Learn the easy way via word association:
With the association learning method you will learn vocabulary much faster. For each English-Russian word pair, create a picture in your mind like a bridge connecting the English word with the Russian word. For example, the Russian word for back is "spina" which is similar to the English word "spine", so "spina" is now associated in your mind with "spine". Another example, the word "old" in Russian is "stah-ree" that sounds like the English word "story" a possible association here between the two words is tell me an old story.
With word association, you will only need two to three days to master a growing list of words. In the course of learning the language you will find it easier and easier to find associations.
For an in-depth explanation of associative learning techniques, we recommend the literature by Vera F. Birkenbihl.
