Vocabulary

I’ve started to write down the whole list of words that I’ve been learning, mostly because I couldn’t find any lists like this when I tried to find which words to start learning. I have checked some words from a dictionary, from books or asking B about the spelling. If any words are translated wrong or misspelled, please inform me about it, thanks!
