A member on the LingQ forum recently asked an interesting question:
What level will you be at when you know 10,000 words?
It’s not an easy question to answer for several reasons, the most basic of which is how well you know those 10,000 words. But even 10,000 passive words means a lot when it comes to understanding what’s going on around you.
What has your experience been? Have you learned 10,000 words in a language? How many words do you need to be considered fluent?
