Week 7: Learning new specialised and academic vocabulary
If you decide to study at university, you will need to learn new vocabulary. This will allow you to become a member of the academic community that studies your chosen subject.
Learning to read and use new words may appear difficult at the beginning but with time it is possible to build a good academic and specialist vocabulary. This week you will learn a range of strategies that will help you to understand, learn and record new words.
Welcome to Week 7!
This week you continue working on academic and specialised vocabulary. Academic and specialist terms can help you to write about your chosen subject in a much clearer and more precise way and to be understood by people who have the same interests both in academic and workplace contexts.
This week you will learn a range of strategies that can help you choose which words to learn and do so in an effective way. In particular, you will learn how to make the most of online dictionaries and look at ways to record new words for future use.
By the end of this week you will:
- be aware of a range of vocabulary learning strategies
- be able to make the most of the available online dictionaries
- be able to choose which words to learn
- be able to record new words.
