    Hi dtommy79

    Reading helps, as does listening to CDs and DVDs because the languag is presented in a context. In order to retain the new vocabulary, you'll need to use it.

    Hi Soup,

    Thanks for the answer.
    Well, I read a lot as well as listen to music and watching movies in English, but it seems to me a bit slow. Perhaps I'm just impatient

    Does anyone have some good old technique?

    Yes, you are too impatient. Learning a foreign language simply takes time and perseverence...and patience.
