Learning a language is never an easy task. However, it’s not nearly as hard as we all make it out to be. Learning the 1,000 most common words in Spanish is a reasonable goal to push yourself toward learning Spanish. Focus your efforts on these top 1000 words first, which are the most frequently used words and will give you 87% of spoken communication.
Therefore, implement what we call linguistic economy. It is better to learn the verbs for “I want” or “I have to” than words such as “rhino” or “otorhinolaryngologist”. Studies show that we tend to use the same words or phrases even if there are better words or phrases than them. So you should focus on the words that are going to give you the best return on time invested.
