Vocabulary is a huge part of your IELTS score on both Writing and Speaking especially if you want to achieve a Band 8 or higher.

That’s why it’s important to ask a former Examiner like a member of the 3 Keys IELTS team when you want to know what vocabulary will help you score high on IELTS.

We know exactly what the Examiner wants.

In our video today Jessica will answer some listeners questions about the best ways to use slang vocabulary terms to score high on IELTS.

Computer IELTS is coming soon!

Special thanks to Mani Yogmat who asked some great questions.

We will answer his other question next week about ideas.

Today it’s about vocabulary.

Mani asked if he could describe a film that is popular in the box office with the word “super duper.”

You have to know the meaning of super duper.

It means that it’s great. It does not mean that something is popular or big.

So you want to use this when you are talking about something that you think is awesome or great.

If you use it correctly, this word could score you points because it’s interesting and other students are not using it.

More IELTS vocabulary

What does “phew” mean?

It signifies a sense of relief. For example, if in IELTS Speaking Part 2 you are talking about a problematic situation that you had, you could describe your reaction in the end.

For example, you might say, “When I finally got on the plane, I was like ‘phew’ “

In IELTS Speaking Part 1 and 2, you could definitely be asked to talk about movies.

To stand out in front of the examiner for using interesting vocabulary, instead of saying movie, say ‘flick.’

If a movie is of poor quality, you could call it a ‘B movie.’

A more high-level phrase to describe poor quality is ‘subpar.’

No matter what you do, you must always try to expand your vocabulary beyond the words that the average Band 6 student would use.

This requires a clear study plan and a system like the one we have at 3 Keys IELTS.
