Norwegian and certainly Modern Icelandic - have a lot in common with the Old Norse I have found a surprising number of German and English words also - that have a relationship with the Old Norse

Subject: [norse_course] modern language
Hi everyone,
I know I haven't written in the group but I've been
reading the emails for some time, and was wondering if
someone could tell me which modern language would be
most useful in starting to learn Old Norse? I plan to
take a few language classes this summer and wanted to
start learning Norse at a snail-slow pace, thank you!
