Level 05 vocabulary list

IELTS vocabulary level 5 The first step in being able to improve your vocabulary is to have a clear collection of words to study from, graded from the easier, more common language up to more advanced levels.

IELTSforFREE has a 10 level system to improve your IELTS vocabulary, from Level 1 to Level 10. Once you have looked through the list below, test your self with our Level 5 vocabulary practice page.

Tips for using the vocabulary for IELTS lists:

  • look carefully through the list to make sure you know the words and are confident that you can use them in your written or spoken English.
  • Look up the meaning of any new words and put them in a sentence. If you’re not sure your sentence is correct, post it in the comments section at the bottom of the page and we’ll check it for you.
  • Make a handwritten note of any new words, ideally in a separate note pad that you carry with you. Whenever you have a few minutes – waiting for a bus, just before going to sleep, waiting for the kettle to boil – take out the list and look through, reminding yourself of the word and the meaning.
  • Improving your vocabulary for IELTS takes practice, so try to use the new word(s) in any suitable situation over the next few weeks – using the new word will help you remember it!
  • Write the new word a number of times – writing down vocabulary will help you remember it and will also help with spelling.
