I take a sheet and I write on it the words I need to learn and their meaning, then I fold the sheet, so I can only see the meaning of the words, and I try to remember and write the words. When I've finished I can check if I wrote them correctly, and I repeat all of this for the words that I wrote wrongly until I remember all of them correctly.

I try to learn phrases, not just a single words

I write the words and throw them in a box, open them randomly and memorize the words that come out.

I take notes and write in my notebook to remember new words, then review a few days a week

First I read it, 1 or 2 times. Then I write it down on paper. I try to remember each word. It often helps me, when I learn with my friend or my mother.

I usually try to write a journal or comments using new words and phrases. Also I make sentences with new vocabulary in my mind because it's really helpful to stuck informations in my head for a long time

To remember new vocabulary I usually read it loudly with translation, type or write it, review it every day, record it myself and listen to it.

I usually write in my notebook the word that I don't know and write the meaning of that word.

I keep an organised vocabulary notebook and look at the words again after 24 hours, after one week and after one month.

Honestly, I am a person who are very lazy in learning new vocabs. I feel uncomfortable when I learn it mechanically so I tend to see English films or watch lyrics music videos instead. I think it's one of the best way to improve my vocabs, listening skill and so on.

Remembering new vocalulary is not easy , so that I have found the way to do that. When having a new word, I often write a sentence using it on a piece of paper and paste them on everywhere I can see. It not only makes new words be not difficult to learn but also gives me interest in learning English.

I write down new vocabularies on a notebook and try to learn by heart them. It's not effective.

As others wrote, I used to write new words and try to memorize. Then I use my vocabulary in my texts, that helps me to not forget these vocab. Anyway some of those words I never forget again.
