There are many different Genres, although before I thought that there were only two genres, fiction, and non-fiction. But I was totally wrong about that! There are many other genres than just two! I have an essay on genres, and here it is: http://matthewshomeschoolingjourney.weebly.com/english-7/genre
At the beginning, I was taught about the five parts of fiction, the plot, setting, character development, theme, and style. The plot includes the exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and the resolution. All these were explained in great detail to me by my teacher!
There are many forms of literature, and to be exact, there are five. There are Novels, Poems, short stories, dramas, and novellas.
I also learned about many vocabulary words that are very useful to know and of which are mentioned in the CELP exam.
I enjoyed learning about genres, the five parts of fiction, forms of literature, and vocabulary words. Below I listed some essays of which include information on some things that I talked about this essay.
