Daily Words 8

OK. Here are today’s words. The Daily Words lists are specially chosen for students who need to pass advanced English exams or for anyone who wants to work quickly, easily and effectively towards a better vocabulary. Most of them are words that you won’t think of learning for every day speaking or reading for pleasure but ALL of them are words which regularly appear in all the advanced exams. Learning Daily Words is also a great exercise for any native English speaker who needs to improve their spelling.
