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'.
