Take a look at the list of Shakespeare’s insults and compliments. Note that each group of words is divided into three columns.
Choose one word from each column to make a three-word insult or compliment that you will say to the people you meet. Your teacher will organize you into two circles for this exercise.

- “You rank, puking codpiece!”
- “You’re a paunchy, artless lout!”
