“Ability” – Functional TOEFL Vocabulary

(From The GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! TOEFL Vocabulary Database)


Ability - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!


“Ability” – (uh-BIH-lə-dee / ə(ʌ).ˈbɪ.lə.ɾiː) | [abstract noun]…


“The quality or state of being able; the capacity to do or be (something); the capacity of doing something; having the necessary power/skills/capacity to do and/or be something.”


The TOEFL iBT Exam is designed to test one’s Ability to function in a University-type setting.”


Why Is This “Functional” Vocabulary?


The word “Ability” is a word which may or may not be in the directions, and/or in one of the questions on The TOEFL iBT Exam.


However, since The TOEFL iBT Exam tests one’s “Ability” to function in a University-type setting, and this word is also used to say as much in all the text-books and preparation materials FOR the exam…  this then definitely qualifies the word“Ability” to be the first TOEFL Excellence – Vocabulary Word, and puts it into the category of “Functional Vocabulary”


Congratulations “Ability”… you have just gone down in history as being #1 in TOEFL Excellence

Remember:  If there are any words or phrases in this post that you do not know – look them up.  Though you do not need to waste time memorizing long lists of vocabulary before taking The TOEFL Exam, it is always a good idea to look-up words that you do not know.  Even if you think you know them, you may be surprised, so if you see a word that you may “know” but can’t actually define or explain…  look it up.  I suggest Wikitionary.com

And if you have any questions, feel free to ask any time.


Have An Excellent Day!

😉
