- For Teachers
In Malaysia,it is important for a student to use as much as many vocabs to get merits in his or her essays.
Using lethargic,fatigue or dead beat instead of using tired.
Using fly into a fury,beside oneself with anger,livid instead of using angry.
Now my problem is where can I find all these difficult words which are hardly used by a student in any webside?
Any other alternative?
You should buy advanced ESL books.
Try and look for SAT and GRE word lists on the Internet - these are american exams, and many native speakers in their eighteens don't have that strong a vocabulary (all things being equal), eg. when it comes to formal synonyms.
Hi,there! I use a "Dictionary of Difficult Words" which I bought from a local bookstore. It has helped me a lot in understanding "heavy" words.
