English Vocabulary - [ Feelings ]



One of the main reasons students find it hard to write a good essay is because of their poor vocabulary. Many do not have a wide range of vocabulary with them and this has been a stumbling block for them to get good grades for their essays. Having a wide range of words or a vocabulary list is a boon for all those who aspire to write good essays in their public school exams, be it local or foreign students.

So, I have posted some words which are associated with feelings. You can use these words when writing your [story] type essay or the [ Descriptive ] type essays. All the best!
