Top 2000 French Words
Would be nice to have these integrated into Duolingo fully. Both the words and sentences showing their usage. These are said to cover over 90% of French, and with the sentences, we should get another few percent.
The Duolingo learning technique is great, and I think it would really make learning those words much easier.
This is a useful idea for all languages being learned. Most languages are spoken with a core of 2000 to 4000 words. If one can learn 7 words a day or conservatively 4 a day, one can reach a good level after 18 months.
