Vocabulary points to take away:
Many acronyms refer to organisations. The acronyms come from the first letters of the
organisations’ full names. They are all always written in capital letters.
UNESCO is an acronym for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural
We pronounce acronyms in two different ways. Some are said as words:
UNESCO, NATO and NASA are all important organisations.
Others are said as letters:
The UN (U-N), the EU (E-U), and the FBI (F-B-I).
Using acronyms saves time and makes organisations seem more familiar to us. Many
acronyms are also used in everyday life:
I need to get some money at the ATM (Automatic Teller Machine).
