Check The Difficult Vocabularies

Posted: June 25, 2011 in Reading

You may not understand every word in the reading passages. Even native English-speaking people might have difficulty fully understanding all the vocabulary presented in an IELTS test. You are not allowed to use a dictionary in the examination room.

The best approach is to guess the meaning of the word from the context, that is, from the words that surround it. However, this is not always an easy task. If you still have no idea what the word means, ask yourself if it contributes a positive (+) or negative (-) meaning to the sentence. This is usually enough to assist you to work out the meaning or intention of the writer.
