This core academic vocabulary is used by writers in many different subject areas. Learning vocabulary from the AWL will help you improve your comprehension of academic texts. It will also help you write assignments in an academic style. Of course the basic vocabulary of English is also important for academic learners. To check if you know this basic vocabulary, look at Word Lists.
