Spotlight Vocabulary, February 2022

Feb 27, 2022 | IELTS Test

It’s almost March — but before we get there, check out our February edition of Spotlight Vocabulary! 

This series is where we curate and point you in the direction of articles containing high-level vocabulary and ideas you can use on test day.

Check out our LinkedIn and Twitter accounts to see all the previous articles we have curated. 

How To Use These Articles

Start by reading them. If you have more time then note the words either on paper or on an app — ideally by writing down the whole sentence so you have the context the vocabulary was used in.

Use the words you learn as often as possible so that they become a part of your active vocabulary that you can readily recall on test day.

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