Genres of movies in Spanish

Talking about books or movies is a very popular conversation topic, so it makes sense that you would have to know the movie genre words in Spanish. When talking about movies or books in Spanish, you may want to ask another person, “Have you seen _____?” (“¿has visto ____?”) or, “Have you read ___?” (“Has leído ____?”)Another useful phrase is, “What is it about?” (De que se trata?). Remember these phrases and some of the following vocabulary and you will have a great conversation piece at hand when speaking to native Spanish speakers. Ready to learn? – And action!

Just about everybody watches and enjoys movies, which means that it makes a great conversation topic when you are talking to people that you have just met or even with old friends. Practicing what you learn regularly is important for your progress, so ensure that you are working with a partner on mini-conversations or even have an imaginary conversation by yourself (you might look a little crazy, but it works).
