I passed once again - 7, 230
Words were a bit different

The method is not 100% accurate rolleyes.gif The authors quote the traditional 95% confidence level to be within ±10.33%. But of course it's possible that an individual result deviates more.

I did it again 8 540

Well, if one assumes that the first result was a bit lower due to lack of attention and concentration and then takes the average of the 2nd and 3rd one gets 7885 ± 815. So those two results are well within the specified range flowers1.gif

Well, if go to http://testyourvocab.com/faq.php one can find there:
However, based on our own limited initial testing, we can give you a vague idea of foreign language acquisition for Brazilians enrolled in private English courses (generally meeting for around 3 hours a week):
1,500–3,000 words: a couple of years of English courses
4,000–6,000 words: intermediate English (4–6 years)
8,000–10,000 words: advanced English (8 years) for a particularly good student

Anything much beyond 10,000 words generally only comes from living abroad in an English-speaking country for a significant period of time, or else spending tremendous amounts of one's own time exposed to English media (books, sitcoms, movies, etc.).
But if you think that the result is not correct you could try to redo the test, this time being more precise in your answers! shuffle.gif

The idea behind the calculation is described here: http://testyourvocab.com/details.php. And it's a bit longish biggrin2.gif biggrin2.gif I would single out this paragraph:
QUOTE(How does it work?)
So what we do is to test vocabulary in two steps. In the first, we pick around 40 words, stretching from the easiest to hardest words in English. This gives us a general idea of your vocabulary level. We then present a second narrower set of words, sorted by frequency, in a range where we think you'll know all the initial ones, none of the final ones, but have a wide mix of both in the middle. By testing you in this narrower range, we can come up with a quite accurate vocabulary estimate for people of any level.

totally agree with you, I'm not native but my TOEFL is 107 (passed in June) and i don't think that the result is correct, but still it's a sigh to work on my English harder*)

p.s. even being native russian speaker I've some doubts that I would recognize and give at least one definition of the most rarely used russian words or of the hardest one *) biggrin2.gif

loads of french words and science vocabulary helped to bring my score up to 15'200 fegh.gif

Wow! All that just with French? thumbsup.gif Though Michel Thomas says that over 60% of English vocabulary comes from French. For me it worked vice versa - knowing some English I was able to reach some level at French quite fast angel_innocent.gif
Now trying to work the other 40% out for German brows.gif

Btw, wikipedia has a different with Michel Thomas opinion (link):

yeah, the chart looks fine to me. There are a lot of french words in english, though... there are false similarities as well (example: bless you - господь с тобой angel_innocent.gif , blesse-moi - порань меня =.gif )

It bothers. When I need to explain something in English I begin to speak French.

you know I have such a problem too, especially when I had my english and french in a row, pronunciation became worse and sounded like ''frenchy'' sometimes *) moreover once i put an adjective just right after the noun, after that case I divided my lessons *)) biggrin2.gif
