Exploring English: Shakespeare
An invitation to explore the life, work and legacy of William Shakespeare
For the attention of
Universidad de Piura
Dear Mr. Klauer::
We want to invite you to be a part of Shakespeare Lives, a worldwide programme of activity to celebrate Shakespeare’s work and his enduring global influence and impact. The first activity which we encourage you, your colleagues or your students to join is a Shakespeare MOOC.
Our video tutor will guide you through the course and look at the legacy of words and phrases that Shakespeare introduced to the English language. Short quizzes will check your understanding and you’ll be asked to share your ideas and opinions on the topics Shakespeare raises.
The course will be run in partnership with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
The material is designed for non-native English speakers who have studied English to around intermediate level (approximately B1 on the CEFR)
Please feel free to share this message with your colleagues or students so that they can also join this interesting online course and that they can also become as enthusiastic as we all are about Shakespeare Lives.
If you have any questions about the Shakespeare Lives programme, our Arts Manager Luisa Michelsen (Luisa.Michelsen@
