How many words are there in the Russian course?

2996, according to my account

Hi @Robert

Currently the course has 2978 words, but I'm working towards reaching 5000. So there are more words to come soon :)

Happy learning with Lingvist!

Hello Sabina,

first of all thanks for contributing to this wonderful project :)

Here is a discussion about the meaning of "word count".
5000 "Lemmas" or "Words"?

What do you as a russian linguist think about that? How many unique words do we really learn in the russian course? And how do languages like English (no cases) compare to Russian (six cases)? Do learners of English have a better understanding of a random text, if they know 5000 words than a learner of the Russian language?

Kind regards
