Many students think that learning new words is boring and repetitive activity. But there are many tips how to organize your vocabulary and make your studying more interesting.
Firstly, try to work with English texts. While reading make notes of all unfamiliar words and find definitions.
One more effective method is to write in your target language. Try to make some short stories with words that you learned. This kind of activity is the most useful way to remember new words.
You should classify words into parts of speech, nouns, adverbs, verbs and adjectives.
You can also learn new words by making cards. You can use it everywhere, read them being in a queue, or during your break.
Creating your own dictionary is also a good idea. Except definitions try to pay attention on pronunciation and etymology of words.
One of the most effective way of learning new words is studying Latin roots. They are a significant part of the English language so learning them brings benefit for you.

Finally, remember that you must practice every day and try to use your new words in your speaking or writing and you will know them like the back of your hand.
