Which Words Do You Need To Stop Using In Your English Conversations?

✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-conversation-stop-using-boring-words/

We all know that if someone uses the same word again and again in a  conversation, it quickly becomes boring to listen to. Using the same  limited vocabulary tells listeners you are a new language learner.  Native English speakers vary their use of vocabulary to express their  thoughts and feelings.

It’s easy to get some quick and painless wins. Start by identifying  common vocabulary in your conversations, words you “over use” in your  conversations. These are the ones you will need to work on. Practice  substituting these common “generic” adjectives with more precise  adjectives, which are a better way to show what you mean.

Using more precise adjectives in the speaking section of IELTS and  TOEFL exams will show your examiner that your grasp of English  vocabulary is good and it will improve your score.

In this podcast,  I’ll share more examples of vocabulary substitution. I will provide you  with a step-by-step example of what you should do when you’ve found the  vocabulary you rely on too much and over use in your conversations. So  jump in and start listening!
