This is a collection of worksheets I compiled for initially understanding the complexity of Shakespeare’s language. It includes a model glossary, which students can fill with words they have translated into modern English. It also contains several passages from various of Shakespeare&'s plays, with space to translate whole passages into modern English. There are additional questions for discussion about thematic material in the passages used. It would suit a variety of levels, though some students will have better understanding than others of this topic.
