Listen to the audio file and tick the correct answer.
A dispatch

a) Who told the press that Romeo loved Juliet? (Romeo. /Friar Laurence. / Mr and Mrs Capulet. / We don’t know.)
b) Who saw Romeo and Juliet kiss? (Nobody. / An anonymous witness. / Juliet’s cousin, Tybalt.)
c) Who said Romeo was a villain? (Juliet’s cousin, Tybalt. / Juliet’s nurse. / Juliet’s father.)

e) Who thinks it is good news that Juliet and Romeo love each other? (Romeo’s parents. / Juliet’s nurse. / Friar Laurence.)

Listen again. For each person, state whether or not you think they are the anonymous witness. Give one or two arguments to support your opinion.

Probably 👍 Probably not 👎
Mercutio (Romeo’s best friend)
Tybalt (Juliet’s cousin)
Lady Capulet
Juliet’s nurse

Imagine what would happen if Juliet’s family knew all about their love story. Associate the beginning of each sentence with its endings.
  • he would not have met Juliet.
  • he would try to kill Romeo.
  • she would faint.
  • they would have rejoiced to hear about Romeo and Juliet’s story.
  • she would leave with Romeo right away.
If Juliet’s father knew about Romeo and Juliet,
If Juliet could escape her nurse’s surveillance,
If the families had not started a feud a long time ago,
If Juliet’s nurse saw Romeo under Juliet’s balcony,
If Romeo had not been to the ball,

Repeat

Répète : Oh Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

Reporter: Sir, you are the paparazzi who took this photo. What (you / do) at the Capulets’ mansion?
Paparazzi: Well, I (cover) the ball for the Verona Mirror, and I was surprised to see Romeo. Later, I (take) a picture of Juliet’s parents when Romeo suddenly kissed Juliet’s hand. It was so surprising that I followed him. They had stars in their eyes when they (speak) to each other. A few seconds later, I adjusted my camera and they (kiss). It was soooo romantic!
