Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day has its origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, held in mid-February to celebrate the coming of spring. In the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I replaced Lupercalia with St. Valentine’s Day, and it came to be celebrated as a day of romance from about the 14th century. 

Nowadays, Valentine’s Day is a romantic holiday in many countries around the world. To mark this special occasion, we’d like to share some advanced vocabulary to help you talk about love & relationships.

Remember, most of these expressions are idiomatic and fairly informal, so don’t use them in your Academic Writing.

But you can drop them into the Speaking Test or an IELTS GT Informal Letter to impress the examiner and boost your score for Lexical Resource!
