How did the son of a small-town glove maker come to write the greatest plays in the world? Join actor and producer Ben Crystal as he explores Shakespeare's early years in Stratford-upon-Avon.





No I didn't see any single play of Shakespeare . But I have read some quotes of him. He was a great writer.
Let's talk bout the next topic . I'm a software engineer . When I told people that I'm a software engineer they ask me ' can you hake Facebook account ' .
I don't know that what people thought about software engineers. It really annoyed me.
Well I do not have a chance to visit the birthplace of someone famous writer or artist.

I`ve seen some Shakespears plays for example Romeo and Juliet ,A Midsummer Night's Dream and I`ve read many of them. I really would like to visit his birthplace as Shakespeare is my favorite author.

I have never see Shakespeare's play but i studied some of them as a story in the school.
It is amazing to read a story from almost 400 years ago and you feel it expresses you and you interacts with.
I think this is the reason for Shakespeare global appeal .
I don't have a chance to visit the birth place of a famous writer or artist, but i visited some museums in my country and i could see various arts throughout the ages.

I have never seen Shakespeare's plays, but I read the "Hamlet", "Othello" and "Romeo and Juliet", and I was impressed. It was not in original, of course, but the translation i read was amazing. At once I have attended a quest dedicated to Shakespeare. It have been in the opera and ballet theatre where I saw a dressing room, behind the scenes and so on.

One of Shakespeare's play I have ever seen was Romeo and Juliet. It was made in film and I was impressed by nice words of the main characters as well as the dance in the film. However, I do not like the end of this story. It was sad with very young dying.

I haven't seen a Shakespeare play yet. But i hope i will soon.

I haven't visited a famous birthplace writer. can I download this video?

Hi ilush1983,

I'm afraid the videos on LearnEnglish are not available for download for legal and technical reasons. You can, however, watch them online as often as you wish, of course. Pages which are audio-only do have download links for the mp3 files.


Best wishes,
