BRZEE Academy explains why is Vocabulary important for IELTS

The vocabulary is the most important component in IELTS test. Be it speaking, writing, listening or reading, a rich word-power can be of paramount importance in IELTS. You must be thinking it is a daunting task. But Ielts coaching in DLF, Gurugram at BRZEE Academy gives explanation through this page which will assist you in your endeavor to have a rich and effective word power.

Needless to say, speaking and writing modules require impressive word power so that you can win the heart of the examiner by your eloquent speech and writing skills. Having said that, the reading and listening components are equally a piece of cake if you have a list of synonyms ingrained in your gray matter.

The best ielts coaching Center in Udyog Vihar at BRZEE Academy teaches that vocabulary cannot be learnt by merely cramming a long list of words or by going through a dictionary.  This is because you have to learn the usage of the word in a sentence and not merely do rote learning of difficult words. Again, the context in which a word is to be used should be correct. It’s better to write a simple word than to write a difficult word in the wrong context.

The top ielts coaching Center in Palam Vihar as BRZEE Academy shows the best way to learn new words is to learn them in a given context and write several sentences using them and getting the same checked from an expert.

Here are five tips to enrich your word power:

  1. Read from an interesting book, magazine or newspaper article which has slightly challenging word power. Apart from this, watch TV program or listen to a radio program which is gripping so that you look forward to every program. Try to see Hollywood movies with sub-titles. This will not only help you to widen your vocabulary list. But also encourage you to implement these small tips on a daily basis.
  2. Make a list of the challenging words in a notebook. Randomly pick up 15 words and try to guess the meaning of these words in the given context.
  3. The next step is to look up the meanings of the new words in a dictionary. Try to see how close your guess was to the actual meaning of the word.
  4. Apart from the correct meaning of the word, write two example sentences with correct collocations so that you are sure how to use that word in your IELTS speaking or writing module. Write synonyms and antonyms of those words as well and learn the correct pronunciation from an online site.
  5. Review the words after a week, then once in two weeks and then once a in a month. And last but not the least, don’t forget to use the new words in a sentence.

Even if you do this exercise 5 days in a week, just imagine in a month’s time you will have 100 new words in your notebook. In a span of six months you will have 500 new words. This is BRZEE Academy’s teaching methodology as the Best-Spoken English Institute in Gurgaon.

It has been generally observed that the human mind is able to register about 15 words in a foreign language in a day. So, don’t try to memorize more than 15 words. You will not be able to retain them properly and will tend to make errors instead.  This is a sure shot method which has worked for most of my students at BRZEE Academy which is Best Personality development Institute in Gurgaon.
