Hi,

One tactic I use when trying to learn new words is to break them into smaller ones…such as: Compromise = Com – pro – mise. I visualize the word, then I can relate it back to the meaning…

Another thing I do is hear the way a word or phrase sounds in English and try to tie it to something about the word: Playa = Beach – Play a(t) Beach

It won’t work for everything, but it might help give your brain something else to hold onto besides just the ‘verbs and grammar’ which isn’t all that stimulating…lol.
