316

So I’ve found a list of the 100 most frequent Spanish words. How could I use that?

Well, I could check and see which ones I recognize. I could count them. I could keep track over time and measure my ‘progress’. I could expand that list to 1000 or 5000. Would that help?

I’m more inclined to look out for those words in actual sentences ‘lifted’ from authentic texts. That’d be cool. I could collect instances where the form of the word varied. I could keep an eye out for different patterns.


Basically, I’d play around and do something, anything.
