Next to each word you will see a letter and number (A2, B1, B2, C1 or C2). This means that this word should be familiar to a learner at that CEFR level. For example, in the list above a learner at C2 level should know all these words; a learner at B1 level would probably only know the first seven words on the list.

Having problems with the definition or pronunciation? Need some example sentences? You can look the words up at:

To save you time, we have prepared some activities that you can use with these words relating to the internet. You can find them at Vocabulary activities – internet words. For more activities, hints and tips on how to create your own, take a look at Quick vocabulary activities. Is there a wordlist that you need? Tell us and we’ll include it.
