Cambridge Vocabulary for IELTS written by Pauline Cullen includes useful tips on how to approach IELTS exam tasks and covers tricky areas.
There is also a focus on correct spelling and pronunciation. If you are learning vocabulary from free materials and videos, then you are likely to be learning words that are not relevant to the real test.
Many free materials focus on words that are highly technical and unfair, and so are simply not suitable for IELTS. Read the vocabulary chapter of my free book to see why this is important. Although there is no separate vocabulary test in IELTS, vocabulary is a key element of each part of the test. A lack of vocabulary means you cannot follow the listening recordings and that you cannot quickly read the passages in the reading test. In both writing and speaking, the vocabulary you use is assessed by the examiner, who will be looking to see if you can use words accurately and precisely.
Vocabulary is extremely important in IELTS and so building your vocabulary will help you to improve your score in each part of the test.
In the classroom, it is often difficult for teachers to focus on vocabulary for very long. At band 5 or 6, there are many words in IELTS reading passages that students do not know, but students who do know these words can easily become bored if the teacher stops the class to explain.
Cambridge Vocabulary for IELTS helps self-study students and teachers in the classroom to focus longer on vocabulary by making the learning interesting and relevant to the test. After each 5 units, there is a test to help you see if you can remember the words you have learned from the previous units.
This step is very important because it will help you remember them. Note the 15 new words down in your notebook.
Look up the new words in a dictionary. You can do this online.
Beside each word note the meaning, an example sentence or two, collocations, synonyms, antonyms, and pronunciation. You can also draw pictures; whatever will help you remember the word.
Review the new words after one week, two weeks and then one month. Also, practice using the new words in a sentence. If you do this five days a week, after a month you will have nearly new words in your notebook.
After 6 months you will have at least new words. These are in boxes for easy reference. A comprehensive answer key is provided for all sections of the book including model answers for more open-ended writing and speaking tasks.
At the back of the book, you can further develop your vocabulary by studying the list of the most common collocations for the vocabulary presented in the units. The book is divided into 20 units.
Units cover vocabulary for topics that frequently appear in the exam, such as health and education. Units cover words for general functions, such as describing problems and solutions.
Units 10 and 20 provide revision exercises. Unit 10 revises the vocabulary and skills covered in Units , and Unit 20 revises the vocabulary and skills covered in Units All 20 units help you develop skills such as paraphrasing and working out the meaning of unfamiliar words from context.
Each unit is self-contained so that you can study the units in any order. You can choose the unit you want to study either by selecting the topic you want to study, or by selecting which exam paper you want to practise.
Only the units with practice on the Speaking and Listening papers contain audio. The contents pages at the beginning of the book provide an overview of what is in each unit so you can use this to choose which units you would like to study first. These pages also give you information on which units contain audio. You will probably find it helpful to begin each unit by reading the vocabulary items in part 1, then working through the exercises in preparation for the exam practice exercise at the end.
Try to do the exam exercises within the time limit to give yourself realistic exam practice. In order to learn a new word, it is usually necessary to revisit it several times. The revision units help you to do this. However, it is also a good idea to avoid writing your answers in the book so that you can do the exercises again at a later date.
