think might be useful to learn. Highlight them.

2. Write definitions of these words/phrases in your own words. You may use a

dictionary to find the meanings, but then write your own definition.

3. For each word, write one example sentence which uses the word. The example

sentences must not be from the dictionary, they must be relevant to you.

e.g.

Migrant (noun): Somebody who moves from their country to another country to live

there permanently.

Example sentence: I am not a migrant because I plan to return to my own country

when I have finished my studies in the UK.
