Question for Spanish Tree Finishers

I am curious how many words do you know once you finish the tree. In the words tab it lists the number of words learned. How many do you have at the end. Thanks.

It depends on what you consider to be a "word".

The Spanish course has 1586 "words" on the Words tab. From what I've read in various threads, this count considers different conjugations to be the same word (with some exceptions).

That said, Selcen_Ozturk, a contributor for the Turkish course, posted a list of word counts from the incubator in this thread, which seems to count each verb form as a different "word". Her list had 2141 for Spanish.

thanks for the answer. i do notice that they count the conjugations of some words, which is not preferable. however i wanted an estiate to see how many words i need to learn on my own to get to that level where you know enough words to have a thorough conversation. like for english its like 3000 words that are most commonly used. and thats all you need to get by.

1586 Spanish words learned. Of course you know the usual caveats about that number.

Hi Whitt! I am not finished with the tree yet, but I know 700+ words if that helps. I am about halfway done.

I'm doing good. Trying to focus on only Spanish right now. It would be cool to practice some time :) If you would like to keep on talking, message me on my profile.
