You can find the BBC Radio adaptation on Audible here:
 6 files available upon enrollment
All materials are provided as part of the enrollment fee, including a study guide with quiz questions and a detailed textbook with textual notes and written exercises. Other than that, students simply need paper and pen or pencil.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There are violent scenes in this play, as there are in all of Shakespeare's tragedies, but there is no gore or grisly detail.
