Julius Caesar

 Today, Miriam started "Julius Caesar" by Shakespeare.  We try to get the Oxford School editions and listen to the play on CD.

Heute hat Miriam mit "Julius Caesar" von Shakespeare angefangen.  Wir lesen das Stück und hören es auch als Audiobuch.  



In a homeschool, it is hard to listen to something all on your own.  Veronika got intrigued by what she heard on the CD when Miriam was listening to "Julius Caesar" and a few minutes later, I found her engrossed in the book herself.

Wenn man zu Hause Schule macht, kann man nicht so gut ganz alleine etwas hören, irgendeiner ist immer dabei und hört zu.  Veronika fand das, was Miriam da von Shakespeare hörte, so interessant, daß ich sie später ganz vertieft in "Julius Caesar" fand.  



And later this afternoon, there was a beautiful rainbow.
Und später gab es einen wunderschönen Regenbogen.

  1. Genau so ist es uns auch oft gegangen. Obwohl Sandro drei Jahre jünger ist als John, hat er sehr viel beim Mithören gelernt, was mir in dem Moment gar nicht aufgefallen war, denn oft schien er in eigenes Spiel vertieft... ;)

    1. Kinder haben gute Ohren! Flora ist da auch Meisterin :). Da fragt man sich dann aber auch, was sie alles an dummen Dingen mitbekommen, die man so gedankenlos daherredet.

  2. Love the rainbow!

    We also really enjoyed reading Julius Caesar, and then after reading it we really enjoyed watching the 1953 movie with Marlon Brando, John Gielgud, James Mason, Greer Garson, Deborah Kerr, Louis Calhern and Edmund O'Brian. There's probably another great actor I'm forgetting . . I think we either got it from the library . . or just watched it on youtube . .

    1. Thanks, Dorina. Yes, we have the movie here as well (from the college library, I don't think the whole movie is on YouTube). I watched it with Jonathan, but not with Charlotte. I would like Charlotte to read the book as well and then have them both (Miriam and Charlotte) watch the movie.

  3. Wonderful! Trying to get my son to go to a Julius Caesar play this month, but he's got low interest. Maybe I'll show him the movie to stimulate interest.

    1. Yes, the movie is good (the one Dorina mentioned). Sometimes a movie like that might lead to the interest in the book. Good luck, Alexandra! Let me know if he went along to the play.
