Today’s word of the day exercise is



One of the more academic word in the AWL.

Forms of the word


Using the word

new/original/previous etc: Due to this fault I have had to reinstall the previous version of the software.

official/revised/standard: Sometimes governments produce an official version of events that is misleading.

television/film/print: I quite enjoyed the book, but I must say I preferred the film version.

announce/release/launch: An example of this is how Apple and other mobile phone companies seem to release a new version of their handsets every six months.

    Dear Dominic!

    I would say thank you very much for this new section in your blog. You know, as far as I am concerned, there are about 3,000 academic words that everyone who wants to get high score in IETLS exam must master. I find it very hard to use these words, especially how to use them correctly in each situation.

    Once again, thanks for your new idea and I will look forward to receiving your post every day and learning carefully.

    Have a wonderful job.
