We all know that IELTS reading is the toughest of all modules. IELTS writing is second in difficulty level.both these modules require a healthy vocabulary at your command. plenty of times, students are not able to get the answers in IELTS reading because of poor vocabulary .

As I frequently harass(tease) you in almost all of my posts that you have to be a voracious(greedy) reader in order to get higher band score. it is my responsibility to get you aware that you can learn plenty of words and expressions without getting bored or sitting constantly cramming words.

But how ? through reading different novels,newspapers,books and magazines.

Reading the books is the simplest and fun way to learn the words in general and improve your vocabulary in particular. You just have to be in habit of putting this tremendous technique in practice.

In this new, advanced technique of learning words, I will give you words in the context of the reading which I get from my reading. You just have to follow below mentioned steps to learn these words perfectly and permanently.

Step 1: Try to guess the meaning of the word from the context of reading.

Step 2: If you are not able to get the meaning. Try to figure out if it is used in a positive way or a negative way.

Step 3: Then see the meaning of these words at the end of this article.

Step 4: Then see the meaning of the same words in a good dictionary. spend sometime there. Read the definition, examples and synonym and then forget.
