Research has shown that the 2.500 most commonly used Portuguese words represent 92% of the total spoken language and 82% of all written Portuguese texts.
This is quite remarkable. Out of the 300.000 Portuguese words in current use, you only need to know the top 2.500 to be fluent enough to go about your daily life.
The secret to becoming fluent quickly is by learning the most commonly used Portuguese words first.
And everybody can do it. If you learn only ten words a day, you will reach 2500 words in 8 months. That is enough vocabulary to be considered fluent!
