Clothes, fashion & consumerism

C1-C2 Selling and buying vocabulary crossword

Happy dosh

We’ve just finished the unit on consumerism, and then ooops! I start panicking. Does my group know all the words they need to know? Just in case, here’s one of those crosswords they seem to truely hate, along with some coins that insisted on saying hello (just to cheer them up a bit).

Many of the words that are in this crossword are on the wordcloud, although not all the words on the wordcloud are in the crossword. So, first check on the meaning of the words that I have included in the cloud and after, give the crossword a try.
