Here are a couple of tests you can take to calculate an estimate of your vocab size.

Test 1
Test 2
Test 3

Here's how much an average native Japanese speaker knows:

Elementary School Level: 5,000-20,000 words
Junior High Level: 20,000-40,000 words
Senior High Level: 40,000-45,000 words
College Level: 45,000-50,000 words


Good luck!😌

Do these pages not work for anyone else? All the characters are gobbledy goop.

If the page does not load, try this:

* Internet Explorer

1. Go to "View," and then "Encoding"
2. Select "Japanese (Auto-Select)"

*Netscape or Firefox

1. Go to "View," and then "Character Encoding"
2. Select "Auto-Detect," and then "Japanese"
