What types of fiction there are in English

Fantasy and fantasy stories form a huge part of English-language literature. Here you will find books in English to suit your individual language level. In all English language programmes, reading literature in the original language is a compulsory method.

In this sense, fantasy and science fiction, saturated with spoken language, dialogues and at the same time enriched with social and scientific vocabulary, can significantly expand the base of the English language both semantically and grammatically.

If you want content to your liking, you should clearly distinguish the difference between fantasy and sci-fi and even more so science fiction.

Fantasy is modern fairy tales with magic, magical characters, and modern variations of myths and legends. It is a pure figment of the writer's imagination.

The genre imitates ancient sagas, tales, fairy tales. Even historical fantasy does not pretend to be realistic. These magical worlds can include elements of different historical eras, which can create a sense of surrealism. The unfolding of events always involves mechanics not available in the real world. There are many screen works here.

It is better to start with the classics to get acquainted with fantasy. The direct way is to plunge into the beautiful universe of Middle-earth, in which the Middle Ages reign, other races neighbour humans and magic is used everywhere. In the online shop Dinternal Education you can buy Tolkien's bestsellers, which are considered a monumental foundation and an example of fantasy. Reading such editions in the original language significantly helps in learning English.

Fantasy stories are usually based on real facts and discoveries. The principles of functioning of the universe and worlds in general inherit physical laws. These are usually future worlds that do not appear out of nowhere, so a writer working in the genre of hard science fiction must logically and coherently explain to the reader the reasons why his amazing universe came into being.

Both sci-fi and fantasy have their own unusual creatures.

  • in fantasy are elves, dwarves, representatives of other worlds and the writer's imagination.
  • In science fiction, this role is played by aliens, time travelers, artificial intelligence or robots.
