Oh, I do!

But I'll let you know that "to be or not to be" is from a work in Early Modern English, not Middle English.

i wonder if Duolingo would actually put a middle English course! that would be so cool!

Morgoth_Baughlir thank you for the correction

The best known work in Middle English is Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. You really don't need to go out of your way to learn Middle English first to be able to read it.

Personally I'd prefer an Old English course... but Middle English would be pretty cool too!

Anglo-Saxon language would be near to have here.
