What if I told you you only need 400 words to survive in a language?
Every language knows a lot of words, but for most daily interactions we only use a fraction of them. When you start learning a language and focus on these basic words, phrases, and verbs you will see that 400 words can be enough to survive in a foreign language.
At the Foreign Language Collective, we have compiled a list of words and phrases that will cover most of the vocabulary used in daily interactions.
You can download this list, print it out and fill it in yourself by doing some research on the internet. You can also include the phonetics at the end of every word, so you know how to pronounce it.
You can download or and/or share it with your friends on social media.
Available in 10+ more languages, including regional and minority
