Site I found that tests your English vocabulary. Native speakers average around 20,000-35,000, people who have it as a secondary language seem to average at 2,500-9,000.

I went at 24,200. I need to read more novels.

I did this and got 23,200 words, which I find a bit surprising, but at the same time for some odd reason I feel kinda good and proud about that. A nice test, and anything that caresses my ego is good in my books.

And here's the link for my result, if anyone wants to be sure I didn't tell a lie: http://testyourvocab.com/result?user=4140892

This seems a bit random at best. Just a list of randomized words that leave everything up to chance. I got a 19000, but it really just seemed like a crapshoot :-\

Seems to figure things out by each word being part of a different difficulty of vocabulary, then calculates things out by how much people know based on the number of more difficult words they picked.

22,000. I knew I didn't have a robust vocabulary, but I'm still disappointed in myself.

I apparently know about 26,200 words. I agree with Shiz, though, in that it seems to be a random conglomerate of words with no real reason for their being chosen.

33,300. I was expecting a lot lower, TBH, but I've been getting into reading more lately, so that may have something to do with it.

I got 23,000.

Disappointing results but I at least learned a few new words as a result.
