  • Top SA... Oh, hi! Sorry, I forgot to say hi again. Hi, everybody, and welcome back to

  • Weekly Words. This week the topic is going to be... SAT words. Words that students who

  • are studying for the SAT. The SAT is a kind of college preparatory test or a test that

  • students take usually to apply for colleges. The words are typically fairly challenging

  • for high school students, and these are some other words that might cause trouble for some

  • people. So let's begin.

  • The first word isassiduous.” “Assiduousis a word that means somebody who ispersistent

  • or who is a always trying to do their best to work really, really hard. You might have

  • a coworker who isassiduous.” I suppose you could also use it if you're just describing

  • anything that's hard-working, like ants, for example, you might say, “Ants are very assiduous

  • creatures. They work hard. They can lift more than their own body weight.” Okay, that's

  • pretty good.

  • Next. “Intuitive.” “Intuitive.” Someone who isintuitiveis someone who has

  • a good instinct, or they're able to sense what the right thing is to do without, you

  • know, having to be taught what the right thing is. So let's say, maybe you're going surfing

  • for the first time, and it comes to you really, really easily after just your first couple

  • tries. Your friends might say, “Wow, you're really intuitive.” You know how to do this

  • without, you know, having to take a lesson or anything. Great job! A good trait to be intuitive.

  • Precocious.” “Precociousis another usually a positive word. “Precocious is

  • usually used for children, children who are kind of strangely talented

  • at something even when they're very, very little. So maybe you've seen on YouTube a

  • kid who can play the piano extremely well even though he or she is five years old.

  • We might say, “He's precocious,” orShe's a precocious child.” She can do

  • so much but she's so young. It's usually a very impressive thing that the kids are

  • able to do.

  • Alright, the next one isevanescent.” “Evanescent.” Evanescent. “Evanescent

  • is another adjective which means something that fades away rather quickly or something

  • that's very short-lived. Oh, to be very romantic about it, you might say, “The scent of her

  • perfume was very evanescent.” You could smell it for a brief moment, and then it faded

  • away. Ooh, that was kinda nice.

  • The next word isanecdote.” Ananecdoteis usually some kind of a short, funny story

  • that's a retelling of an event that happened to you. It might be a written story or a spoken

  • story. “Oh! Wanna hear an anecdote about my last trip to Bali? It was hilarious.”

  • I don't know that I'd ever say that though. It's not something you'd use so much in

  • casual conversation. I feel like a critic might write this word about someone else's

  • writing. “The anecdotes she chooses to include in her writing are very humorous,” for example.

  • Okay, well, we learned a few SAT words that, um, students might have trouble with when

  • they're studying for the test in their high school years. I hope that you find some of

  • these words useful and can use them in your daily life as well. Thanks for joining us

  • this week, and I'll see you again next time. Bye-bye!
