IELTS Vocabulary: 'less common' phrases

 Here's a list of the 'less common' phrases that I used in yesterday's speaking answers. Notice that I'm highlighting phrases and collocations, not individual 'big' words.

  • are difficult in the sense that
  • they require a high level of skill
  • that must be developed through many years of study and practice
  • might not require such high skill levels
  • they are known to be extremely stressful and sometimes traumatic
  • do something meaningful
  • achieving a great ambition
  • for altruistic reasons
  • it's their duty to contribute to society
  • in the grand scheme of things
  • a tight deadline
  • minor inconveniences
  • the horrors of war that soldiers face
  • life-and-death situations
