Shampa,
Thank you for a very good piece of advice for the learners of English but I have another piece too. Please respons to it.
With my father's advice, when he bought me an A.T. Dev' s English to Bengali Dictionary, I started to learn one word a day but soon I forgot and another strategy automatically started out of my curiosity and that was I got glued to the English of the Bengali like " Apni shu'tey thai pai na/ Shonkorakey daakey" etc. In stead of learning a word every, I started memorizing my chosen idiomatic expressions in the list of the great A.T.Dev.
I still use those memorized stuff like magic to charm my students.
An old, and currently not in style, strategy of memorizing has worked well for me.

Thank you sir for suggestion.

This word list is really tough to memorize unless one does not use them in context. If there is funny and effective way of remembering all these words, please share with us.  :)
