wow this question was wondering in my mind too.

earlier in school i have read 8 essential amino acid (matt-vil-phyl) and 2 semi-esssential amino acid(arginine & histidine)

then in biochem i think read 9 EAA. (I never saw the word semi-essential again)
then i dont remember,it is park where i read it as 10.
yet not encountered 11.
