New research from digital technology company Adobe has revealed that 77% of those 11-18 year olds who struggle to understand William Shakespeare’s plays say it is because of the challenging language, with 29% saying that modern day interpretations of the plays would help with their understanding of Shakespeare. Following news in August of a decline in the number of young people studying English at A-Level, Adobe surveyed 2,000 UK school- and college-age people to understand this further and found that almost one fifth (19%) would welcome digital technology being used to help them visualise Shakespeare better in the classroom.
