How to use these topic vocabulary lists

These vocabulary lists are not intended for you to go away and try to memorise all the different words and phrases.  That's not what learning IELTS vocabulary is all about.

I have created them as a resource for you to use when answering practice questions on the respective topics.

Focus on the words and phrases you find most useful and most comfortable using. Add them to your vocabulary notebook and learn them properly, but don’t waste your time trying to memorise them all.
