Professor Bill VanPatten introduces his research into this in an informational yet accessible manner.

Essential Vocabulary for Proficiency
For many years I have been using the accompanying Table of Essential Vocabulary with adult students at the Institute of Modern Languages at the University of Queensland with the inkling that I was sitting on something special with this resource. It was inspiring to have my effort validated at a workshop presented by one of the gurus of TCI-TPRS in the United States, Laurie Clarcq, who produced a similar Table in English (and Spanish) which, when mastered, would ensure that students would pass the New York State Proficiency Examination in Spanish.
The following contribution has generously been provided by Bits of Bahasa. It is an Indonesian High Frequency Word List which provides a good mix of natural language used by native speakers everyday, and language that is essential in a school setting. The end results, should students acquire all 100 words, should be proficiency.
