IELTS Vocabulary: where do you get your language from?

Where are you getting your English language from? Look at the lists below.

List A

  • I use a dictionary to find new words.
  • I often translate vocabulary from my own language.
  • I learn lists of words from a vocabulary textbook.

List B

  • I learn by reading ‘real’ native-speaker texts (e.g. newspaper articles, books, essays by Simon and other reliable teachers).
  • I watch lots of ‘real’ English videos online, and I record useful vocabulary in a notebook.
  • I chat to native English speakers and try to copy the expressions that they use.
  • My English teacher gives me authentic English texts, video and audio, and we get our vocabulary from those sources.

Which list describes you best?
