Top 1000 most common words in English! (In order).

Top 1000 most common words in English! (In order)


Ok guys and gals. This is the essential, the basics of the English language. Here I have listed the 1000 most common words in English collected from billions of entries online in order to figure out which words tend to be more common. This doesn’t mean that if you know all these words you can speak as well as a Native Speaker, as Native English Speakers of 25 years of age and above, will have a vocabulary that will range between 15.000 and 35.000 words. So as I said before, these are the basic ones.

If you are preparing for an English Standardized Test, then you better make sure that you know 100% of the words below. Not knowing some, may mean that you may be looking for a more modest score in the test, which is fine, depending on your needs and requirements. Check out our post about the CEFR for more details.

Now without further adieu, here I present the 1000 most common words in the English language.
