Vocabulary for IELTS: Body language

Body language can be very informative, but if you jump to conclusions when you interpret a particular gesture , you may misinterpret what it means.

For example, people who look away to avoid eye contact may not necessarily be lying: they could just be very shy. To understand body language, therefore, we need to observe a combination of behavior that a person displays. With lying, for example, look out for any or all of these:

Avoidance of eye contact

  • Going red
  • Biting fingernails
  • Sweating a lot
  • Excessive hand gestures

Thuật ngữ:

1. Jump to conclusions: quyết định một các nhanh chóng. Đồng nghĩa: leap to conclusions.

2. gesture  /ˈdʒɛstʃə/:  điệu bộ, cử chỉ

3.misinterpret sth /mɪsɪnˈtəːprɪt/: hiểu sai

5.observe sth  /əbˈzəːv/ quan sát. Adj observant  /əbˈzəːv(ə)nt/ N observation
