Hello everyone! The IELTS vocabulary word I want to talk about today is ‘Threat.

Threat means that you intend to someone else harm. A threat is a promise to hurt someone in some way in the future.

Some of the most common collocations are threat of punishment, make a threat, pose a threat, deal with a threat, under threat, and a serious threat.

 Here is a video from our YouTube channel on the word ‘Threat.’

 

It’s a noun so having an adjective before it (serious threat) is very common. There is also an adjective form of it (a threatened species).

Here’s a quote that I really like the word ‘threat’: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” – Martin Luther King Jr.

 

Now it’s your turn! Put your answers in the comments.

Technology is developing at a rapid pace and becoming better than people at many tasks.

What are some of the biggest threats this brings to future generations?
