It is intended to be used in conjunction with resource packs on the other four acts of the play, and other EAL Nexus resources on Romeo and Juliet.

The aim of the pack is to enable beginner EAL learners to understand the plot of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, to become familiar with the main characters and their situation and to start to predict what might happen later in the play. There is a scene by scene summary in accessible English, accompanied by flashcards and DARTs activities. Answers to the DARTs activities are also provided so learners can correct their own work where appropriate. This is a highly visual resource with Manga style illustrations to appeal to young people.
