BBC Learning English: The English We Speak – At the movies: ‘Whodunnit’ is short for ‘who has done it’. The point of these films is for the audience to try to guess who committed a serious crime – usually murder. ‘Romcom’ is a word which takes the first two halves of the words ‘romantic’ and ‘comedy’. ‘Sci-fi is a word which takes the first two halves of the words ‘science’ and ‘fiction.’

Neil and Feifei discuss movie genres. Do you like romantic stories which are funny? What about a detective story in which you can try to be Sherlock Holmes? And don’t forget the futuristic movies – the ones with sophisticated robots and space travel. Grab the popcorn and listen to the programme.
