ESL ACT Vocabulary (1)

This vocabulary is specially edited for ESL students or non-English speakers who will take part in ACT test. The generic ACT vocabularies are for high school students, mainly for students of grade 12 and grade 11 in USA high school. However, ESL students and non-English speakers are in separate language circumstances; their vocabularies completely come from various textbooks. If they prepare ACT by generic word lists, they will miss some common words, which often occur in ACT test papers but belong to lower grades, because generic ACT word lists unlikely include lower grades’ words. This ESL ACT vocabulary is edited to fix this leak. Basically, words in this list aren’t very difficult. They are commonly to be ignored by mainstream ACT vocabularies because of simple, but ESL students don’t know them. To help non-English speakers study these words easier, this list includes definition of each word in 20 languages.
