Many still follow the Old English but if we write in modern English, the two will differ. Like, in Old English I believe coma (,) was never allowed before the word 'and' but in modern English there are many examples where we write as ', and'. Let's share differences between Old English and modern English.

Old English also uses hard terms that are hard to understand just like in prayers such as 'thee, thy, an thou.'

Old English is very interesting, but only as ocasional cool feature like reading classic books, besides that I have only seen it in movies and videogames
