how many english words should our foreigners master?
i am a chinese student .an english learner.
I suppose as many as you can. The ones for basic communication should be first. I wish you well.
English has hundreds of thousands of words, many are obsolete. Scientific words enter the language faster than obsolete ones die. I know a great many words, but surely not all. My guess: maybe 8,000 or 9,000 tops.
I think about 1000 words are more than sufficient, if you don't need words related to some specific field.
There are a lot to learn. It is better for you to keep learning and absorbing as much English as possible. Even native English people, they still have a lot to learn.
