If you reach an IELTS band 7 and above in speaking and writing, it's important accurately use academic vocabulary. Doing so will also help you to understand academic texts (helpful for the reading test) and also part 4 of the listening test, which contains an academic topic.
In the previous Academic Vocabulary class we studied academic vocabulary in context to help us work out the meaning. Now we will continue to develop these skills by first identifying word meaning, then the word form before finally using the words in different sentences.
|1.||Most TVs between 80 and 400 watts of electricity per day.|
|2.||If you the legal amount of alcohol and the police catch you driving, you may lose your license.|
|3.||Indonesia has staggering diversity with over 300 separate groups.|
|4.||What traditional are produced in your region?|
|5.||There are many types of traditional food found in Asia.|
|6.||My sister is very argumentative. Whenever I say something she has a opinion and so we have arguments about everything from where to eat to what to get our parents at Christmas.|
|7.||Young people are much less likely to want to do ‘traditional’ or ‘old fashioned’ such as farming or fishing.|
|8.||The president’s friends and business colleagues the government, resulting in many people believing the government is corrupt.|
How did you do? Remember to apply the same thought to new words you find - guess the meaning before you check with a dictionary, then identify the part of speech (verb/adjective/noun). Finally make sure to use new words as often as possible to ensure that you remember them.
