How many times do you need to say a word for it to be part of your vocabulary?
The average person needs to hear something twenty times before they truly learn it. To make a word part of your vocabulary, you should use it as often as you can - look for ways to use it in conversations, write it down, look for it on a sign or listen for it in conversations around you. You don't have to actually count how many times you have used it, because then you are thinking about the number and not the word!

well, I heard it is about 5000 words! 5000 may be the number of words a typical person uses. When it comes to vocabulary, it is important to distinguish between the words s…omeone understands, and the words they actually use. An average adult with English as a first language understands between 50,000 and 250,000 words. Some people with very large vocabularies, such as Winston Churchill, have been estimated to understand up to 400,000 words. Most people actually use about 10% of the words they understand. So a person who understands 50,000 words probably uses about 5,000. Shakespeare used about 29,000 words in his plays & sonnets, so we might estimate that he had a vocabulary of 290,000 words. Note: There are at least 475,000 words in the English language, with some estimates as high as 1,000,000. And there are thousands added every year (Twitter, anyone?). So, there's lots to learn.

It all depends on how you count them. He uses close to 30,000 in the plays alone, including proper names. There were probably a lot more that he understood but didn't use (wha…t is known as "passive vocabulary").
Swahili is Bantu language, and most of its vocabulary is based on words from various Bantu languages. Like English, it readily borrows words from other languages. A high perce…ntage, though much less than 50 per cent, of Swahili words have Arabic origins. But the language most rapidly mined for new words these days is English. Some French words have entered the eastern Congo dialect of Swahili, Kingwana.
