Historically, IELTS vocabulary tests understanding of academic and general words. Now it also tests usage across contexts like education, health, and travel.
Vocabulary shows awareness of context. Using suitable words for informal versus formal situations, different topics and purposes display a grasp of language.
Building Connection
Crafting a cohesive narrative needs varied vocabulary. Connecting ideas logically, and explaining cause and effect requires precise words for clarity.
Speech Flow
In speech flow, vocabulary allows for formulating, clarifying, and developing thoughts. In writing flow, it builds logical arguments paragraph by paragraph.
Wider vocabulary aids real-life use cases like studying abroad, immigration, or work.
