On YouTube: Speaking the bright and beautiful English of Shakespeare, Ben Crystal from British Council English and Exams

A clip from this great talk on “Original Pronunciation” or how Shakespeare’s plays and language might have sounded at the time they were first written and produced. A link to the entire talk can be found below. — Douglas

On YouTube: Shakespeare’s accent from British Council English and Exams 

Actor and author Ben Crystal explores the accent, the theatrical conventions, and the world of Shakespeare, to reveal a bright and beautiful English.
