Quick Write 062011 "English teacher should learn Old English?"

I must say that I was one of those diligent students who loved reading Japanese classics and always obtained A+ on the subject. I also like Chinese classics, which is partly because its syntax system is somehow similar to that of English. My favorite Japanese classic pieces are “Essays in Idleness (Tsurezuregusa)” for its author’s astute perspectives and “The Tale of the Heikes (Heikemonogatari)” for its dramatic verses. Let me go onto the point, now. Yes, I’m aware that English teachers should have the knowledge of Old English or classis English. Actually, I majored in international laws in the law department, and didn’t study much about English literature or its history. As long as I teach TOEIC or TOEFL classes, I condense grammatical points into the ones which are required to deal with those tests, and haven’t find genuine necessity to touch on the Old English or the origin of the English language. That said, it should be a problem that I cannot instantly explain why there are regular verbs and irregular verbs, and that there are weak verbs and strong verbs. Probably I won’t find many opportunities to share the knowledge with my students in the current teaching circumstances, but as one of those who claim themselves as an English teacher, I do find the necessity of having the “basic” knowledge on how the current Modern English has been developed…
