LauraM Posted September 4, 2013 Report Share Posted September 4, 2013 I'm curious to know if any of the native and non-native English speakers here have studied the works of Shakespeare. The English of Shakespeare -- Early Modern English -- of course is different from our contemporary English and so it has its challenges for all of us. Have you studied in school or on your own? Has studying Shakespeare helped you in your mastery of English? What works have you particularly enjoyed? Have you taken part as an actor in a Shakespeare play?When I was in high school I studied Shakespeare quite a bit and read several of the major plays, including "Hamlet," "Romeo and Juliet," "Macbeth," "King Lear" and others. We also studied some of the sonnets. I found the language quite fascinating overall. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
