Our Slippery Mother Tongue: A Light History of English


Please join us for a speaking engagement with the ever-popular Dr. Elliot Engel.


He is a scholar, performer, and storyteller whose infectious enthusiasm and radiant wit create an imaginative and delightful presentation. 


Through historical incidents and analysis and always with humor, Dr. Engel shows how and why the English language developed in such an amazing way. He explains how the Germans and French contributed in their different fashions to shaping the English of today, and he gives Chaucer his deserved recognition as the first great master of our language.

-Video File Magazine

"Dr. Engel is one of the most dynamic speakers I have ever met. I love his enthusiasm, quick wit, and sense of humor. His programs are entertaining but researched in infinite detail and filled with little known facts which intrigue me."
-Mary Louise, ten-time traveler with Dickens Destinations

"The most painless way to learn that I've ever experienced."
-Jean, Roxboro, N.C.
