This year's 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare is not just an opportunity to commemorate one of the greatest playwrights of all time.Shakespeare's legacy is without parallel: His works translated into over 100 languages and studied by half the world's schoolchildren.Shakespeare played a critical role in shaping modern English and helping to make it the world's language. Shakespeare's influence is felt far beyond our language.Perhaps one of the most exciting legacies of Shakespeare is his capacity to educate. As we see from the outreach work of the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare's Globe and the impact of pioneering British charities like the Shakespeare Schools Festival, studying and performing Shakespeare can help improve literacy, confidence and wider educational attainment.
