TOEFL Vocabulary – “Educate” (Functional TOEFL Vocabulary)

Educate Yourself - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

The Word “Educate”


Educate Yourself - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!


(Functional TOEFL Vocabulary)


“Educate” – (/EH-dʒə-kay[t]/ – /ˈɛ.dʒə.ke[t]/) [dynamic verb]…


  • “(to) Educate (one’s self or an other) is to provide or procure information upon any subject – either passively or actively, for the sake of expanding one’s comprehension – and thus – over-all knowledge of either a particular subject or all possible subjects, generally.”

“Dad” – TOEFL Vocabulary (+ Speaking Section – Task One Tip)

The Word “Dad” – TOEFL Vocabulary

(“Level-Checking” – (semi-)”Functional” – “Unique Word Transformation” Vocabulary)

Dad - GiveMesomeEnglish!!!


“Dad” – (/dæ[d]/ – /dæ[d]/) [concrete noun]…

“The word ‘Dad’ is a colloquial term for the word ‘Father’.”


The word “Dad” – being the most common colloquial and familiar alternative to the word “Father” in the English language, can be fit into a number of the categories that I have included into The TOEFL Vocabulary Database.

  • It functions as “Level-Checking” Vocabulary, because the chances that one who is preparing for The TOEFL iBT Exam has not yet heard of, or knows, this word are quite low…  yet, if it happens, then this is a good indication that that person’s “Level” is not yet high enough for The TOEFL iBT Exam, and there-fore, also not high enough to excel in a University-type setting.  Additionally, it will be unconsiciously expected that a person in both situations – absolutely – will know this word…  Thus the term “Level-Checking”.
  • It functions as (semi-) “Functional” Vocabulary, because the chances that a person will hear this word in a question on the exam may happen – but more likely, the fact that a person may USE this word in his or her answer in the Independent Speaking Section, and Writing Section answers is quite high.  However, I use the prefix “semi-” because the person does not NEED to use this term.  If one wishes to mention his or her “Dad”, then that person can always say “Father”, “Papa”, or whatever else is more common from where that person comes from.

But There is Much More…

Functional TOEFL Vocabulary #2 – “Campus”

TOEFL Vocabulary

For those of you who help student prepare for the TOEFL iBT Exam, you already know that there really is no such thing as TOEFL Vocabulary.  However, a lot of people seem to be stuck on this idea.  That is why I have created the TOEFL Vocabulary data-base.  Not all of the words in the data-base will be on the exam, but many of them will.  The rest of them can be used as a way to check one’s level.


(A Thorough Explanation Can Be Found Here)


But the ones that will definitely not be a waste of time for students to learn are being systematically turned into short/medium/long blog posts…  whatever is need for that word or group of words.

The Third In The Series Is Below


The Word “Campus”

(Functional TOEFL Vocabulary)


“Campus” – (/KæM-pihs/ – /ˈkæm.pə(ɪ)s/) [concrete & abstract noun]…

“The grounds, buildings, facilities, of a college, university, and/or institue of education.”

“In the Speaking Section of the TOEFL iBT Exam, the test-taker will be required to listen to, read, respond to and report about various campus-type situations…”


From the description and example sentence above, it should not be difficult to comprehend why the word “Campus” is our next “Functional” TOEFL Vocabulary word.
