In this video English lesson, part of my Daily Dose of English series from 2010-2011, I look at Romeo and Juliet
Today, I am going to tell you the story of Romeo and Juliet in a somewhat less elegant and considerably shortened form to that which William Shakespeare originally wrote. Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet are the children of two families who dont get along together. Despite family differences, Romeo and Juliet fall in love when Romeo gatecrashes a party at her father’s house. It is love at first sight. Romeo goes to see Friar Lawrence who agrees to marry the two lovers in secret. The friar hopes that the marriage will end the long-standing dispute between the two families.
