ESL Lesson Plan on Shakespeare

Did Shakespeare die on the same day he was born?

The exact day of Shakespeare’s birth is not known for sure. The Bard’s birthday is  typically cited as April 23rd (1564), the same day as his death (1616).  In his birthplace, people have been celebrating the Bard during this week of April for over 200 years! Today’s podcast is all about Shakespeare, the most famous writer of all time. This reading is from our Famous People lesson section.  The full lesson plan comes with warm-up questions, vocabulary review tasks, a reading, as well as comprehension and discussion questions.  Share this free podcast with your language learners as a preview to the lesson plan or for extra listening practice.
