Read on to find out why…


Facilitate - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

 

“Facilitate” – (/fuh-SIH-lih-tay[t]/ – /fə(ʌ).ˈsɪ.lə(ɪ).te[t]/) – [Verb]…

To Make Easier – To Help – To Assist

“The creation of The GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! TOEFL Vocabulary Database was done to facilitate the test-taker in learning Vocabulary which is actually necessary – and will not waste the test-takers preparation time, like many other ‘TOEFL Vocabulary’ books available on-line.”


It is possible that the word “Facilitate” will be on the exam or in one of the questions, but if it does appear in the exam, and is not one of the vocabulary questions, then it will be assumed that the test-taker will already know the word.

If, however, it DOES appear as one of the vocabulary questions, it will be presented in a way that one should be able to determine the meaning through context.  But as you are reading this now, you will not have to worry either way. 😉


“Facilitator” – (/fuh-SIH-lih-tay-d’r/ – /fə(ʌ).ˈsɪ.lə(ɪ).te.ɾɚ/) – [Concrete Noun]…

A Helper – A Person Who Assists A Group – Someone Who Presides Over Some Action


“Facility” – (/fə-SIH-lə-dee/ – /fə.ˈsɪ.lə.ɾiː/) – [Abstract & Concrete Noun]…

The Ability To Do Something – The Tools To Do Something – The Place Where Something Is Done


The “Facilities” – (/fə-SIH-lə-deez/ – /fə.ˈsɪ.lə.ɾiːz/) – [Concrete Noun / Slang Term]…

Besides being the plural version of the word “Facility” it is also very common (at least in American English) that this word is used as a more “formal” way of referring to…

The Bathroom – WC – Toilet – Restroom – The “John” – The “Shitter” – The place where one “*does their business” 😀

“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…
