Shakespeare is widely regarded as one of the best writers of all time in English language.
The works of Shakespeare are often required as readings in secondary schools. Come and discover the fun of Shakespeare and be better prepared for it in English class.
In this course, students will be introduced to the stories of Shakespeare and learn to bring these stories to life through rehearsed reading and acting. Students will engage with Shakespeare’s text in English of that time, learn the meaning of the text and then demonstrate their understanding of the words through performance.
