The Vash How many Japanese words should I learn in a month?

So I've been practice a little bit more Japanese thanks to the lessons on this site, but how many words should I memorize in a month's time? There's a lot of words so I don't know if like 200 words is enough or something? After a few lessons I managed to learn probably around 90 words or so and it only took about 2 weeks. What u guys think?

I dunno but I guess the more you can remember, the better? I think if you try to memorize too many words, you'll just start forgetting them if you don't practice them.

This is a great question and NambaOne is on the right track. Simply studying many words will not make you better at Japanese. Rather, focus on what you know and gradually improve your vocabulary with everyday practice. [br][br]You can learn perhaps 100 new words per day, but how many of those words will you remember a week or two later? Those words really do stack up and you'll have to quiz yourself daily so you don't forget them. In my opinion, I think that if you learn 5-10 new words per day with daily review, you'll be in the right direction. Those words can easily come from your 5 kanji per day if you're really dedicated. However, don't over exert yourself to learning too many words as it can be very daunting! Most importantly, practicing not only by flash cards but with others learning Japanese is crucial to your success in mastering the Japanese language![br][br]But how many words do you need to learn? Well, that depends on how far you want to get in Japanese. Apparently, men use about 13,000 words per day, and women use about 20,000. In an entire year, you would have to learn 54.8 words per day to match the vocabulary of the average woman. Obviously, learning Japanese isn't something that you do in weeks, months or even in a year (unlike what some companies claim). If you take your time, you'll learn enough words in 4 years to speak Japanese fluently. Most who immerse themselves in Japan only take 2-years! I know it only took me 2 years to learn English by moving to the US.[br][br]Moral of the story is that you shouldn't be so fixated with vocabulary. Most of what you'll learn will not be from strict memorization but through conversations and immersion. "Oh that must mean this..." will happen a lot while you're watching a dorama, or listening to jpop. I hope this explanation helps and didn't deter you from learning Japanese! The more you learn, the faster you'll learn new stuff =)[br]

@Mark what an insightful response! I too believe that learning a language isn't something that you should rush with continuous memorization[br]

I may not be very good at Japanese right now, but I am learning a lot of new words with kanji!

[quote=Aina]Mark, should I learn a bunch of adjectives and nouns while studying jplearn? [/quote][br][br]JPLearn! sets its own pace but you're free to learn whatever you like in conjunction. JPLearn! isn't perfect and it's only its first revision so I would say do what you need to do if you feel it's necessary and let us know what you did differently so we can consider it for future revisions :)[br][br]As long as you keep practicing daily, you'll do well in your studies! In Berkeley they tend to make you learn a few dozen new words every week if that helps with perspective.[br]

Ah, thanks for letting me know. I had no idea. Guess I'll take it as I can learn it and keep practicing. I guess after knowing how the language works I can start memorizing a bunch of words and stuff ⊂( ̄(工) ̄)⊃
