400 IELTS AWL 1

This is a most common IELTS Academic Word List (AWL), small but useful. It was initially published at website of the School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. This IELTS word list is specially selected for ESL students who are already in English countries and are preparing academic test. Lots of general words are filtered out so that the list is relatively short. In fact, you hardly find smaller IELTS AWL from Internet. What you see in this website is much different from original list. We added new definitions and practice to every word. Considering that ELS usually learn new English words through native explanations. Based our IELTS word bank we offer definitions of 20 languages to select. Native language explanation will decrease the difficulty of understanding new word and save much of time to prepare IELTS AWL.
