4000Essential English Words

4000Essential English Words




About the Vocabulary
The 600 words in each book of this series along with the additional target words
presented in the appendices included in the first three books of the series are
the most useful words in English. They were found by analysis of a collection of
English course books from various levels in the primary, secondary and tertiary
school systems. The words included in this series were chosen because they
occurred many times in different levels of these materials. Because of the way
that they were chosen, these words have the following characteristics:
1 They are useful in both spoken and written English. No matter what English
course you are studying, the words in these books will be of value to you.
2 Each word in these books is a high-frequency word. This means that the effort
in learning the words is well repaid by the number of times learners have a
chance to encounter or use them.
3 These books as a whole cover a large proportion of the words in any spoken or
written text. They cover at least 80% of the words in newspapers and academic
texts, and at least 90% of the words in novels. They also cover at least 90% of
the words in conversation.
About the Books
The activities in these books are specially designed to make use of important
learning conditions. Firstly, the words are introduced using sentence definitions
and an example sentence. The activities that follow in the units encourage learners
to recall the meanings and forms of the words. Some activities also make the
learners think about the meaning of the words in the context of a sentence—a
sentence different from the sentences that occurred in the introduction of the words.
Moreover, each unit ends with a story containing the target words. While reading
the story, the learners have to recall the meanings of the words and suit them to the
context of the story. Such activities help learners develop a better understanding of
a common meaning for a given word which fits the different uses.
Illustrations for each target word are provided to help learners visualize the word
