Spotlight IELTS Vocabulary, November 2019

Nov 29, 2019 | IELTS Test, IELTS Vocabulary

Welcome to the ninth edition of Spotlight Vocabulary.

This series is dedicated to helping you learn vocabulary that will enrich your life and help you pass tests like IELTS.

When you find a new word, write down the whole sentence it appears in. Learning a word in context will help you to both remember it and use it accurately. 

All the articles you see here were first curated and published on our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts.

How To Use These Articles

Just click on the links, and start reading!

Capture the sentences in which new words appear and record them in an app, such as Anki. 

Next, use the words you learn as often as you can.  One way to do this is by keeping a diary. Using the words regularly will help to make them a part of your active speech. 

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