    The OP mentioned that they are sitting GCSE. These are the tests 16 year olds sit in the UK. Shakespeare is difficult to read, even for a native, with its 16th century language. Some of his works are going to be covered by the 'English Literature' GCSE.

    A 15 year old native speaker, with bad grammar, would be looking for a literary critique rather than instruction in English as a foreign language. I guess they found this site from searching for 'English'.

    Yes I appreciate that, but it is possible that we can help, if she tries to write something and posts it here. Without something from her, there is very little we can do.
