Blogging about Romeo and Juliet.
Romeo and Juliet families were enemies, but in a feast Romeo fell in love with Juliet.
He didn’t know that she was playing theater.
In this time the father chose a man for the daughter, they could not select a man themself.
In Romeo and Juliet´s case women’s right was insignificant. Women did not have the right to play theater and select a love to marry with.
Juliet was forced to marry a man who her father had selected.
The result was that Juliet and Romeo had to keep their love secret.
One might wonder why a women`s voice did not matter.
The people at that time probably did not think that love is important.
Women were not allowed to play theater, and you wonder why men thought so and why women were not able?!
Behind men`s laws about women there were no reasonable reasoning.
In the movie you can see already that Romeo and Juliet think that it is wrong that Juliet is forced to marry another man she doesn´t love.
After I`ve seen the movie I think that the man Juliet is forced to marry does not seem to understand anything about love.
The strange thing is that the mother or they other people around Romeo and Juliet have an opinion about that men decide everything around the women, everyone accepts everything.
Romeo and Juliet were brave who stood up for their love.
Who knows what had happened if people had been told about their meeting?!
The movie is a good example of how love wins and conquers all.
At the end of the movie enough people started to understand that you can not force someone to marry. People saw real love.
It was probably terrible for women when they were ruled by the men in society. Society was forced to find a change to make them equal.
When Juliet was revealed in the theater enough people saw a women was as good at theater like a man.
This week we have talked about Shakespeare and his life. We saw a movie called Shakespeare in love. It was around that time when he wrote one of most famous plays Romeo and Juliet.
It was very interesting to watch how they lived and what they did to have fun. Because there were no cinemas at that the time so they only had plays.
There was a character who I really admired in the movie.
Her name was Viola, she loved poetry and she wanted to become a poet but she weren’t allowed because she was a women and at the time women were not allowed to be poets.
Men believed that women their place belonged in the kitchen or in their
homes. But despite that she took a risk and dressed up as man because that
was the only way for her to be in a play.
Today , in some countries there are still young girls who has the same problem as Viola. Some parents might not even send their daughters to school. Instead they have to learn how to be the perfect housewives.
And when the parents think that it is time for them to be married, they sell them to usually much older men.
They are often around the age of 10 maybe younger. She was a daughter of wealthy merchant so it was harder for her to pursue her dream.
It was very hard for women at the time because men thought so lowly of women. Women had no rights.
They couldn’t decide on their own instead a father or brother did it.
Viola fell in love with Shakespeare but she knew that it wouldn’t last because she couldn’t marry him.
Meanwhile her father sold her to a rich lord. She had to obey her father otherwise he would disown or even kill her.
She had to leave everything she loved behind. She had to leave her dream and her love for Shakespeare.
We saw in the movie that when the lord who Viola’s father sold her to when he heard a rumor that someone else was with Viola , instantly he found who he was and he got him killed.
That has never changed, still there are people killing each other for the sake of honour.
If a woman or a girl did a mistake that can ruin their family’s honour according to the parents then the male members have the right to kill their daughter. In some cases they would also kill the boy.
This honour violence culture has been around for hundreds of years. Let’s just say that if Viola would run away from her husband then she would be thrown into prison or maybe killed.
Romeo sees Juliet. She is beautiful.
She is dancing. Juliet kisses Romeo. Romeo And Juliet.
Juliet is saying “ Oh my.”
Romeo is saying” Just say you Love me. And I`ll Never be Romeo again”
Romeo is telling the priest “ We won´t.. Nothing bad can happen. If we’re to be Married, Then i would die a happy man”.
Because Juliet has married with Romeo.
The priest says “here comes Juliet. How lovely she looks”
Romeo is saying” He`s alive and Mercutio`s Dead”
Romeo kills Tybalt! Because Tybalt killed Mercutio.
Benvolio is saying” If They catch you, You`ll be executed”Go!
Romeo goes to Juliet! He killed Tybalt! He can not stay Verona
Romeo says”Farewell! I will send my love to you whenever” I can.
Of course we will!
Juliet says” Will we ever meet again?
The priest is saying” You will be taken to the Capulet vault and laid to rest there. In the meantime. I`ll write to Romeo and tell him what is happening.
We will both be in the vault when you wake up, And he will take you away to Mantua. Are you sure you want to go through with this”
Juliet is saying” Give it to me”
The priest is saying” Be strong. I`ll send a friar to Mantua with a letter for Romeo”
Juliet is saying ”Love will give me strength! Farewell, Father”.
Juliet is afraid of Tybalt`s Ghost.
Juliet is scared of the three skeletons!
Juliet is saying” I drink this for you!
The priest is saying” Is the bride ready to go to church”
Lord Capulet is saying“ Ready to go! But never to return.Oh Paris! your bride has died on the night before your wedding day”
Romeo hears, Juliet died!
He is drinking poison and saying “ It works quickly! Thus with a kiss I die! “
They are dead! The families are sad.
They are friends!

I love English because it’s important for example traveling abroad, talking with tourists, watch movies, series and episodes. I can watch food, bakery and restaurant programs.
I can listen to music with English lyrics and watch music videos on Youtube so it’s a good way.
I read a book 5 times so I more understand the story in the book and the plot of the book. Because I think so exciting also with many English texts and it’s exciting to learn in other ways.
I watch series named F.r.i.e.n.d.s, How I met your mother, Sex and the city and Riverdale. Because it’s so very exciting to follow what’s happening during a long time. I am feeling calm when I watch.
I watch movies as The godfather, 47 meters down, Eega and Born to be wild.
In these movies everything happens at once. Certain films continue.
I learn Geography for example the USA states, all the world countries, capitals, flags, big seas, lakes, rivers and mountains.
Because that I think it’s so interesting where cities are located and tourist attractions.
I like basketball and I am playing in the team. I am jogging three days a week on my own and listen to heavy metal and spotify playlists.
I play floorball once a week in Nacka I have been playing for two years.
I love table tennis very much and I am smashing carefully with the ball another side of the table and I like to contest with this.
Boxing is a martial art and I like this sport so we do warm-up and we do punching. I box in Hammarby boxing.// Gustav

How I learned English fast.
I never learned English in the school, I learned by myself by using
different methods. What increased the speed of my learning was the
When I was a child I really liked to listen to English songs. I did never
know what the songs said so I translated the words to Swedish. When I
heard the lyric song I remembered the words.
When I understood the language I watched movies and put the
translation text in English, so I could see how to spell the words right.
The good thing here is that in Sweden usually the television programs
are in the original language and not dubbed Swedish. That helps me to
hear how to pronounce.
When I went back to school to learn the basic I used google a lot. I
googled grammar exercises so I could practice more of what we learn in
school. A good way to learn faster is by communicate. Meet awesome
people so you can practice your English skills. If you forget a word a
good tips is download dictionary.
I would recommend also to read English books. A lot of books. If you
prefer to listen it is really good to listen to a audio book while you maybe
are in the subway or walking on your way home.
Another fun way to learn is by playing. I use a website that called
You can find there many fun and easy English games.
To learn a new language is not easy but if you have fun you will not get
What I want repeat is that the best tips I will give you if you want
to learn fast is to vary, good luck // Keyla
