How many words do you know?

The simplest measure of anyone’s competence in a language is the number of words they know, in my view. That is why we place such emphasis on this number at LingQ. Here is an interesting article which points out that in English an educated person knows 75,000 words. Apparently many kids start school word poor and never catch up. Perhaps they should join LingQ.
