 * 이 수능 영단어는 EBS영문법, EBS외국어영역 200제, EBS외국어영역 10주완성, EBS외국어영역 총정리를 바탕으로 정리한 수능 대비 영단어 입니다. 비교적 쉬운 단어, 낯선 단어가 보일 수도 있습니다. 지금 과외수업으로 수능준비를 하고 있는 제 학생들 위주로 단어를 정리합니다. 또, 수업내용으로 활용하기 때문에 무례하지만, 해석은 해두지 않았습니다. 스스로 해석해보시고, 질문이 있으시면 언제든지 질문 주세요. 환영하겠습니다. EBS 반영률에 대한 회의적인 시각도 있지만, 지문 내용, 어휘 등 전 EBS의 반영률을 높게 보고 있습니다.
