This paper compares the Globish word list with those commonly used in Japan in order to evaluate the difficulty level of the Basic 1500 Globish Words. Vocabulary lists used in this study as criteria are the Hokkaido University English Vocabulary List, the JACET List of 8000 Basic Words, and the
Standard Vocabulary List 12000. The results show that the Globish word list is better suited for out-put than input simply because its vocabulary is too limited for natural input from native speakers of English. It seems that native English speakers need to adjust their vocabulary use in order to get one step closer to non-native speakers when communicating in Globish.
