Spotlight IELTS Vocabulary April 2019

Apr 29, 2019 | IELTS Test, IELTS Vocabulary

Welcome to the second edition of Spotlight IELTS Vocabulary.

In this series, we curate content which contains high-level vocabulary and ideas that you can use in the IELTS test.

The following articles were first tweeted on our Twitter account in April 2019. We have separated them into different topics to help you focus your attention on areas you need to improve the most.

How To Use These Articles

We recommend that you read through each article and capture words which are new for you.

Try to learn each word in context – don’t just copy the word, copy the whole sentence!

Don’t translate the word into your own language – use an English-English dictionary. This will help you to think and speak in English.

Finally, find as many opportunities as you can to use the new words. This could be by using them in a diary or booking a lesson with a qualified native speaker.


Technology is always a favourite topic for IELTS test writers. Here are a couple of vocabulary and idea rich articles that can help you to prepare.

Social Media

A good topic to study whether you are taking the test or not!

Work and Employment

The robots have arrived and are taking our jobs. What is the future or work?

That’s all for this edition. Keep your eyes on our blog for the next issue
