1000 Most Common Words In English

1000 Most Common Words In English

April 15, 2024

Building your vocabulary with the most common words used in English is an ideal start for your journey in learning the language. These common words expand the English vocabulary you know and help you with your conversation skills.

If you know 1000 words, you will be somewhere between a functional beginner and conversational level in English. In most languages, knowing 500 words will get you through usual tourist situations and everyday introductions.

Start building your vocabulary with the most common words.

Using the most common words is the most convenient way to learn English. The more you hear these words, the better you can use and understand them.
And the more you use them, the stronger your language skills become. So it's the best process of learning from others and, at the same time, learning from yourself too!


Why do you need to build a strong vocabulary?

Before we look at the list of the most commonly used words in the language, let's quickly go through why you need to build your vocabulary. While thoughts can form our words, words can also definitely form our thoughts. So, building a good set of words inside your vocabulary allows you to enhance your thinking strategies. English is a dynamic and outstanding language; you'll never forget all the beautiful things you can learn and re-learn from it by simply constantly supplementing your English words.

And speaking of supplementing, think of your vocabulary as a vitamin for your entire English knowledge. The more words you know, the healthier your English knowledge and skills will be.
While learning common words in English is a great start, it will also inspire you to the next level up on the words you know. Before you know it, you'll be conversant and well-informed in more advanced English vocabulary.

Here’s the list of the 1000 most common English words with examples of use.

Remember that with these 1000 words, you'll be able to ask people how they're doing, tell them about your day and talk about everyday life situations like shopping and public transit. But also remember that native-like fluency, among many other things, requires a dictionary of about 10,000 words.
