    When you learn a new word, use it quickly and keep using it, otherwise you might forget it.

    Use it three times in three different contexts. :wink:

    Example: mooflaw (made up word)

    I'll be mooflawing this weekend with John in Aspen.
    Did you see how he mooflawed that hill?
    Had I mooflawed like that when I was his age, I would have went pro.

    All the best, :D

    Learn a full sentence containing the word, preferably using a strange association, or something funny => you will better remember it.
    Write it down in a notebook and run through it very often, like everyday or so. Then try to use the word in an essay, or a conversation, or in the forums etc.
    With this method I remember some sentences I learned 8 years ago.
