shakespeare german link



Ive been told that reading shakespeare type stuff can help english speakers learn german quicker,because germans speak how we used to speak,word order i mean

Hi there, that is a nice idea and true in some aspects. For example the formal and informal ways of addressing someone, that are crucial to the German language, were also commonly used in old English ("thou", "thee","you", "ye"). It certainly won't do any harm reading Shakespeare :wink:
