LEARNING METHODOLOGY

Not all words are created equal. The purpose of a frequency dictionary is to list the most common words in a language in descending order. By focussing only on the important and most often used words, you can learn a language as fast and effciently as possible. First, we would like to illustrate the value of a frequency dictionary. For the purpose of example, we have combined frequency data from various languages (mainly Romance, Slavic and Germanic languages) and made it into a single chart. The sweet spots, according to the data seem to be:

Amount words


Above data corresponds with Pareto´s law.
Pareto’s law, also known as the 80/20 rule, states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. In language learning, this principle seems to be on steroids. It seems that just 20% of the 20% (95/5) of the most used words in a language account for roughly all the vocabulary you need.
To put this further in perspective: The Collins Spanish Dictionary (August 2016 edition) lists over 310.000 words in current use, while you will only need to know 1.62% (5000 words) to achieve 95% and 89% fluency in speaking and writing. Knowing the most common 10.000 words, or just 3.25%, will net you 98% fluency in spoken language and 95% fluency in written texts.
Keeping this in mind, the value of a frequency dictionary is immense. Study the most frequent words, build your vocabulary and progress quickly. One more frequency asked question needs to be answered.

Vocabulary needed for fluency

Well, how many words do you need to know for varying levels of fluency? While it’s important to note that it is impossible to pin down these numbers and statistics with 100% accuracy, these are a global average of multiple sources. According to research, this is the amount of vocabulary needed for varying levels of fluency:

250 words: the essential core of a language. Without these words, you cannot construct any meaningful sentences.
750 words: are used every single day by every person who speaks the language.
2500 words: should enable you to express everything you could possibly want to say, although some creativity might be required.
5000 words: the active vocabulary of native speakers without higher education.
10,000 words: the active vocabulary of native speakers with higher education.
20,000 words: the amount you need to be able to recognize passively to read, understand, and enjoy a work of literature such as a novel by a notable author.
