Product Description
As students read through the novel DRACULA by Bram Stoker, they will notice that there is a difference in the way the language sounds and often looks. Many words and terms used within the novel are English or Old English terms and would have a different translation in the United States today (i.e. British English: Solicitor, American English: Lawyer). It is important to explain to students what these terms mean, or encourage them to use context clues to figure it out. Sometimes this is doable, other times it is just a matter of knowing. This activity will explain some of the language differences and include a translation chart. This is fun to explore and discuss with your students. Next, your students will be challenged to a writing task in which they will use British English in place of their American English.
