IELTS Advice: words that I would ban

I ban my students from using certain words in the IELTS test. The easiest way for me to explain why I ban these words is that most native speakers wouldnt use them if they were doing the test. Here are a few of my least favourites:

  • Moreover - Native speakers hardly ever use this word, and students tend to use it wrongly. Just use furthermore or also.
  • Demerits - Its ok to talk about the merits of something, but the word demerits seems unnatural. Just use disadvantages or drawbacks.
  • Hence / Thusly - These words sound too formal and old-fashioned. Just use therefore or as a result.

Remember that " IELTS Advice: topic vocabulary is the key!" is the key to a high score, not difficult words.
