It doesn’t matter if you have talent for learning or not.
What matters is the right method.
Are you familiar with good old paper flashcards?
They were quite nice. But in 2014 we can do much better:)
Flashcards on your smartphone with spaced-repetition system
+ MP3 pronunciation + examples + images
= super easy & efficient way of learning. Try it out for free.
Multi-sensory input and repetition system make a difference!

Personally, when I commute I learn about 100 new words daily and revise the old ones. You can do the same:)
