Most copies of the plays of Shakespeare have footnotes to explain difficult words.

Old English
-I think the secret with it is not to be scared and just try and pronounce the words
-Try imaganing the words spoken in a Northern accent
-If its Shakespear you should deffinatley be able to get hold of a audio version this should help alot
