100 words for CEFR Level C1 list 2


These 100 words for CEFR Level C1 list 2 are designed to help you improve your general English skills, but also to help you prepare for formal English test like IELTS and PTE.
Tips for using these vocabulary lists:

  • look carefully through the list to make sure you know the words and are confident that you can use them in your written or spoken English.
  • look up the meaning of any new words and put them in a sentence. If you’re not sure your sentence is correct, post it in the comments section at the bottom of the page and we’ll check it for you.
  • make a handwritten note of any new words, ideally in a separate note pad that you carry with you. Whenever you have a few minutes – waiting for a bus, just before going to sleep, waiting for the kettle to boil – take out the list and look through, reminding yourself of the word and the meaning.
  • write the new word a number of times – writing down vocabulary will help you remember it and will also help with spelling.

Another good technique is to type the word into Google and read the example sentences in the search results.
