FCE Vocabulary: Vocabulary Building (8)

This week, in our FCE vocabulary building series, we are going to look at science and technology.

Would you be able to answer if the examiner asked you the following questions on the Speaking exam?

  • Are you interested in science and technology?
  • How have science and technology changed our lives?
  • How will science and technology affect our lives in the future?

Suggested Use of Your FCE Vocabulary

Do you feel confident enough to write an informative article on the second part of the FCE Writing paper? Remember, as most students go for the easy options (the letter or email), it is easier to achieve a good mark if you try a more adventurous option.

However, if you are going to try this type of exercise, you need to make sure that you actually know how to do the exercise. You also need to make sure that you know enough good vocabulary and phrases.

As always, start by writing down your answers and then analyse them:

  • Are the sentences grammatically correct?
  • Is the vocabulary extensive enough?
  • Can you improve your answers?

A number of students would write or say something like this:

  • No, I’m not interested in science and technology.
  • Science and technology has changed our lives a lot.
  • I think that science and technology will affect our future lives a lot.

By using a more sophisticated vocabulary, your phrases could look something like this:

  • I have to admit that I’m not really that interested in science and technology.
  • Over the last couple of decades, science and technology have influenced our lives significantly.
  • In my opinion, science and technology will most likely impact our future lives enormously.
