  1. George

    a) 1. Merchant of Venice A1S3 Transcript.
    a) 2. List of Characters
    a) 3. A3S1 Transcript

  2. Charlie

    1) a) List of characters
    b) A2S7
    c) A3S3

    2) I found the webpage extremely user friendly. It is set out in a simplistic way, so it is easy to use. I found the list of characters extremely useful as it gave a real insight into a characters POV which helped me understand feelings towards other characters and why they have them.

  3. Michael

    a) List of Characters
    b) Helpful translations and shows original
    c) You can custom select what you require
