In Active English 2012-13, we demonstrated how learning English through drama can be fun and enjoyable. We selected The Adventures of  Beowulf and Oliver Twist to work on.

Beawolf

The Adventures of Beowulf

An exciting adventure story of how Beowulf, a famous Danish hero, kills evil monsters like Grendel and his mother and an evil dragon. It is a story of good versus evil retold in modern English from the well-known Anglo-Saxon poem.




Oliver Twisttwist

The story is written by Charles Dickens. It is about how an orphan goes through many hardships and adentures until he discovers his family and lives happily ever after. This new adaptation, using modern English, will focus on the main plot of Oliver Twist: how he runs away from Mr Beedle in the work house to his entrapment by Fagin and his gang of boy thieves, to his discovery of his long lost, rich relatives.
