#ShakespeareLives – 400 Years Celebrating His Life and Works
To coincide with the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, the British Council commissioned us to produce seven short Shakespeare animations aimed at 6 – 11 year olds who are learning English as a second language; originally available only to subscribers of the LearnEnglish Kids: Playtime app, but now free for everyone on the LearnEnglish Kids website.
Six of these films are fun, simplified summaries of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, while the seventh is a short animation of Shakespeare’s life and times. You can view this film, plus ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’ below.
The complete list of films, complete with interactive quiz and tests, include:
