B2 Flipping cards quiz with styles of music

I posted this quiz a couple of years ago, but very frequently, one notices that the activity flops and needs some type of upgrading. That’s just what happened the other day when I used it as a lead-in to talk about entertainment and going out. I could see my little group of students giggling and so I thought “Oh of course Serena! This activity is far too easy for these guys.” And then I started to feel like a real silly billy.

I’ve left the other post just as it is and I’ve made this one a little (just a little) more challenging. I’m also uploading a wordcloud I made on; which is amazing!

You can download the wordcloud if you feel like it although I stuck my logo on it, as a reminder to come back some day to my blog.

What type of music is this?            


rock 'n' roll



heavy metal
