Welcome to the University's website for learning academic vocabulary
Academic vocabulary is the vocabulary you really need to learn in order to succeed in your studies.
The purpose of this website is to help you to learn academic vocabulary. Vocabulary learning requires a lot of time and effort, and requires you to work consistently (see our advice on learning vocabulary). We provide advice, information and exercises for you to practise.
This website is designed by teachers and is structured to support your learning. It is not a user controlled site like Facebook or Flickr. You can think of it as being like a book, only more interactive.
We assume that you already know certain things. What we expect you to know are:
- Basic English grammar and vocabulary
- Grammatical terms in English: noun, verb, adverb, adjective
