There are no peasants in Britain. People who are working on a farm are called farm workers. The farmer pays workers every week. There are not many workers on a farm. The farmers have many machines. The machines do most of the work. A farm with four workers is a big farm, and a farm with one worker is a small farm.
In Britain people do not grow rice. The summer is not hot enough. The most important grain crop in Britain is wheat(小麦). Wheat and other crops grow best in the east of Britain. In the west, there is a lot of rain. There grass grows very well. So, in the west of Britain, most farms are animal farms. They are not crop farms. The British winter is warm and the grass grows all the year round. The animals live out in the fields and on the highlands all the year round. The British people eat lots of meat and drink lots of milk. Cattle give milk and meat, and sheep give meat. Cattle and sheep farms are in the west. Pigs are on farms here and there.

Of all the famous English writers, probably the best known is William Shakespeare.He was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564 on April the 23rd. His father was an important man in town so Shakespeare had a good upbringing（抚养，教养）. Shakespeare probably went to school but not university. He got married when he was 18 to Anne Hathaway and the couple had 3 children. Shakespeare wrote 38 plays and 154 poems. He began working in his home town of Stratford but by 1592 was writing in London. He became rich enough to buy a house in the capital and one in Stratford.
He wrote sad stories called tragedies, like Romeo and Juliet, funny stories or comedies, romantic stories and stories about historical figures such as Julius Caesar.
Shakespeare died on his birthday in 1616, almost 400 years ago. But why is his work still popular today?
His work looked at common human themes, such as betrayal, murder, lust, power, ambition and love. These themes are as much a part of human nature today as they were all those years ago and are the themes we see in modern soap operas and Hollywood films. Even though his theatre, The Globe, burned down in 1613 it was rebuilt in London in 1997 and you can still see his plays performed there today.
