Five Shakespeare's plays on video for B1-B2 students

The British Council has uploaded five Shakesperean plays on video in the Literature UK section of their site Learn English Teen.

2016 sees the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death and to mark the occasion The British Council has put together a number of resources so that (young) students of English get to know Shakespeare and his works better.

The five plays are Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Much Ado about Nothing and The Tempest. The set of materials for each play consists of a 5-minute video, listening comprehension and vocabulary exercises, key and transcript.

An article which explains five famous Shakesperean phrases ('To be or not to be...'; 'Blood will have blood') can also be found here.
