Hello,
I'm sorry to hear that. Can you please give a little more information? Can you see videos if you visit this page? Also, what web browser are you using? Are you able to try another computer to check if it has the same problem?

Great!!! I love English literature. I was fortunate to be in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace 3 years ago... it was fantastic... I'm afraid I missed the Globe and Dickens Museum in London... but I hope I can visit them someday... I was in Jane Austin's Museum in Bath... I love her works... I'm reading "Sense & Sensibility" now and I finished "Pride & Prejudice" about a month ago... I read them in English... I don't understand all but as I watched the movies already I catch most. I think it's a good exercise to improve your English: watch the movie and then read the book.
Thanks to the British Council LearnEnglish team... keep doing this sort of things... Cheers!!!

Thank you. I loved this video. For 5 minutes you had shown rather a lot. I hope will be more videos on this topic.

hi. i just wanted to ask where can i find more information about sheakspeare and his life in this site.

Hi Najada,
If you're interested in Shakespeare, there was a whole episode of Word on the Street connected to him. We also have a page about some lines from As You Like It, one of his plays.
You might also be interested in reading about this year's World Shakespeare Festival. One of the performances there was Henry VI, Part 2 performed by the National Theater of Albania.

Hi All 

Is a very intersting pagane
 

Literature is Great -part 1 (task -4) is very difficult

Hi ! I don't know many thing about English literature. Yet I have read one piece of theater written by Shakespeare. I believe that it was "Mac Beth". I don't read a lot of English writers, because in French literature there are many "competitors" like Moliere , Voltaire , Zola ,Balzac. Which don't prevent me to see that in English literature the spirits and the ghosts are almost always present .

Thanks a lot! Excellent video and activities! Cristina
