The idea of this resource is to make a teachers' guide for vocabulary learning. This main page explains the approach from the point of view of teachers and material writers. It has sub-pages which serve as an organising principle for lesson materials at the four levels, and students of English as a foreign or second language can go directly to these.
Do you know that if you take a piece of English text, the word "the" will be the one that repeats most often? In fact on average it will appear about once in every 16 words anybody writes or speaks.
If you would like to know more about this idea a good explanation is given here:
