IELTS: Vocabulary - Topic Specific Vocabulary and Collocations
Prepare for IELTS Online here: https://www.ieltspodcast.com/online-ielts-course/ IELTS Essay Correction: https://ieltspodcast.com/essay-correction-service/ IELTS: Vocabulary - Topic Specific Vocabulary and Collocations http://goo.gl/UoyT8I In this episode, I walk you through some tips on your vocabulary choices for IELTS A high scoring IELTS essay requires the writer to cover all tasks and address all aspects of the question, provide coherent arguments with topic sentences, and use complex and simple sentence variation. Also, the writer must incorporate topic specific vocabulary and collocations. Collocations are words that are commonly used together in a sentence. Common formats of frequently used collocations include: “adverb + adjective,” “adjective+noun,” “noun+noun,” “noun+verb,” and, “verb+noun.” Remember in your writing that correct grammar is extremely important. This video provides you with a list of collocations and topic specific vocabulary. An easy way to incorporate these into already created sentences is to substitute simple words for more advanced ones and simple phrases for collocations. Using topic specific vocabulary and collocations will greatly improve your writing for the IELTS exam as a whole.

2 fun new ways to learn English vocabulary
Learning a new language is difficult and boring. Every student learns differently, and it's important to find a study method that is right for YOU. I want to put the fun back into studying English with two methods that are fun and which make learning easier and quicker! In this lesson, I will teach you how to make connections between words in order to remember them more easily. I will also reveal my hidden poet talents, so you don't want to miss this one! http://www.engvid.com/2-fun-new-ways-to-learn-english-vocabulary/ TRANSCRIPT Yeah, that was fun. I'm looking forward to hearing that from you later. Hi. James from engVid. In this video what I would like to do is help you work on vocabulary. I want to make it fun, because when things are fun, you work harder and you learn more. And today's lesson, I'm going to teach you two ways to not only just remember vocabulary, but learn how to use vocabulary in a way that we use it, and you will really understand it, and... Heck, it's fun. You're just going to have fun doing it. I'm sure you will. All right? It's a little bit creative. So, let's go to the board. Simple lesson. Here we go. Two ways to have fun with language. Not just language, but vocabulary. Ways that you may not be studying in class, we're going to do here today. The first one I want to talk to you about is fill in the gap. Huh? "A gap" means a space, there's a space between something. So, here's my hands, in between my hands is a gap. Okay? You have a gap between your eyes. One eye, one eye, space. In this case, you see I've got this: "tree __________ chair". Now, fill in the gap doesn't mean just one word. It's a couple of ways you can do this. In this particular game, we're going to take two vocabulary words, "tree", and take another one, "chair", and they're kind of a little obvious to make it easy for you, but what I want you to do is one of two things. The first thing we can do is use x words. What I mean by that is you could say: "I want to use five words, and I want to go from 'tree' to 'chair'." Or: "I want to use three words from 'tree' to 'chair'" or two. Huh? Well, okay. How do I get from "tree"? Okay. "Tree", "cut". You cut the tree down, right? "Lumber". Lumber you make into wood you can use. Let's see. "Carpenter". Find a carpenter. "Craft". "Craft" means make. You're like: "What?" These... All these words... And then I can say: "Furniture". Okay? Okay, furniture. "Chair", so if I have a tree, I cut it down and make it into lumber, I take it to a carpenter, he crafts it into a chair. Five words from A to B. So, one game is tell yourself: "I want to go from five... One word to another word, and I want five words to get there." And you can challenge yourself; maybe go from three words. Right? Or make 10 words. You can use it to describe something. How many words you can use to describe a certain thing. Right? "I have this word, and I want to go to this word. How many words does it take me to get there?" What this does is it teaches you relationship between words, and that also can teach you nouns and verbs, and how they function together. Or, we say "syntax", right? So, start at A, say: "I want to use five words to get there." This is a great word to do with a friend. You can say: "Okay, we're going to do 'tree' and 'chair', you need to do five words that make sense to go from 'tree' to 'chair'", and put a clock on for five minutes. You go, and she goes, you write together and see what words you get. Compare, check them out. "Why did you choose this, and why does this word...? What does this word mean?" Right? So, now, you're not just writing words in a book and saying: "This word means this." You're: "What does it mean? How do I use it? How would other people use it? How would other people think?" Right? Yeah. See? That's fun by yourself or with a friend. Okay, listen, the second way to play this game is: How many words to the answer? What? Well, we can pick up two random words, two, like... I have "chair"... "Tree" and "chair", we could have put "chair" and "moon". Now the game gets a little bit more interesting. Right? "Chair" and "moon". How many words does it get me to go from "chair" to "moon"? Now, you might say: "That's impossible. They have nothing to do with each other." I could say, "Listen, the chair in my living room"-"living room" is a noun-"sits"-which is a verb-"close to the big bay window where I can see the moon at night." How many words did it take me to get from "chair" to "moon"? So, it's playing with words, being creative.
Professional English Vocabulary: Meetings
There's a lot of specialized vocabulary that's used in the office. If you work in an office and want to present yourself professionally, it's especially important that you are able to understand and use these terms. In this Business English video, I'll teach you words that you'll hear in business meetings. We'll go over a show of hands, adjourn, consensus, and other important vocabulary. There's a lot on the agenda for this lesson, so don't forget to take minutes, and to take the quiz here: https://www.engvid.com/professional-english-vocabulary-meetings/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. Welcome to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. In today's video I want to talk to you about some business English, but more specifically, we're going to talk about meetings, business meetings and what goes on there, and some of the vocabulary you will need to know if you have to go to some of these meetings. Okay, we have a bunch of words here. I'm going to go through each one, make sure you understand what it is. So, every meeting has to have an "agenda". Actually I'll stand on this side a little bit. Every meeting has to have an agenda. What is an "agenda"? An agenda is basically the plan or the list of topics that need to be covered in this meeting. Right? So by the end of the meeting you have to cover these points, and then the meeting can break up or whatever. Okay? So that's the plan. We also use this for other situations, like somebody has an agenda, means somebody has a goal they're after. In a business meeting, the plan. The goal is to finish these lists... The list of priorities. At a meeting someone will be "designated" to take notes. Okay? So, "you designate" means you choose someone or you assign someone a specific task. Okay? So, every... Every meeting somebody else takes a turn or sometimes some big companies have one person whose job is to take those notes. Now, those notes are called "minutes", like the same minute... Like, you think about it in terms of time. "Minutes" are the notes or the summary of a meeting. Okay? At the end of the meeting the person who was designated to take the notes will go back to his or her desk, and type up a list of the main highlights of the meeting, and whatever goals were achieved, whatever items need to be discussed next meeting, etc. So, notes. Now, somebody might put forward a "motion". Okay? "Put forward a motion". A motion is basically the same idea as a proposal. Somebody says: "Okay, I think we need to do this. Let's vote on it." So anything that needs to be voted on is called a motion. Okay? Their idea, their plan, their suggestion, etc. After somebody puts forward the motion, everybody else in the meeting room will have "deliberations". Okay? They will deliberate on this motion. Basically they will discuss it. Everybody will say what they think, what they like, what they don't like. There'll be a general discussion about the motion, and that's called deliberations. Sometimes these deliberations involve a "conference call". A conference call is basically a call with people outside the meeting room, it could be on Skype, some sort of video program, it could be just a telephone call, but it's a speaker and everybody in the room can hear and be heard, and the person on the other end can be... Can hear and be heard as well. So it's a conference call. Then everybody will "brainstorm" to come up with new ideas. So, "brainstorming" is basically thinking, but thinking hard about a specific topic, and trying to come up with different ideas for that topic, how to do something, etc. Hopefully everybody in the room will "collaborate", people from different departments might come into a meeting to talk about a project or a product, or whatever, or a campaign. Everybody has to collaborate, everybody has to work together, that's what "collaborate" means. A good company will have people who like to collaborate, they'll like to work as a team; some companies it's a bit more difficult. Then after the deliberations, after the brainstorming, after all their talk, it's time to vote. Okay? So everybody will "cast a ballot". We also talk about this when we talk about politics. After the campaign for a political position, the public goes to cast a ballot. They go to the ballot box to vote. So, "cast a ballot", vote. Now, there are different ways to do it. There's a secret ballot. Okay? If you have a secret ballot, then everybody writes their answer, their choice on a piece of paper, puts it into a box, and then somebody collects them: "Yes", "No", whatever. There's an open ballot that everybody knows what everybody else is voting. This is called "a show of hands". "Show of hands, who's for the project? Who's against?" Okay, and then more hands this side, this side wins; more hands this side, this side wins. "Show of hands". In a classroom a teacher might use this: "Okay, does everybody understand? A show of hands. If you understand, put up your hand." Good. […]

Assess Vocabulary with Cloze Passage
After teaching a new concept, it's necessary to assess students' overall understanding and comprehension. When the instruction includes a heavy dose of new vocabulary, a cloze strategy works well. At first glance, a cloze passage may appear to be a simple fill-in-the-blank worksheet. However, if teachers follow these five steps, they can develop a tool that measures students' comprehension of essential vocabulary. STEP 1: List the key terms students should have mastered within the unit. STEP 2: Generate a summary of the content covered, utilizing any or all of the domain-specific terms listed in Step 1. STEP 3: Strikethrough the vocabulary words within the summary to produce the first draft of a cloze passage. The purpose of this assessment is to measure students' understanding of a concept based on their ability to use domain-specific vocabulary accurately. However, in its current state, the summary will be too vague. For students to apply the correct vocabulary words within the right blanks, they must monitor the cloze passage for meaning. Consequently, the sentences must provide context clues that indicate which word fits where. STEP 4: Reread the initial summary and insert details, synonyms, examples, and explanations that would help students infer what word fits the context of the sentence. (There are several types of context clues. These are the same details students use when they are inferring the meaning of any unfamiliar word within their reading.) STEP 5: The final step is to rewrite the summary incorporating these additional context clues and deleting the vocabulary terms themselves. Plan to add a title to the cloze passage, as it provides students a starting point or main idea to initially focus their thinking. It's also not a bad idea to share the final cloze passage with a colleague before administering it to students. This provides a quick check that there are enough details to infer the intended terms. Introduce cloze-passages Before giving the first cloze-passage assessment, introduce this strategy within a few whole-class activities. Explain that the passage itself provides "clues" that will help students infer the omitted words. Be sure to reveal the types of context clues that will support their inferring. Also, clarify that these clues often come within the sentence but may appear in the sentence before or after the blank, too. For younger grades, execute this whole-class activity with the sentences written on sentence strips and displayed within a pocket chart. Put the vocabulary words on separate index cards and post them on the board for all to see. Begin to read the cloze passages, and as students discuss which term best fits the context, move the index cards around the pockets allowing students to physically see the words within each sentence. For those classrooms with interactive whiteboards, the key words might be blocked out or covered up with a box. Then, when working through the passage with students, write in their suggested answers. After finishing the entire passage, slide their answers above the line of text and delete the box revealing the correct vocabulary word.

TOEFL Tuesday: Vocabulary Questions
Need more TOEFL practice? Check out Magoosh: http://bit.ly/magooshtoeflprep Our lesson today is about a specific type of question on the TOEFL reading section: vocabulary questions. There are 3-5 of these on every TOEFL reading passage. Since you will see 3 or 4 passages on your test, you could see nearly 20 vocabulary questions like this on your test. That makes them very important. They’re also important to do quickly. Simply knowing the meaning of the word is the fastest way to answer a question like this, so expanding your vocabulary is a good idea for improving on these questions. You don’t want to rely on reading the text every time. Let’s look at the example: The primary purpose of the male cicada’s song is to attract a female with which to breed. Cicadas tend to be very well camouflaged, and can blend into their surrounding tree-based environments easily. The song of the cicada provides the clues through which the female cicada can find the nearest male. The word camouflaged in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to hidden buried placed heard (Note that the text is only an excerpt. A full TOEFL text is 700+ words.) If we know “camouflaged” means that something looks like the area around it, so the thing cannot be seen easily, then the answer to this question is clear: “hidden” is the best match in meaning. We don’t need to read the text to answer, which is good, because it’s fast! But if you don’t know the meaning of the word “camouflaged,” the text can help a bit. The description immediately after the word “camouflaged” gives us a clue. It says that cicadas “can blend into their surrounding tree-based environments easily.” But this depends on the phrasal verb “blend in.” The word “blend” means “mix,” in a way. If you blend red and yellow, you create orange, for example. The phrase “blend in” means that something it’s hard to see, because it looks like other nearby things. Animals often use this to be safe, because they’re hard to see. That is same as the meaning of “camouflage.” There’s also another clue. If we consider this paragraph as a whole, we understand a few key points: Male cicadas sing so females will come. Females use the songs as clues. The song helps females find males. So we can infer that the males are hard to find. Imagine if they were easy to find: the females would not need clues. So if they are hard to find, “hidden” makes sense as an answer. But here’s the tricky part: “buried” and “placed” also make some sense. You can’t easily find something that’s buried, and “well placed” could mean that it’s hard to find, in a good location to hide from danger. The TOEFL likes to use words that make some sense as wrong answer. But they simply don’t match the meaning of the tested word. “Camouflaged” and “buried,” for example, have very different meanings. So knowing the meaning before reading the context is extremely important, especially because it can save you so much time. Get ready for the TOEFL!

A fun way to teach vocabulary with Amazing methods and steps
Vocabulary is the knowledge of words and word meanings. As Steven Stahl (2005) puts it, "Vocabulary knowledge is knowledge; the knowledge of a word not only implies a definition, but also implies how that word fits into the world." Vocabulary knowledge is not something that can ever be fully mastered; it is something that expands and deepens over the course of a lifetime. Instruction in vocabulary involves far more than looking up words in a dictionary and using the words in a sentence. Vocabulary is acquired incidentally through indirect exposure to words and intentionally through explicit instruction in specific words and word-learning strategies. According to Michael Graves (2000), there are four components of an effective vocabulary program: wide or extensive independent reading to expand word knowledge instruction in specific words to enhance comprehension of texts containing those words instruction in independent word-learning strategies, and word consciousness and word-play activities to motivate and enhance learning from http://www.readingrockets.org/article/teaching-vocabulary vocabulary words english learn, vocabulary song, vocabulary rap, vocabulary builder, vocabulary words, vocabulary words english learn with meaning, vocabulary song rap, vocabulary for kids, vocabulary words english learn with picture, vocabulary larry, vocabulary, vocabulary acquisition, vocabulary activities, vocabulary and comprehension, vocabulary advanced, vocabulary audiobook, vocabulary assessment, vocabulary app, vocabulary animals, vocabulary about food, vocabulary about weather, a kiss vocabulary, vocabulary building, vocabulary baby first, vocabulary builder for kids, vocabulary builder upper, vocabulary bangla, vocabulary builders in sign language, vocabulary biggie, vocabulary building videos, vocabulary bengali to english, vocabulary workshop level b answers, vocabulary workshop level b, vocabulary workshop level b unit 1, vocabulary course, vocabulary cartoons, vocabulary character traits, vocabulary class, vocabulary context clues, vocabulary continents, vocabulary check, vocabulary channel, vocabulary cause and effect, vocabulary chinese, vocabulary workshop level c, vocabulary workshop level c answers, vocabulary development, vocabulary development session, vocabulary day, vocabulary development strategies, vocabulary development for kids, vocabulary development for everyone - by sandeep manudhane sir, vocabulary definition, vocabulary dictionary, vocabulary documentary, vocabulary dance, vocabulary workshop level d, vocabulary workshop level d answers, vocabulary english, vocabulary english with picture, vocabulary english words, vocabulary en ingles, vocabulary expansion, vocabulary english khmer, vocabulary enhancement, vocabulary english advanced, vocabulary episodes, vocabulary english spanish, vocabulary workshop level e, daily english vocabulary e-04, vocabulary workshop level e answers, vocabulary for ielts, vocabulary for toddlers, vocabulary for 3rd grade, vocabulary foldable, vocabulary for kindergarten, vocabulary for gre, vocabulary flocabulary, vocabulary for toefl, vocabulary french, vocabulary workshop level f, vocabulary workshop level f unit 1, vocabulary games, vocabulary games for elementary, vocabulary games for high school, vocabulary games for middle school students, vocabulary games for the classroom, vocabulary gre words, vocabulary games for kids, vocabulary gmat, vocabulary gravity, vocabulary girl, vocabulary workshop level g, vocabulary workshop level g unit 1, vocabulary help, vocabulary hurricane, vocabulary hat, vocabulary hip hop, vocabulary hotel, vocabulary hat parade, vocabulary home, vocabulary homework, vocabulary health, vocabulary how to talk about advantages and disadvantages, vocabulary in english, vocabulary instruction, vocabulary in context, vocabulary in spanish, vocabulary instruction elementary, vocabulary in bangla, vocabulary instructional strategies, vocabulary improvement, vocabulary ielts, vocabulary in the kitchen, vocabulary journal, vocabulary japanese, vocabulary jobs, jlpt n5 vocabulary, jlpt n3 vocabulary, learn japanese vocabulary,

Next, watch Benjamin's lesson to learn even more political vocabulary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NIcll5RErg TAKE THE QUIZ: http://www.engvid.com/vocabulary-talking-about-politics-in-english/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. Welcome again to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today, as in response to some requests, I'm going to give you a few vocabulary words or a few words-sorry-about political views. Now, before I start, I just want to make sure we understand: This is just about English. We're not having any political discussions, here. This is meant to help you read newspapers, watch TV broadcasts, listen to radio broadcasts about political news, and these are words that you will see quite often when you're reading these things or watching these programs. Okay? So, we're going to look at a few common words that come up when we're talking about political views. Now, "political views" are basically opinions about how politics should run, how governments should run or be run, etc. So first we're going to look at the three main types of government. There are "democracy", "authoritarianism", and "dictatorship". "Democracy" is a process by which several parties... Okay? Several parties, each one has its own leaders and its own members, and they compete for the votes of the public. You have several to choose from, the public chooses. The one that gets the most votes or wins somehow the election in their system, they lead the country for a specified period of time. And then you have another election, you can choose the government again, you can choose another government. You can do whatever you need to do. "Authoritarianism" is a system by which only one party... Or "in which" I should say. Only one party controls the government. So, you don't really have any choice, and the elections are not... If there are elections, are not very legitimate. There's one party, they are the controlling power, they make the decisions, everybody does what they want them to do. "...ism". I'm just going to mention this. You're going to hear a lot of ism's when you're hearing about politics. Okay? It just means you're taking the concept of whatever the word is before it. So: "ism" is more about the concept of whatever. "Dictatorship", this is a form of government where one person controls the government and has all the power, all the decision-making power. We're not going to get into the details of how each of these types of government rules or runs the country they're in, but we're just going to talk about what they are very generally. Next, so here we're getting more into the specific views that people have. Most people are "Liberal" or "Conservative". Now, you're going to hear these words a lot. In America, for example, you hear about the Democrats and the Republicans. Generally, the Democrats are Liberal, the Republicans are Conservative. Liberal government or Liberal politicians believe in the individual. They want every individual to have an opportunity to succeed. They want, basically, to help everyone improve their lives somehow. Conservatives, on the other hand, they're more about everybody takes care of themselves. Sorry, Liberals, they want the government to help the individuals; Conservatives want the individuals to help themselves. And "Conservatives" comes from the word "conserve", there would be an "e" here. They want to keep traditions, they want to keep or maintain values, they don't like change. Liberals, on the other hand, want to change all the time to meet the needs of the people. More good for more people, as it were. Now, if you hear about "left-wing" or "right-wing" or "centrist", you're talking about the spectrum. The spectrum is basically the range of political views. You have the far left-wing, you have the far right-wing, and you have the people in the centre; they're not really right, they're not really left. Although, they generally lean. "Lean" means "rooop", I'm leaning to the right or I'm leaning to the left. So, even centrists, they're usually centre-right or centre-left, it means they're a little bit more to one side than the other, but generally, they're... They want a bit of a mix. Left-wing politicians or left-wing views generally go with Liberals. Right-wing views or right-wing politicians generally go the idea of Conservatives. Centrists want a little bit of a mix. They will go with whoever will do the best benefit for everybody.

Beyond Teaching Vocabulary
Education Thought Leaders and Innovators Series Presents: Beyond Teaching Vocabulary Presented by: Margarita Calderón, Ph.D. & Shawn Slakk All students need to enhance their academic vocabulary and discourse. In particular, English Learners need to learn two or three times as many words per year to catch up or keep up with their core content peers. However, teaching vocabulary in isolation or spending 30 to 40 minutes on one or two words has not proven to be effective. Too much time on vocabulary activities disconnected from the content and text tends to detract precious time from close reading and text-based writing. This webinar will present a framework that teachers embrace because it connects a specific strategy for Preteaching of Vocabulary in 10 to 12 minutes that flows right into comprehending a text that students read immediately after learning the new vocabulary and are able to summarize using the new target vocabulary and other Tier 2 and Tier 3 words from the text. The content concepts, new vocabulary, and key grammatical structures from the mentor text are then used in text-based writing. During writing, more strategies are taught that make it easy for students to revise and edit their writing assignments. For additional resources and information from the presenters visit their website at https://exc-ell.com/. Follow them on Twitter @CalderonSlakk.

Tuesday ACT: Vocabulary Words in Context Questions
In this Tuesday ACT video, Magoosh's ACT expert Kristin Fracchia goes over a helpful strategy for tackling Vocabulary Words in Context questions. This strategy will help you act the Verbal section of the ACT! :D These kinds of questions ask you to find the meaning of a certain word in context. The "in context" part of this is key, because the ACT usually chooses vocabulary words that have multiple meanings! So you should approach these questions by reading the sentence that the word is in. Here's the step by step process to answering these questions: 1. Don't look at the answer choices! This way, you won't get fooled by trick answer choices. 2. Read the sentence that the word is in, and replace the word with a word of your own. 3. Go back to the answer choices, and look for the one that is closest in meaning to the word you chose. If you'd like to learn more about how to approach these questions, you can take a look at the following blog post: https://magoosh.com/hs/act/act-reading/2016/act-reading-strategy-vocabulary-in-context-questions/ Find more free ACT resources on our blog: http://magoosh.com/act/.
