I find that SRS (spaced repetition systems) are very effective. There's a course on Memrise of the top 5000 French words.

Going through the first 2000-2500 words, I'm sure one could easily pick up 30-60 new words daily with a fair retention rate, depending on how much time they spend.

Thanks for this. It should help me. I know about 2,000 words, but I still struggle with listening, so I think I need to get to around 5,000 before I feel comfortable with the language.

Thanks

Im still in the early stages, but have you tried listening to podcasts on iTunes? They're free and actually rather good.

Thanks. Not got iTunes, but I have heard of other audio lessons on the web. I will find them. Duolingo will help, but think I need more after finishing my tree and still being very weak on listening. I actually find slow songs easier. I get lost when people speak quickly!

I made mp3s using tts that go along with this 5000 word file and put them on brother's website for free. http://murfrosoft.com/james
