a) You will be given a slip of paper with a Shakespearean phrase or the English equivalent. Read it carefully and practice it quietly. Then go around in your classroom speaking your phrase and try to find your modern or Shakespearean counterpart. When you have found your match, fill your words into the table on the transparency lying on the OHP.
b) Together with your partner try to construct a setting where you could use five or six of the Shakespearean phrases and make a dialogue. You can add some modern phrases.
