Spotlight IELTS Vocabulary June 2019

Jun 25, 2019 | IELTS, IELTS Test, IELTS Vocabulary

Welcome to the fourth edition of Spotlight IELTS Vocabulary.

This month we throw another spotlight on articles worthy of your attention.

Each article contains vocabulary and ideas which will help you to score highly in IELTS Speaking and Writing.

We first curated each article on our Twitter account. Follow us if you would like to see more.

How To Use These Articles

Choose a topic that interests you or a topic for which you need a stronger vocabulary.

Write down new words that you come across – not just the word but the whole sentence. Learning a word in context will help you to use it accurately later.

Don’t translate the word into your native language – write down an English definition. Learning the English definition for new vocabulary will help you to think as well as speak in English.

Find every opportunity you can to use your new vocabulary. Use it in a diary, buy a friend a meal on condition they speak English, find as many opportunities as you can.

For the ultimate practice, book a lesson with one of our teachers or even a Writing Correction.
