Anna your method is of great useful because, leave me tell you something, you have had a great idea about, how you can learn the words, and any language, I'll do the pieces of papers and I'll stick where I see them over all day, and might I can learn the words faster, thanks for your counsel.

Good point Anna, but I prefer using an SRS, software based. Because I score myself, the software eventually knows what sentences to show more than others. Very effective.

Closed caption subtitles are also a good option. This is a program set up for people with hearing disabilities, but it's a great help for foreign language students. Watch a Spanish language movie with Spanish subtitles. This is good for advanced students. Sometimes accents are hard to understand, but if what the actors say is subtitled in their own language you will get better understanding. When idioms (sayings) are used that you don't understand, present them to the forum for translation. If you can't figure out some vocabulary words, jot them down and look them up.

I'm agree with you Poli, if he needs to learn Spanish I think what the better way would be watch movies in Spanish with subtitles in English, if the person doesn't know the meaning of the word or phrase, then what the put the phrases in the forums and between all us can help him if is necessary.

Eso es un modo tambien, pero para los estudiantes avanzados, es mejor
mirar una película en español con subtitulos en español. Así el estudiante
puede leer las mismas palabras dichas. A veces los accentos confunden, pero si lee la palabra se entiende mejor.

Very close. Good job.

You can also say, "... pero quiero aprender más escuchando."

El mejor modo de escuchar es hablar con alguien en español. Así aprendes
más rápido, pero si usas closed captioning y escuchar cantantes de canciones tradicionales puedes agudizar su accento y después vas a poder platicar en español mejor.
