IELTS Vocabulary: paraphrasing

 Let's review the paraphrasing that I used in Thursday's lesson:

  • the pie charts compare = the pie charts give information about
  • water usage = the water used
  • water usage = water is consumed
  • the rest of the world = the world as a whole
  • the rest of the world = worldwide
  • for residential purposes = by homes
  • San Diego and California = two American regions

Remember: Paraphrasing is considered to be a 'high level' language skill. The ability to say or write the same thing in several different ways is the sign of an 'advanced' language user.
