perfect and all the special characters and diacritical signs display perfectly. Sometimes books of this kind are OCR'd without even basic proofreading but not this one. And Sweet's is still one of the best of its kind.

Old-fashioned, as you'd expect from a 19th century academic, but comprehensive coverage of grammar with lots of examples. Occasionally confusing, where the example doesn't seem to illustrate what it's supposed to, but probably that's me missing some subtle point. It's hard work, but learning a new language is always hard, and Old English is intrinsically difficult by nature of its archaic structures. If you're willing to persevere, read and reread, I would recommend this book.

I have been reading Tolkien for some time which has lead me deeper and deeper into his roots. Many of these roots go down into the Anglo Saxon past. This volume has been helpful to me to begin to understand Old English with out taking a course.

I love the free books for the Kindle. They greatly expand our homeschool reading beyond what we can find at our library as well as allow us to keep a copy as long as we need. It has also been fun to compare how the topic has been taught over time.
