Academic word list

Posted by Manjusha Filed in English vocabulary

The Academic Word List (AWL) contains 570 headwords and around 3000 derivatives. These words are called academic words because they frequently appear in academic textbooks.

If you are preparing for a standardized test like TOEFL, IELTS or GRE, you should learn as many academic words as possible because a good knowledge of these words is absolutely necessary to score well on these tests.
