Hamlet by William Shakespeare Read Aloud and Discussion Class
Read William Shakespeare's play, Hamlet, and discuss what you've read in this no-stress class.
Let's have fun reading and discussing Hamlet by William Shakespeare. During this 6-week class, we will be reading Hamlet aloud. Don't panic! We'll be using the No Fear Shakespeare Hamlet book. This book puts plain English next to Shakespeare's Early Modern English. Learners will read the translation before each class. This will help them to understand the Modern English version. The play is set in Denmark. The King of Denmark dies. After his death, his wife marries his brother, Claudius....
Learners will develop an understanding (and hopefully an appreciation) of Shakespeare. Their reading fluency will improve. They will also be able to comprehend the play. I will show brief clips of summaries to ensure understanding of each act and scene.

It's a Shakespeare play, so there will be murders, plots of revenge, and devious behavior. Shakespeare also used curse words in his plays.
