Hi Sir, I am non native English Speaker. I have to know that how much words a common non native speaker guy can save in a memory to easily communicate.

Hello Imran 26, I'm afraid there's no clear answer to this as it depends on what the person needs to communicate, with whom and in what circumstances. For very simple communication a very basic range of words and phrases is all that is needed. For more nuanced expression you need a broader range. If style and giving a good impression is important then a broader range still is necessary. ~ Peter The LearnEnglish Team

Learning English requires a wealth of vocabulary. Because the richness of the vocabulary is easier to talk about.

I can browse while listening to music. I can hear gossips with half an ear. I can drive while singing loudly! *ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭*

I can do many of these action at the same time such as looking and listening , speaking and reading.breathing is the most action i do automatically every day .
Hello Hamdy Ali, This depends on the context. In British English, 'take a trip' is the normal collocation. In US English, 'take' is also more common. However, you can say 'make a trip' when you want to emphasise the planning or intention rather than the actual trip itself. ~ Peter The LearnEnglish Team
