Hi Mazharul,

I would try to learn collocations and to use them in various contexts.So don't learn just  "make" but "to make a decision".

I use Memrise for learning and revising. Are you able to speak German? If yes, you could have a look at my blog, there are tons of tips.

Kind regards Christine

Hi=) I've never enjoyed learning words without context, even as a beginner. I memorise things quicker if they are connected for me to a reading, discussion or interesting conversation. Sometimes I made notes with new words from my readings, the ones I saw as helpful and would like to start using in my active vocabulary. There are also a lot of vocabulary textbooks which introduce new words and provide a lot practice.

(I just wrote this on another thread)

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 .

Hi! I use special app for learning new words. It's very helpful. Now a lot of such kind applications exist. I use "Memrise" (memrise.com). Also flashcards are very helpful. Try to look for the app you would find convenient. I think nowadays it's the most popular way to memorise new vocabulary. Good luck!
