Yes, exactly!. Straight after coming across new words, I will try to make a sentence by using that word 2-3 times then and whenever I have a chance to include that word in my writing. Ever since I started learning languages, I strictly write at least 2 lines daily in the languages I focus on. Besides, it was my resolution to read even a paragraph in those languages on daily basis. Even though I was fed up with this in the early months, it became my daily routine and helped me very much to make my languages which were at a miserable level even better.
