Tier 2 Vocabulary

3 years ago
Tier 2 words as shown in this link are High-frequency words used by mature language learners across many subjects or content areas. These make you sound more fluent. You likely already have ways to express the same ideas or concepts, but these are more complex words that you may not be exposing yourself to enough.

*However, please note that these are words that are usually taught under the instruction of a teacher because he or she will know whether you have enough words to express the same ideas in a more basic way. If you cannot express the same idea in a more basic way, then these words are too advanced for you*.
