Geographical vocabulary for IELTS

IELTS exams seem to be particularly keen on geography. I suppose the idea is that we are all surrounded by geographical things - rivers, hills, cities - so the language is useful for everyone (as opposed to chemistry or philosophy, for example).


So all parts of the IELTS exams can contain questions where, to get the correct answer, you need to know some geographical terms.

How many of the words in the box do you know? 

 a hill
a range
boulders
a puddle
a hamlet
a town
a stream
a tributary
gravel
a pond
a mound
a lake/reservoir
a bush
pebbles
a city
a tree
a wood





Can you put the words into this table in order (from smallest to largest)? 

a)

river

b)


sea/ocean
c)

mountain

d)

rocks

e)


forest
f)
village



            Watch the video for the answers.
