Ways to improve vocabulary for IELTS and TOEFL


English is a globally recognized language and having a good grasp over this can give an edge over others in the English Proficiency Tests such as TOEFL and IELTS.

TOEFL stands for Test Of English as a Foreign Language and IELTS as International English Language Testing System. Universities in countries such as the USA, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland accept students based on their scores and bands in their respective exams.

In both of these exams there are several sections such as Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. So, it is essential that the students practise well and earn a good grasp over this language.

Vocabulary plays a very important role in both the examinations. Knowing more words will help a student understand things more easily in the reading and listening sections. It will also help them demonstrate good communication skills while attempting the speaking and writing sections.

We have come up with some ways in which you can improve your vocabulary for both the exams.


Reading is a way through which you'll come across new words regularly if you do read regularly and with enough practice, you'll retain them in your mind as well.

2.Making a Dictionary

Having an Oxford Dictionary is a must but making a self dictionary is much more important. You can make your own dictionary in which you can write every new word you come across and any word which you tend to forget often and you can practise them.


It is very important to revise, you can either make flashcards to revise or you can just recall some words in your leisure. Without revision, your whole hard work is futile.


Use words which you learn in your day to day conversation. This trick will keep you familiar with the new words you would be learning.

5.Word of the Day

Either download a verified app or you can use our site to learn a new word daily. This will give you an edge over others in your preparation and your no day will go waste without learning a new word.
