To help you prepare for examinations like IELTS or OET, we’ve compiled a list of articles that contain high-level concepts and terminology.

How to Use These Articles

Just read them!

Consider using an app like Anki to keep track of the terms you learn and don’t feel rushed!

If you have time, note the entire sentence in which a new word appears.  When you learn new vocabulary in context, you’ll retain it more easily and be able to apply it correctly, which is especially important when learning collocations. 

Finally, don’t forget to use the terms you’ve learned. Once they are in your active memory, you can easily recall them. Spotlight Vocabulary, _____
