Is it a right thing to start learning words from a vocabulary book and collect more examples& start memorizing

Hi guys
I have a question and I want you language learners to answer it

Please share any ideas

Is it a right thing to start learning words from a vocabulary book and collect more examples from some dictionaries like Longman and Oxford and start memorizing them. ?
Is it going to help me to speak like an American .

Is there any other method to increase my knowledge of vocabulary  faster?

Do have any tips?

Please help me

It's more practical to learn only words you really need, because unused words will be forgoten, so no reason to learn just to lose. :)

Your way would work, but I learned of a way that I think is much better.  I use Anki,  a free ¨spaced repetition¨ computer program to  help me review words on a schedule that research shows is most efficient for memorizing things.  

I do as he describes in this video below. I watch a video or movie in my target language that has subtitles in my target language as the source for finding words I want to memorize .

Watch movie which have subtitle below. And open your dictionary. It will help you to speak English clearly.

Read whatever is interesting or relevant to you, such as a newspaper or a book you like, or a book on something that interests you. Look up the words you don't understand in a dictionary, and write them down to review later. I don't know what is a vocabulary book, but I do know you need to see a word in a context to remember it, so try to memorize the whole sentences rather than just words.
