Fluency

Hello,

How many words can you learn in French? I read that 10,000 words will allow you to be somewhat proficient in a language.

It depends your definition of a word, because in french we need to conjugate so that can create a lot of words. And Duolingo counts every conjugation as a word.

So according to this, I think it will teach you about 3500 words.
