This workbook has been written for students who are planning to sit either the Academic or General Training modules of the IELTS examination. It covers some of the main vocabulary areas that you will need for, or  come across in, the Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking sections of the exam. We hope that you find the exercises in this book useful, and that the vocabulary you acquire will help you to achieve the grade you  want in the IELTS.Good luck!

Structure of the book
Each vocabulary area is presented in the form of a self-contained module with task-based activities which present each vocabulary item in context.
Pages 1 – 57 focus on general vocabulary items. Some of these are relevant to specific tasks or questions in the IELTS examination (for example, describing how something works, talking about changes shown  in a graph or table, saying where things are and following directions).
Pages 58 – 104 focus on topic-specific vocabulary areas which may be required in the examination (for example, education, architecture, family matters and science and technology). Each module consists of  three tasks:the first two present vocabulary items in context, each with a practice or recognition exercise, and the third gives you the opportunity to review the vocabulary in a gap-fill exercise.
Pages 105 – 119 contain some productive practice exercises which will give you the opportunity to practise using your vocabulary in some IELTS-style speaking and writing tasks. These tasks are followed by  some sample answers. Note that these sample answers are there only to give you some guidance as to how the tasks might be answered. There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answers.

Pages 120 – 139 contain a comprehensive key so you can check your answers. The answer key also gives additional information about specific vocabulary items or general vocabulary areas, as well as other useful words or phrases.
Using the workbook
You should not work through the book mechanically from beginning to end. It is better to choose areas that you are unfamiliar with, or areas that you feel are of specific interest or importance to yourself.
