Because the size matters

Most language tests agree: a B2 test requires you know between 4,000 and 5,000 terms to understand what is on the test. A C1 test between 6000 and 9000. What most people think of as “good” speakers of a foreign language, based on anecdotal evidence I have read over time, have an average vocabulary in their L2 of about 8,000 to 10,000 words, which is still half to 1/3 of native speakers. I would assume a C2 test would require at least 15,000 words to get through without major challenges. Let’s remember even natives have problems passing such tests.”
