Test for measuring vocabulary size
« on: May 03, 2016, 06:58:41 AM »
If you are curious about how much English vocabulary your students know and/or if your student asks you how many words they know, you may find the following website helpful: http://my.vocabularysize.com/ (VocabularySize.com)
This website provides a test that measures your vocabulary size. All you need to do is choose your native language and answer 140 multiple choice questions (note: choices including “I don’t know” for each question are given in your native language). After you finish all the questions, it will tell you the estimated number of word families that you know. This test can be implemented at the beginning and end of courses such as an extensive reading course or vocabulary building course in order to see how much students’ vocabulary has grown during the course.
