Material

Original Material

Description  

Lesson level:  For intermediate students and above

Lesson aims: 
- to learn well-known modern English expressions that appeared in Shakespeare's work, such as "All that glisters is not gold", "It's all Greek to me", " The world's mine oyster", etc.
- to improve your listening skills
- to practice sharing opinions in English

Lesson description: 
In this lesson, we will watch a short animated video about Shakespeare's life, language and plays. First, you will listen for gist and then for detail. You will explore the meaning, use and form of a phrase from Shakespeare which is still in common use, learn about different situations when you can use the target idioms, learn other idioms that have similar meaning and do an exercise to check your understanding. After that, we can talk about a time when you were in a similar situation. 

There are 20 episodes :

As dead as a doornail

I'll send him packing

All that glisters is not gold

Strange bedfellows

Though this be madness, yet there's method in't

Wild-goose chase

What's done is done

The world's mine oyster

A tower of strength

Spotless reputation

The green-eyed monster

In a pickle

Forever and a day

Give no words but mum

Pound of flesh

A fool's paradise

Not budge an inch

I must be cruel, only to be kind

Wear my heart upon my sleeve

Greek to me
