Students start by discussing a very well-known idiom. They then consider some true/false statements about Shakespeare and idioms before reading a text to check their ideas.

Topics: Idioms & Shakespeare
 
Level: C1

Time: 40–55 minutes

Aims:
  • To enable students to learn the meaning of six idioms which come from Shakespeare, which are all frequently used today.
  • To help students to understand a little about the contribution that Shakespeare made to the English language as it is today.
  • To help students understand the difference between literal and idiomatic meaning, and raise their awareness about idioms in general.
