Arsenio's ESL Podcast: Season 2 - Episode 17 - Vocabulary - Television

I’ve gone over some useful vocabulary in terms of talking about television (it’s possible that you could be asked a question in regards to watching television on your IELTS examination), and I’ve come across some very useful vocabulary and adjectives that relate to television writing.  So, let’s get into it!


Advertisement, cartoons, comedy shows, cooking programs, documentaries, drama, game shows, sports, the news.

Now, think of one or two examples of each program listed above.

Ex: Sports – Badminton, Futból, American football, etc


Adjectives describing TV programs

Awful, boring, cool, exciting, funny, informative, interesting, captivating (also means compelling, intriguing and interesting), popular, scary



Practice explaining your favorite TV shows with a friend.  

Ex: I like American football because it’s exciting to watch. 

Ex: I think dramas are boring because I don’t learn anything from them.
