I think this is an excellent site with some useful information. I found the
set of pronunciation exercises clear and carefully stepped for ease of student
use. I can see pulling up this site and letting students listen to the first 20
lines of the ?Prologue? as a way of introducing The Canterbury Tales in my
British Literature course. And this is only one of the tutorials offered to
students to make them comfortable with Chaucer?s pronunciation, grammar, and
vocabulary. There is also a ?Teach Yourself? Chaucer section that not only
provides support for Middle English grammatical patterns and vocabulary, but
includes several tales to work on, including quizzes to take at completion.
The bibliographic information is rich as well.

Technical Remarks:

Everything worked for me, including the pronunciation exercises that I tried. I
especially like the links to other information, all of which (of those I tried)
worked and were worth investigating.

I didn't get passed the link that provided pronunciations of Middle English
vowels, dipthongs, and consonants in isolated words and in example sentences
from Chaucer, though there are links to other kinds of information. I got hung
up in the sounds of Middle English.

Technical Remarks:

On the pronunciation pages, the technology assumed is how to operate an audio
tape player. Click on the facsimile arrow, and the word or sentence is said
(double arrow for fast forward or rewind). Quite transparent for anyone who has
ever used a cassette player.
