- How are Oxford Graded Readers graded?
- Our Graded Readers are graded by core structures, vocabulary and book length. Core structures provide the easiest means to select an appropriate level because the structural content reflects the grammar syllabi of most English language coursebooks.
- What are headwords?
Words that form headings in a dictionary, under which their meaning is explained are called headwords.
The headword count refers to the number of headwords a student needs to know in order to read the text with relative ease. The number of headwords is controlled to provide a challenging but accessible read.
You can find the number of headwords for each level in a Reader series by checking the series page.
