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.
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.
