Ikmal Hakeem (17)
What I did:
I decided to catch up on some of the recent news articles about the advancements in science and the environment. Along the way, I came across some words that I did not know and looked them up in a dictionary to learn the meanings of the words which could be used in future essays. I can try to use these terms that I have learnt in my speech and future essay writing exercises in order to improve on them.
What I learned:
Words I do not understand:
quipped - a clever or witty remark
ejecta - matter ejected
synthesize - to form by combining parts or elements
placards - to publicize
conurbations - an extensive urban area resulting from the expansion of several cities or towns so that they coalesce but usually retain their separate identities.
contradictions - direct opposition between things compared
