I dont understand. Why people know macbeth secret ?
Did the three witches tell them or the ghost tell them ?

Hi LadyRainforestFlamingo,
This is a very good question.
Shakespeare's play is much longer and more complicated than the video you can watch on our website. There are more characters and other things happen (Macbeth kills some more people).
Macbeth and Lady Macbeth start to act strangely after they kill Duncan and Banquo. Some of the other characters begin to realise what happened.
Your ideas are very good - perhaps the witches tell them, or the ghosts of Duncan or Banquo tell them.
Do you like the story?

In match game, I see a sentence : lady macbeth is very happy because she want to be a queen. I dont understand . I think the sentence should be : lady macbeth is very happy because she can be a queen. Is it right ?

Hi LadyRainforestFlamingo,
The correct sentence is "Lady Macbeth is very happy because she wants to be the queen".
Macbeth writes a letter to Lady Macbeth. He tells her the witches say he will be the new king of Scotland. She is happy because she wants to be the queen of Scotland.
At this point we don't say "she can be the queen" because we are not sure if Macbeth will kill Duncan and if he will become the king of Scotland.
I hope that helps.

Thank you so much, MissInternetEarth .I understand now.

I like this play because it is interesting. I wanna be a teacher in the future.

I liked the play; I liked because I think that is "fun" read or listenning dramatic or tragic historys.
When I grow up will be a Doctor.
