Abstract: This study investigated the relationships among different dimensions of vocabulary knowledge (passive, controlled active and free active vocabulary knowledge) and how they affect EFL learners' writing quality. Participants were a whole class of web-based English learners (N = 31) of tertiary level in the Chinese mainland. The results show that free active (above 2000) vocabulary knowledge has a much stronger correlation with controlled active than passive vocabulary knowledge, and writing quality has a stronger correlation with free active vocabulary knowledge than with the other two dimensions of vocabulary knowledge.
