In this IELTS Vocabulary lesson for academic reading, I look at a paragraph on climate change from the IELTS 11 book by Cambridge University Press (Test 1 Reading 3). I analyze the high-level vocabulary and expressions in this paragraph.
I recommend doing this kind of exercise with as many reading tests as you can. They are very useful for learning new vocabulary and improving all four of your IELTS skills.
