Students Levels acc to amount of vocab
 
Guys,
 
I think I need your help.
 
I tried googling but probably I m not googling the right way...
 
I would like to find something about the students levels according to the amount of vocabulary they know, for instance Beginner 1000 words, Elementary 2000 words, and so on.
 
I ll keep looking, meanwhile do you happen to know of anything like this, please?
 
Thanks!

I think that graded readers usually have this information on the covers.

Yes, dawnmain, you re right Penguin Readers and MacMillan readers have this classification.
Here s one copied from the back of a penguin Reader:
EASYSTARTS 200 HEADWORDS
LEVEL 1 300 HEADWORDS BEGINNER
LEVEL 2 600 HEADWORDS ELEMENTARY
LEVEL 3 1200 HEADWORDS PRE-INTERMEDIATE
LEVEL 4 1700 HEADWORDS INTERMEDIATE
 
Hope it helps, have to go. Bye

Thank you!
 
A headword is not the same as any other word? A pronoun for instance or words like "is" or "the" would not be considered headwords?
 
Thanks again!

I guess headwords are key words or topic words, such as colours, verbs, numbers, etc.
