Expanding on the Dolch list, Dr. Edward B. Fry in 1996 created a new list of high frequency words (“Fry Words”). These are the most common words used in English ranked by order of frequency.
Dr. Fry found that 25 words make up 1/3 of all words published, 100 make up ½ of all words published and 300 make up 65% of all written material. These high frequency words should be recognized instantly by young readers.
These are helpful for adults learning English as a second language as well as for children.
This app has 500 words divided into five levels and then divided into groups of twenty-five, based on frequency of use and difficulty in a flash card setting.
• The first 500 Fry Words
• Cards can be marked to the Review list (use the star to mark and menu to clear list)
• The card is read out when the card is touched
• Long press buttons to jump to start or end
