How many English words gotta be mastered for a foreign learner?
How many words are needed to really speak a English language?
And how many English words does a foreigner have to know?
How many words does a learner study per day?
Are there strategies available to enable foreign students to learn these words more?

Re: How many English words gotta be mastered for a foreign learner?
Welcome to the forums.
There are different views on this - particularly as verbs are conjugated, so do you count a verb as one word or more than one word.
However, between 600 and 1000 words is probably the minimum for reasonable fluency.
