Re: learning English
Well, you can "get by" with a vocabulary of about 1,000 words. My guess is that you have already gone past that stage.

Which of the words in my sentences would you say should go on the list of basic vocabulary?
It depends. A good start is the vocabulary you will need to learn. Classroom words, if you're studying in a school or college, inclduing useful phrases and questions that you might want to use, like 'How do you spell...'. Basic phrases to be polite and move around if you are living there, like 'excuse me' can be helpful.
Think of what you are interested in and learn words related. there's little point in learning hundreds of words related to football if you don't like it. Learn about what interests you and it will be more useful.

If you want to work in a call centre that deals with British clients, then it is important to practice listening to a variety of accents, many of which will sound very different from standard English. You also need to make sure that your pronunciation is comprehensible to British speakers- there have been comments from people here that they have trouble understanding certain sounds and letter, when spelling things over the phone.
