    I definately go with the audio methods for learning new vocab. I can learn words this way all day long and they stay in my memory! Flash cards and vocab lists I easily forget. The trouble is that there is a lack of good CD's out there. I suppose I could make them myself but that would take a long time and I might get the pronounciation all wrong.

    Флэшкарты меня раздражают. Они требуют предпринятия слишком многих усилий. Я лучше всего запоминаю слова, когда я их использую на этом форуме.

    Basurero, "требуют предпринятия слишком многих усилий" - это как-то совсем не по-русски, хотя граматически правильно.
    Лучше сказать просто "требуют слишком многих усилий"
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Я не уверен, что в русском языке есть слово предпринятие, тогда уж предпринимание
    "требуют предпринимания слишком больших усилий"
    Хотя так всё равно не говорят.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    A rotten way to learn foreign languages.
    You WILL know the language, but consider the price...

    Just write them down a thousand times and repeat in your head a million times
    Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
