Learning Spanish: how many "freebie" recognisable words for German speakers?

October 07 at 11:35

My native language is German. I am fluent in English and I had 3 years of French and Latin in high school. Long ago! I recently started Spanish and I recognise lots of words. No big surprise here really. However, with this background, I wonder how many known words I would likely get "for free" by language transfer and recognising conjugated forms on Lingq?

Alternative question: how many of the 5000 most common Spanish words would I recognise with a translator?
