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

10,000 words is completly ok. Last time i read, french teachers know 30,000 words ^^.

Great! Thank you. How many roughly can I expect to learn in the French module? 1500??

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.
