The First Folio - level 1

The First Folio - level 1

27-02-2015 15:00

The First Folio is a book. There are 36 plays in the book. The plays are by William Shakespeare.

There are 230 copies of this book in the world. This makes every copy special. Every copy is very important.

One copy is in France. People do not know about it. It sits in a library for years. One day, however, a man finds it. Now people know that the book is special. They take good care of it.

The book stays in France for a year. Then, people move it to the United Kingdom.

Difficult words: play (a story which you can watch in a theatre), copy (one of many books which are the same), to take good care of something (to do things which keep something good).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
