Vocabulary for Letter 'J': Part 1

Vocabulary for Letter 'J': Part 1


You can learn English language vocabulary consistently throughout the year. At the end of the year, you can have a large number of vocabulary which can make you speak and write good and meaningful English. 


REMEMBER: You have to learn these vocabulary regularly. Don't jump to another month or letter until you are there. Other months and letters will come around, and you will learn the vocabulary for a particular month or letter. 

To understand this list of January Vocabulary,  use the dictionary (preferably English - English Dictionary) or a thesaurus to find the meaning, synonyms and antonyms for each vocabulary. Also, try to practice how to apply them in your own daily spoken or written sentences. 

We have compiled the vocabulary words in this way because  letters 'J', 'K', and 'L' are adjacent to each other in the English alphabet, and we encourage you to learn them together in January. Grab your good dictionary (preferably English - English Dictionary), Thesaurus, or Google each of these vocabularies and enjoy their meanings and uses.
