Raymond's Independent Learning Log


What I did 

I read some pieces of news on BBC, I was supposed to write down the word I had learned and managed to create sentence for each word.

What I learn

I learned a lot of word during reading news, here is the list of the words.

advocate—publicly recommend or support:  Voters supported candidates who advocated an Assembly.
revelation—a surprising and previously unknown fact that has been disclosed to others: Revelations about his personal life are issued these days.
espionage—spy:  He chose to work as a espionage after college.
fugitive—quick to disappear; fleeting: He was about to live on a fugitive life for he had annoy the current king.
arbitrary—based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system: You can not decide in such a arbitrary way, maybe he is not on propose.

panel—a small group of people brought together to investigate or decide on a particular matte: The trial was in charge of the five people panel.


  1. Firstly, I am very glad that I can learn many new words from your effort. However, I hope that you can post more new words the next time.

  2. This is very interesting especially so as espionage and mystery are my favourite genres of books. I find that writing sentences using words is a very good way of learning new words and their definitions.

  3. Hi it's good that you have listed out the word you have learned about. It would be better if you gave a short summary about the news that you have read.

  4. It's good that you have put the meaning for the words you do not know or understand.

    I think that you can improve on your sentence structure and grammar because they are not grammatically sound, you can also put a summary of what you have read
