What are the most important topics for studying when learning a language?

a year ago

Hi, I was wondering what are the most important topics you must study when learning a new language?

Pareto's principle states that 20% of our efforts produces 80% of our results. So 20% of vocabulary is more frequently used when speaking a language. Knowing this leads me to wonder what are the topics I should focus on.
I made my own 7 points list, I'm studying them while learning French. PLEASE SHARE YOURS.

1- Pronouns in all forms
2- Most common verbs
3- Most common nouns
4- Question words
5- Connectors
6- Greetings & farewells
7- Structure & words used for building questions, negations & affirmations (including auxiliaries)
