Word of the Week

immediately (adverb)

Meaning – at once and instantly.

Example of using it in a sentence: “I rang immediately for an ambulance.

Spelling Tip – both the prefix and the root word are from Latin. The prefix ‘im’ meaning ‘not’ and the root ‘mediate’ meaning ‘intervening,’ being in the middle’ or even ‘preventing’ and the suffix ‘ly’ meaning ‘like’. So, we form the word “not preventing something happening like right now.”

im + med + i + ate + ly

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.
