"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    For me, as I'm very visual, I need to see the words written down. Better still, I need to write the new words down and then try to form sentences using them both in written form and speaking them @MartinC.

    I use them in my poetry. We daily have a word prompt where we have to use a new word in our poem, so it is fun learning words like this.

    Hello I am new here.
    I use an app called Anki, at least for me is awesome, it has been helping me for 10 months more or less and my vocavulary is much better than before.
    So, try it, and let me know.

    I always write down and create the sentence with new word, sometime i review it.
    It's my way : )

    When I listen or read a new word then I google it for the meaning and I try to remember those words though I don't use all newly learned words in writing or speaking.

    As @Juanj said, Anki is awesome. If I were you, I should take a look.

    When i learn new words, first that I do it`s listening some video with subtitile in english. While i listening i at the same time write down word which i don`t know her meaning. When video end up, i read that word which a wrote down, and again listen many times same video, but this time subtitles always been off.

    I know this is not a good method to learn new things but i didn't get proper guidelines to speak
    and learn english.

    well i have actually made a timetable ... so for daily i learn 10 new words, and write it down in my notebook with its meaning , and at the weekend , i just revise all the words of past 7 days, for now i have started with 10 words . but soon i will increase yhe no. of words for each day.

    But i guess it has helped me alot. Sometimes i take the words from dictionary or from newspaper or from somewhere else. You can also imply for the same , But this truely has helped me alot..👍👍
