For my immediate purposes I need a system for learning English vocabulary as a first language.
I am using the Link Word Method and occasionally using the Key Word Method and periodically place words in my Memory Palace. However, due to the immense volume of words and the complex system of English words being made from Latin roots it is not always possible to create a vivid enough image that I can easily deduce from reviewing the vocabulary.
Alex Mullen has a system for learning Chinese by assigning images to letters or groups of letters very similarly to a PAO system.
However, this only works for Chinese as it only uses single syllable words and because such a small enough group of letters are reused enough to limit the number of images to something manageable.
I feel this is down the right path of a creating a more effective system than the Link Word method.
What are your thoughts?
