IELTS Vocabulary: Word Lists, Pronunciation, and Exercises

Rate this post

IELTS Vocabulary is the major component of the IELTS examination. Vocabulary accounts for 25% of your IELTS writing and speaking marks, and it also plays an important part in listening and reading. If you want to pass IELTS, you must improve your English vocabulary.

How can one Improve IELTS Vocabulary?

By reading and listening, you can constantly expand your passive vocabulary word lists. Then, by actively employing these terms when speaking or writing, you can incorporate them into your active vocabulary. To progress faster, try to record new words in a phrasebook while reading, listening, or viewing English material. If you have time, include the context as well. When you finish an essay, go through it again and seek ways to incorporate the terms from your list.

Similarly, when speaking, attempt to incorporate your new vocabulary into your talks; but, don’t force it or it will sound strange! Idioms can be extracted from films and English podcasts, but I prefer audio because there are no visual cues, making listening a little more difficult. Active reading is an excellent habit to cultivate and a necessary exam preparation ability. Active reading is when you circle, underline and mark the content you’re reading to help you understand it better. If you want to speed up your learning, look into several vocabulary acquisition lessons.

Here is a list of vocabulary words for the IELTS exam that applicants can use as part of their preparation.

Common Idioms for IELTS Speaking

Many people find the IELTS speaking section difficult. However, this is the segment where applicants can demonstrate their language fluency, pronunciation, and knowledge. Furthermore, idioms help us explain our ideas more clearly and make them sound more natural. However, candidates must not employ idioms without comprehending their meaning, as this will result in a grade reduction. As a result, it is recommended that applicants utilize it in tasks only when they are certain of its meaning and context.

We’ve collected a list of IELTS idioms that can be used in the speaking exam. Remember that when employed correctly, they will result in a high band score.

  1. Hi Admin,

    I’d like to express my appreciation and gratitude to you for your efforts to assist us. I will take the IELTS exam on September 19. I came across your blog while researching IELTS speaking suggestions. It’s well-written and well-structured. But I’d appreciate some assistance with the speaking segment because I always rush through whatever topics are assigned to me and finish in 1-2 minutes. It would be quite helpful if you could give me some pointers on how to increase my speaking time.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Shyam Khanal
