Have you ever wondered how many words you know in the languages you speak? There are quick tests you can take online and check it out.
The good news is: to be completely fluent and functional in a language you don’t need the imposing 20-30 thousand words a native speaker usually understands. I use English on a daily basis to communicate with the Chatterbug team and yet according to this test, I “only” know a little over 8k words!
