Language level

Upper intermediate: B2


To my mind, people are keen on watching horror moves because they like thrilling  with horror. As for me, I prefer comedies or action to horror as it's very merry. Besides, you have opportunity to relax watching different comedies.
It seems to me, psychological thrillers make us to think, to discuss, to draw conclusion. But horror films have only sinister zombie and so on.

I'm so scary of zombies, ghost and monster. . . But now i will try to watch horror films. . . I realllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyy likkkkkeeee this site.... :d

I don't like these movies... but a lot people like becouse is funny for them.  people like to feel  fear and cry. is it stupid? or is it funny? Make your own conclusions.
I like drama, it´s the best!!

This activity is excellent.  Thank you very much for it.

Dear teacher, I have a problem: the spelling  checker that apeared every time I post a comment don't work any more. I was happy the first time I saw it because it helps you to improve your writing, but  I don't know why I can't see it now. Can you help me?   Thanks you very much in advance.

Dear Inmaculate,
We had to turn off the spellchecker because of some technical problems. We will be turning it back on soon, though.
