In this type of exam, you have to match the two words that go together.

  • When there are two groups of words you put together one word from each group.
  • Sometimes you make collocations, e.g. verb + noun: make + friends, do + your homework, etc.
  • Sometimes you make compound nouns, e.g. extreme sports: snow + boarding, wind + surfing, mountain + biking, etc.
  • Sometimes you put a verb or adjective with a preposition, e.g. listen + to, look + at, agree + with, good + at, interested + in, etc.
  • Always start with the words you know go together.
  • If you don’t know which words go together, guess. You may be right!
  • Check your answers carefully when you finish.

The best way for me to learn vocabulary is to read really much and also highlight the difficult words so that you can later search it up in a dictionary and I also like to make sure how the word is pronounced and how it is used.

i´m very visual,so the best way to me to learn new vocabulary is pasting the picture on my notebook and writing the name of it and also reading.

I think that reading is the best for improving our vocab. I always try to read as much books in English as possible, even the newspapers. I usually read The Times, Washington Post, The Guardian, Seventeen etc. This site also counts:). LearnEnglish Teens is very helpful.
