IELTS Vocabulary: topic idea preparation

On my member site I asked students to prepare vocabulary ideas for the following topic:

What do the arts contribute to our lives?

I gave two tips that can help you to think of vocabulary ideas.

1) Start by thinking of examples to make the topic (the arts) more real.

- Paintings e.g. in the National Gallery in London
- Music e.g. live concerts and performances
- Theatre e.g. a Shakespeare play

2) Then think about the topic from different perspectives.

- Personal: enjoyment, inspiration, enrich our lives, capture our imagination
- Cultural: heritage, national identity, connection to the past
- Economic: employment, boost the economy, attract visitors, tourism

Some of the students shared many more ideas, and they seemed to find the 'perspectives' idea useful. Try it yourself.
