Asked in Learning a New Language
How many words do you need to know to be considered fluent in a language?
It is not how many words you know that makes you fluent in a language. Fluency is your command of the language (reading writing listening and speaking) , whether you can handle complex structures in the language without inaccuracies and misunderstanding. This would require the knowledge of around 3,000 words

How many words should you know in French in order to be sufficiently fluent?
Knowing a few dozen French words is enough to ask your way and understand the directions. To get a correct understanding of everyday topics and be able to have a satisfying conversation, about four to five hundred French words would be quite enough. A sizeable part of the French population uses about 600 vocabulary words and fit perfectly in the French society.

What does fluent in spanish mean?
Being fluent (in any language) means that you can speak enough the language to be able to communicate effectively with the native speakers. Contrary to many believes, it does NOT mean that you have to be able to speak to them 100% of the time, because no matter where you go, every country and regions have their dialects and regional words that one is not going to understand. As long as you can understand and communicate with a Spanish person about 95% of the time, I would say you are fluent in the language.

Does WikiAnswers pick up on foreign swear words?
The main WikiAnswers website (wiki.answers.com) is an English website, therefore does not pick up on foreign swear words. However, if you are found adding such words to any answers, you will have your account terminated - we have several fluent speakers of many languages that will not hesitate to block your account.
Asked in Public Speaking, English Language
Who many English vocabulary you should memorise to be fluent speaker's?
Anything that could possibly come up in conversation. However, that's a pain to do, and it's easier to just expose yourself to massive quantities of English--movies, newspapers, books, music...--and then learn to figure out words based on context. Given that English is one of wordiest (yes, that is a word) languages on Earth, you'd be memorizing a lot of words to become fluent. It is calculated that the average English speaker uses about 2000 - 4000 words in ordinary conversation.
