Developing your personal vocabulary is a great way to strengthen your skills in English. 


Recognising which words you should be able to spell and use confidently, and challenging yourself with some harder vocabulary is an important step! It can help you communicate more clearly, especially in your writing!


In this activity, you will be working with some key pieces of vocabulary and spotting when they should be used. 


Have a look at the words and then get ready to answer some questions!
