This is a small note about an interesting online service that allows you to estimate the size of your vocabulary of English words. Here’s the link: http://testyourvocab.com/.
The first part was very easy at the beginning, but then I ticked only one word in the last column. About the same pattern was with the second part. Words at the end were unknown to me.
Okay, here’s what I’ve got: “Your total vocabulary size is estimated to be: 8,560 words” (http://testyourvocab.com/?r=2014082). Not that bad, as for me. Of course, one thing is to know at least one definition of the words in your vocab, and a completely different one is to remember the appropriate English word at the moment of talking about something.
What’s your result?
