This activity will help you develop your understanding of vocabulary that is specific to your subject.  Explaining something to someone else is a brilliant way to check and improve your own understanding.

  • Write down 10 words that are particular to your subject area
  • Show them to someone who does not study on your course
    • Can they understand them?
    • If not, explain what they mean

If you are struggling to find or define subject specific vocabulary, try using Library Search.  Just enter your subject plus the word dictionary into the search box and see what comes up!  For more information about using Library Search, check out your dedicated Subject Guide.
