The study found that (i) numbers of tokens and types and D value in writings increa1sed as the proficiency developed. (ii) nouns took the lead of lexical diversity increasement in both writing and speaking; however, verbs showed the diversity increasement at intermediate level writing and advanced level speaking. (iii) D value showed no big difference in both writing and speaking at high-beginner level.
