Abstract: 2002年,2003年の2年にわたり聖路加看護大学2年生の英語語嚢の大きさをNationのVocabulary Levels Testを 用いて測定した結果,約2,800語となった。日本の大学生の平均を上回るこの結果は本学の英語教育の教材や指導法の選択に役立つであろう。

Thrqugh tests on two groups of 30 and 32 sophomores with Vocabulary Levels Test developed by Nation, their vocabulary size was estimated to be around 2,800 family words. This size is close to the threshold level of 3,000 words, the number of words second language learners need to transfer their native reading strategies to reading comprehension in a foreign language. Therefore, authentic books may· be more preferable for them than abbreviated ones as a classroom textbook.
