    Gosh! There are way too many to write here, really! Even with the most common words, we would end up with a list of two or three pages. But to answer your question, that's easy: the most common words will ALWAYS be in even the smallest dictionaries. Words like all the articles ("der", "die", "das"), polite words: ("Hallo", "Tschüß!", "Danke!", "Bitte!"...), the family members ("Mutter", "Vater", "Bruder", "Schwester"...), auxiliary verbs and action verbs ("sein", "haben", müssen", "können", "essen", "trinken", "schlafen", "gehen", "spielen"...), common places ("Schule", "Park", "Arbeit"...), prepositions ("auf", "mit", "wegen", "von"...) etc... These are all very common German words, but this list isn't exhaustive.

    a million) "Der Bankkaufmann" potential "Banker" in English. 2) "Bankkaufmann von Beruf" potential "Banker by applying/of occupation". 3) "Aber in zwei Wochen zieht er um" potential "yet in 2 weeks he strikes" in English. Out of context "zieht" potential "pulls". "Zieht" is likewise the third guy or woman singular that's he/she/one in latest stressful. The infinitive is "ziehen" that's to pull or for this reason circulate dwelling house/place of dwelling. 4) "Dann hat er selbst eine Wohnung" potential "Then he has an place of dwelling" in English. "Selbst" has countless meanings. It particularly refers to "even" or "on my own" yet can be a pronoun, which incorporate "myself", "your self", "himself", "ourselves", etc. (So, "self"). actually, the full paragraph potential: "that's Michael (22), he's a banker by applying occupation. Now he lives along with his mothers and fathers. yet in 2 weeks he will circulate around. Then he will have an place of dwelling." 5) "Die Wohnung hat einen Hobbyraum?" potential "The place of dwelling has a activity room?" 6) A "Hobbyraum" or "activity room" is used for leisures and interests. 7) "Gästezimmer" potential "customer room" or "spare room", so in case you have a customer they'd use this room.
