-Prince Escalus, the ruler of Verona, attempts to prevent any further conflicts between the families by decreeing death for any individual who disturbs the peace in the future.

-It is found out that Romeo is in love with Rosaline.

-they get an invitation to a ball where Romeo’s cousin wants to show that they are more beautiful girls than her.

At the ball:

-Romeo goes with his cousin to the ball

-Romeo is spotted by the other family, one of them wants to get rid of him but the other tells him not to, so as not to disturb the ball and to keep peace.

-Romeo sees Juliet and then they fall in love, although they do not yet know who each other are as everyone at the ball are wearing masks.

-Romeo waits outside Juliet’s window for her and they make long speeches about each other in private.

-They decide they want to marry each other (even though they have not yet spoken a hundred words to each other yet.)


-Friar Lawrence gives a speech about how herbs can do great good but can also do bad. He compares it to humans.

-Romeo walks in and asks the friar if he can help him and Juliet to be married.

-Tybalt enters with another of his men, he asks whether ‘his man’ (Romeo) is anywhere, he begins to insult Mercutio until Romeo enters.

-Tybalt describes him as an enemy, but Romeo says that he must love Tybalt as                 we and Romeo know (all of the other characters don’t) he is secretly married to Juliet so he must love Tybalt as a cousin.

-Romeo’s friends do not like this as they think Romeo should treat Tybalt badly and not love him as they are not supposed to like the other family.

This is Your Online Domain

 Icon for Student Blogs at Edutronic.Net

Hello and welcome to your personal online journal.

This platform has been created to enhance and enrich your learning at the London Nautical School. Its purpose is to provide you with an audience for your work (or work-in-progress) and you have the choice (by altering the ‘visibility’ of your posts) of whether your work on here is visible to the world, or only to your teacher.

Anything you post here in the public domain represents you and thus it’s important that you take care with that decision, but don’t be afraid to publish your work – as the feedback you may get from people at home, your peers and people from around the internet is only likely to enhance it.

Remember you can always access your class blog and all manner of resources through the main website – and by all means check out the sites of your peers to see what they’re getting up to as well.

If you have any questions for me, an excellent way to get an answer is to create a new private post on this journal. I am notified of any new posts and will reply swiftly to any queries.

Make the most of, and enjoy this new freedom in your English learning.
