Tips for remembering vocabulary

has anyone got any tips for trying to remember new words.

i tend to try and get a list of words (maybe 10 or so) and then every so often throughout the day try and rewrite the list from memory. It works quite well but you have to be fairly motivated to do it.
Flashcards are also pretty good but i'm too lazy to carry real ones around so i use the virtual ones on studyspanish.com

what does everyone else do ??

Re: tips for remembering vocabulary

There's a really good book on Memory techniques concerning foreign language vocabulary. I can't recall what it's called, but one of the authors names is Harry Lorraine. I'll look it up.

Es lo que estoy haciendo con "La Granja de los Animales" y aprovecho de traducir por mi cuenta, sin ir a mirar el ebook en español, sino preguntando en los foros.

Good idea, you could probably find some podcasts of news in Spanish to listen too as well.
