واژگان ضروری برای نمره بالای آیلتس و تافل

در زیر یکی دیگر از مقاله های مجله نیوزویک گزینش شده و واژگان دشوار آن بهمراه واژگان دشوار چند مقاله دیگر در اینجا آورده شده است. زبان آموزانی که بدنبال بدست آورده نمره هایی بالاتر از معمول در آزمون های آیلتس و تافل هستند (برای مثال نمره 8 آیلتس و 110 تافل) باید توجه داشته باشند که بررسی این مقاله و عادت به خواندن آن ها و بیرون کشیدن لغات دشوار تر و عبارت ها میتواند در بخش ریدینگ و همچنین در رایتینگ برای ایشان بسیار سودمند باشد. در پایان بهره گیری از یک فرهنگ واژگان یا دیکشنری توانمند و استاندارد و وارد کردن واژگان تازه در یک دفترچه کوچک برای بازبینی و مرور های بعدی را فراموش نکنید.
