“Starting Shakespeare takes the fear out of Shakespeare. This app brings the language and plays to life in a colourful and accessible way. Students will love experimenting with their own spells and getting to know some of the greatest stories and characters ever created, in a fun and interactive way.”

Gemma Porter

“Shakespeare isn’t just for high school students. We hope that Starting Shakespeare will help teachers and students discover the joy and magic of his plays in classrooms around Australia. I wish I had this when I was young!”
