Graded Vocabulary Lists

Here are the 1000 most commonly used* roots in Esperanto. I suggest starting at the top of this list and studying the groups, in order. It may sound impossible, but learning 500 roots per quarter is not unreasonable. (Remember, that includes the numbers, days of the week, etc. It's a piece of cake. :)

The vocabulary lists are currently broken up into 2 broad groups. I have a listing that breaks them into finer levels. As the groups are reorganized i'll be putting them up here for reference.

  1. Level 1 through 5 - 500 most commonly used roots
  2. Level 2
  3. Level 3
  4. Level 4
  5. Level 5
  6. Level 6 through 10 - the next most used 500 roots.
  7. Level 7
  8. Level 8
  9. Level 9
  10. Level 10

* These lists are a combination of the lists (although there is amazing overlap) from:
