If you want to learn 1000 of the most common English words according to Google’s search engines, then here’s your list!
There is a wide variety of such lists, claiming to be the most important or most common English words, so it is hard to tell exactly which one is the best. But as a native speaker with a certificate in teaching English as a foreign language, I agree that the below list seems pretty reasonable to me.
We pulled this from GitHub, which in turn pulled it from…whatever methods they used to get this data from Google! Some of the words were actually only letters, and not complete words, because this information is based on searched terms and sometimes people only search based on a first letter! So I went through a removed those…
If a word is in all capital letters, it is an abbreviation, like CD (compact disk). If it begins with a capital letter, it is either the name of a month (March), a person (David), a company (Sony), or a place (Europe). I thought about taking those out, but decided to go ahead and leave them in, because again this isn’t a list of most common words, but rather most common words according to Google, meaning the most common words people search for using Google’s search engine. Make sense?
Most likely, if you can understand these paragraphs, then you already know most of the below words…but just in case you don’t, happy studying!
