Improving your vocabulary for IELTS writing.
Updated: October 2023
I often mark IELTS essays and I tend to find the same words keep coming up in the writing, such as ‘a lot of’ / ‘humans’ / ‘nowadays’ / ‘like’. Actually, these are not wrong, and using these in your sentences would not be considered grammatically incorrect.
However, the IELTS examiner is checking to see if you can use a wide range of vocabulary especially collocations. If possible, try to avoid overusing these words to help get a better vocabulary score… See the post below for more details.
