you can practice it with your friends
you can also make notecards - cards for definition and cards for the vocab. Then you can play a game and match them.

Yes, you can to practice with your friends, or you also can to practice with people speaker native Spanish, I feel that is more effective if you practice with people of Mexico or Spain, good, I wish you the best in your learning.

Correct way: Yes, you can practice it with your friends, or you can practice it with native speakers of Spanish. I feel that it is more effective if you practice with people of Mexico or Spain. I wish you the best in your learning.

also you can do this - make some notecards with the vocabulary word on the front and definiton and/or translation in English and/or Spanish on the back. When you write down all the words, you can play a game. you can either do it yourself, or have a friend or family member do it. Here's how:
You, a friend, or family member take a card from the pile. Ask what is the translation in English and/or Spanish of the word and/or the definition. If you get it right, put the card in one pile. If wrong, put it in another.
Do you understand? Good luck with remembering your new vocab!

To help me out with learning vocabulary in Spanish I bought an activity book with rather basic translation activities. I generally photocopy some pages out of this book and give a friend of family member 5-6 copies of the same page and tell them to readminister this activity sheet at random intervals and at random times so I can become familiar with the vocab and make sure I remember the vocab so I don't screw up on an activity sheet. I currently have very limited Spanish vocab but this strategy was quite helpful for me when I learned French. (Je suis billangue maintenant ^.^)

I recommend you, if you can chat with someone at the internet, I tell you, because I have learnt so much with my friends here at this forum.

The best way for me is to use the words in sentences, or just as much as you can. I've been on this forum for a few days now and can say that I've already learned many new words and sayings. I will remember them because I use them when I am in my spanish class in school.

To me, is to copy a book by hand in the language of choice. As you do it, translate it too. I can assure you that by the end of the book you'll know what you are reading, writing and talking about. :-)

But. It has to be a book (theme) that you really like. If you already read a book that you really, reeeeaaally loved, then look for it in Spanish, and start doing.
