I would not say up to 100 words a day. I really never tried to beat that result. I remember the very first time when I start to use mnemonics with english vocabulary: it was at my work (salesman at cash register, small shop). It took me about 3 hours to learn 100 words during doing my duties. So I was pretty distracted. If I had whole day…;]
Anyway I did this. I remember this words to this day and I might surprise u - I never used any kind of Palace. So from this came my question about palace method. I was doing hooks between meanings, I didn’t pin up them to any specific well known mind structure or palace. Believe me, meaning was triggering instantly. So if u ask how many words do I have at my palace, the answer is 0. IF u ask me how many words I know in english: for sure more than 10k, maybe close to 15k. Its hard to say, I read books without a problem.
Maybe its not popular what I say: its not so hard to memorize. The hard part is to organize all these language studies. To organize repetitions, to organize notes etc.
That’s why I find Paulo method really interesting and far more usefull a specially learning phrasal verbs. But first…I must completely understand this, ha ha ha.
I have in my plans to learn spanish. Im willing to use Paulo method. I will share my experience if u wish so.
