Top 1000 words in UK English The following are the 1000 most common wordforms in UK English, based on 29 works of literature by 18 authors (4.6 million words) and Rosengren's modified frequency, with case-equated matching. Words can include hyphen and apostrophe. abs is the absolute frequency (total number of occurrences); r is the range (number of texts in which the word occurs); mod is the modified frequency as defined by Rosengren (1972). Distribution of modified frequency: Omitted in compiling this list: John London England English George Tom. Absolute frequency is a notoriously noisy indicator of the commonness of a word; a particular word may occur a large number of times in total but in only a few texts. Rosengren's modified frequency of a word is defined as follows n KF = ( sum d_i * sqrt(x_i/d_i) ) ** 2 i=1 x_i is the number of occurrences in the ith text, and d_i is the (fractional) size of the text. The ratio mod/abs can be taken as a measure of the evenness of distribution of a word. and the most unevenly
BBC Learning English - Learning English 18 Resources for English Language Learners to Learn via Blogs Posted by Shelly Terrell on Saturday, March 20th 2010 Part of the Cool Sites series Perhaps your students are like mine and are not quite ready to make the leap to begin blogging. I work with very young language learners and adult language learners. Many of my adult learners will not put the effort into blogging but that doesn’t mean they will not try learning from a blog. This was how the first lesson plan went: We were learning about travel in America, therefore I had my students read Shonah Wraith’s post, Big, Bigger, BIGGEST.I asked students to leave comments on Shonah’s post.Shonah did a great job of responding to my student’s questions and comments. 2nd Phase: Video Tutorials In the first phase, my students became familiar with the process and realized the amount of learning they could receive through interacting with blogs.

The Island Weekly Comprehensible input Comprehensible input is language input that can be understood by listeners despite them not understanding all the words and structures in it. It is described as one level above that of the learners if it can only just be understood. According to Krashen's theory of language acquisition, giving learners this kind of input helps them acquire language naturally, rather than learn it consciously. Example The teacher selects a reading text for upper-intermediate level learners that is from a lower advanced level course book. In the classroom Trying to understand language slightly above their level encourages learners to use natural learning strategies such as guessing words from context and inferring meaning.
