B2 Vocabulary on Crime and Punishment


Ooh! Not such a nice topic to speak about. Did you know that the English language has a wide variety of words for all types of different crimes. And you’d say something like ‘what’s so new about that?’ Yep, but as a matter of fact, English even has words relating to different types of ‘stealing’ For instance if it’s in a shop where somebody is nicking some of the goods, the word here would be ‘shoplifting’. If it’s a bank where the crime takes place, it would be ‘robbery’ and so on.

Here’s a vocabulary activity for this topic. Please, remember that feedback makes me SO happy 😉
