Why Study By Frequency?

While it's important to note it's 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 sentences.

- 750 words: the words that are used every single day by every person who speaks the language.

- 2500 words: these 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. You will understand 95% of all written texts.

- 10,000 words: the active vocabulary of native speakers with higher education.

- 20,000 words: the amount you need to recognize passively in order to read, understand, and enjoy a work of literature such as a novel by a notable author.

Keeping above facts in mind, the value of a frequency dictionary is immense. At least, that is if you want to become fluent in a language fast. Study the most frequent words, build your vocabulary and progress naturally.
