dc.description.abstract This study analyses both lexical density and lexical diversity in the written production of two groups of first year students at the Universitat de València at the beginning a nd end of one-semester teaching period. These results were compared with those obtained by a thir d group of students aiming at level C2. Lexical density was tested using Textalyser (http://textalyser.net) and lexical frequency used the software RANGE (Nation and Heatly, 1994). Our results prove that the students from both groups at level B1 show the same progression between writing tasks 1 and 3. Furthermore, we can claim that it is possible to obtain a reliable measure of lexical richness which is stable across two pieces of writing produced by the same learners.
