Allegedly one can get by with Basic English (either 850 or about 2000 words depending on the source) but I believe several thousand is more realistic. One of the useful things about English is that while it is awfully difficult to master, it is very easy to grasp enough to make yourself understood; one of the reasons English has become so ubiquitous.
