C. K. Ogden’s Basic English Vocabulary

The Rapid Russian vocabulary program makes extensive use of the C.K. Ogden Basic English Vocabulary. The words in this vocabulary are frequently used and useful words. Ogden was a linguist who devised a language of only 850 words adequate to say everything necessary for everyday purposes. Ogden said that it would take seven years to learn English, but only seven weeks for Basic English. The Basic English vocabulary is excellent for students who want a useful vocabulary in a very short time. The Russian equivalents to the majority of the words in ‘Basic English’ are included in this vocabulary program, which makes it of immense value to you, especially when combined with the other rapid learning methods.

As a proof of the idea that this vocabulary was sufficient for ordinary communication, the Bible was translated into ‘Basic English’, with only an additional short list of specialized words! If the Bible can be translated with only a few hundred words, then that is ample enough for ordinary conversation. What that means for you, is that you can have a functioning vocabulary with a minimum of effort and wasted time.

In this vocabulary are approximately 1,000 words. Including: The Alphabet, Pronunciation, The 100 most common words, Animals, Colors, Days & Months, Numbers, The Body, Persons, Time, Food, School, Weather, Clothing, The Home, etc. The methods used will help you to learn and to remember words quickly.
