Basic English Speaking 2: 101 to 200 Most Frequently Used Words

Basic English Speaking Part Two.  Go Here for Part One.

This came from my Youtube channel and my most popular video.  Beginning English students wanted some basic vocabulary practice, so I decided to do the top 500 words.  It's great for pronunciation and just getting a feel for the English language.

I got the words from, "The ESL Teacher's Book of Lists" by Jacqueline E. Kress.  You can buy the book at Amazon.
