Tips for vocabulary topic lists

  • Try to use them in your IELTS writing and speaking.

  • Remember that idioms should only be used in the IELTS Speaking test and General Training Writing task 1 – informal letters.

  • Add more words, phrases and idioms to the list when you find them in various sources.

  • Use the topic lists as a foundation for your own vocabulary records.
