FREQUENCY No.1 - TOEFL VOCABUALRY FREQUENCY TOEFL VOCABUALRY LinguaForum WHY DOES FREQUENCY MATTER ON THE IBT? "Wow, the reading is no joke!” This has been a common reaction among iBT TOEFL test takers since it first began in Sept 2005 The length of the reading passages has more than doubled from 280-350 words on the CBT to an average of 700 words on the new iBT The longer length of the passages has made them more difficult to grasp Test takers who are unused to reading about science often find the new iBT reading passages especially difficult The number of vocabulary questions given on the TOEFL has also increased drastically, and these questions now constitute approximately one third of all the questions on the reading section A typical passage contains vocabulary questions out of 13-14 questions in total Considering that the reading section contains or reading passages, test takers will have to answer 12-20 vocabulary questions on the new iBT That’s really no joke In scrutinizing all the real iBTs given thus far, LinguaForum Research Center has found something very interesting Similar topics and questions have appeared repeatedly on the real tests In other words, the passages and questions the test takers witnessed on the today’s test will possibly appear again on the next week’s test, next month’s test, or on a test some months later That repetition caused us to analyze the frequencies at which words have appeared on the real tests Using this analysis we have produced an innovative and ambitious book, Frequency #1 Vocabulary Setting priorities for iBT vocabulary building! Frequency #1 Vocabulary has completed the LinguaForum iBT Vocabulary Series: Basic, Intro, and Frequency The 2,000 words in this book are the ones that have most frequently appeared on the real test We divide the words into two parts: top and second frequency, each part containing 1,000 words Each section is then further subdivided into 20 chapters of 50 words each according to the frequency in which they appear on the test Thus, students first learn the words they are most likely to see on the iBT and learn words that appear less frequently in later chapters' By prioritizing vocabulary for the students, LinguaForum makes vocabulary building more streamlined and efficient, increasing the potential of test takers worldwide Lingua Forum Research Center Vocabulary Project Team Top Frequency
