Hi people! I’ve decided to launch a weekly vocabulary series so as to provide you guys the essential vocabularies and phrases for the exam. On the other hand it helps me revise the knowledge I’ve gained in the past five months. I mean, being at the level of C1, you are actually able to understand everything single word that is spoken in a basic daily conversation, and you don’t want to lose that ability, right?
Today we’re starting off with six vocabularies of the same word family. Sometimes I may not have every single meaning of the word because I’ve picked the one which has seemed to be the most important to me. So please feel welcome to check it out on your own. I usually use the Cambridge Dictionary which is excellent. I would recommend you guys to learn the vocabularies in English because it helps you think in English and therefore improves your fluency.
1. to conceive = to imagine; to invent
2. concept = idea / plan
3. inconceivable = unlikely, e.g. It’s inconceivable that Mya failed in the Maths test.
4. conceivable = likely
5. conceptual = ‘based on ideas or principles’ which is used to described something lacks creativity and may be therefore dull and difficult to understand
6. conception = ‘an idea of what something or someone is like, or a basic understanding of a situation or principle, e.g. People from different cultures have different conceptions of the world.’
