Word of the Week
Meaning – something that moves from one place to another. It has become more to mean a person who moves to live permanently in a foreign country
Example of using it in a sentence: “When we move from the UK to live in Australia we become an immigrant.”
Spelling Tip – all parts of this word are from Latin. The prefix ‘im’ meaning ‘not’ and the root ‘migrate’ meaning ‘a seasonal circular journey for survival,’ and the suffix ‘ant’ meaning ‘one that carries out the root word’. So, we form the word “someone not returning on the homeward journey.”
im + mi + gr + ant
Use the word as many times throughout the week as you can. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
