The English Vocabulary consists of three key components to remember: more than a million total words, about 170,000 words in current use and three times as many meanings, and 20,000-30,000 words used by each individual person.
Most English teachers will tell you that mastering the 3000 most common words in English will give you 90 to 95% comprehension of English newspapers, books, movies, and conversations. In addition, with that size of a vocabulary, you’ll easily be able to learn from context to expand your vocabulary as you go. The important thing is choosing the right words to learn so you gain comprehension quickly and don’t waste time.
