Another great site. I'm loving your threads, Blutwölfin! :)

You can download an English -> Old English / Old English -> English dictionary here. http://www.freelang.net/dictionary/old_english.html

It's a pretty cool program as you can add new words to the dictionary when you come across them.

One thing about learning Old English is that you can't just memorize the words. You have to know the correct word order because it's not the same as in modern English. Reading poetry and other works in Old English will greatly help you in understanding Old English so long as you have a good basis of the vocabulary.
