Top 2000 Most Frequent French Words Found in Subtitles

One thing that a lot of people don’t know (but are happy to find out) is that learning a language is very front heavy, at least in terms of vocabulary. This means that although there are hundreds of thousands of words in any given language learning the most common 2,000 or so will put you in a position where you can say and understand the vast majority of everything.

According to opensubtitles.org, below is a list of the 2,000 most common French subtitles based on their appearances in subtitles. Learning just this list will skyrocket your French comprehension. You can download this list at http://www.101languages.net/common-words/ or at https://invokeit.wordpress.com/frequency-word-lists/.

Please note that this list is made from free subtitles and contains some discrepancies. Please don’t take this list as definitive or exhaustive, but rather a guide. The translations are provided by Google Translate. You’ll see everything from proper nouns to just letters. This should just be a guide to show you some of the things you might come across if you watch a French movie with subtitles.
