Hey Hana, how u doin? So if you wanna live somewhere it's not enough to have some bricks, mortar, windows, doors, rooftiles, anything that is needed to build a great house. Memorizing means you only try to hold a couple of bricks in your arms, which won't be too useful, plus they are heavy so you will be jaded quite quickly. Avoid it! You'd rather want that house and that means you need to build it brick by brick. Try to focus on context, find complete phrases, statements, questions regarding that subject and learn them all together. Like mini essays. It needs time, a hell lot of time, but keep doing it and it will be easier and more satisfying down the road. Oh yeah, and don't forget to find someone to practice it's always fun.
