C1/C2 Vocabulary for types of books

Once upon a time this activity was a flipping card quiz, but it was far too long and so I’ve broken it up into smaller chunks of words. In this new version, you’ll only find types of books according to what the plot is about or the intentions behind it. Just look at each box, try to guess the word, and after put the mouse over the box to see if you were right. Another way to use this activity, is to read the descriptions and after see how many of them you can remember.

Here’s a quiz
