How can I record new vocabulary?

How can I make sure to use it in my Task 2 essay?

You should start a new vocabulary notebook.

  • Find material that you are interested in: from newspapers, magazine articles, or novels. It must be interesting to engage your mind.
  • Write down 2-3 words from the article or chapter in your notebook.
  • When you write it down, put it in context. You can copy the sentence from the dictionary, but also write your own sentence with the new word.

Practice using it.

  • 4 weeks before the exam, start sitting down 2-3 times a week and write both IELTS essays.
  • Don’t worry about time.
