Retaining the information

Can anyone recommend good methods of retaining foreign language vocabulary? I remember it was the worst part of my language skills at school, and it hasn't really got better over the years. I'm out of the habit of memorising stuff -- well, useful stuff at least -- because these days I tend to just remember where the book with the information in was.

This wasn't a big deal in this year's exam because we could use a dictionary, but I know I'm going to feel the lack in next year's. Anyone got good suggestions?

  • Gah -- "friends" page styles

    Anyone know how to turn off LJ's new "feed" style friends pages? Do not want. I find my existing 25-entries-per-page to be much more manageable.

    Merry winter-festival-of-your-choice, all of you!

  • Gissa job...

    No, no, not me, but a friend of mine is losing his retail job this coming Monday when the place where he works closes down. (Nice timing...) Anyone…
