I have to learn a language, and I've chosen Spanish. I've tried and tried to learn the simplest of phrases and words, and it won't stick. Nothing will. I sometimes read something, and I remember it several days later, but I don't try to remember these things and they're usually useless, stupid stuff. For the past hour, I've been trying to remember three words, just simple greetings for Morning, Afternoon, and Evening. It will not go into my head. I cannot recall what these words were after 2 minutes of constant repetition of the words. Does anyone know of anything that could help me? Flash cards, repetition and other methods aren't working, and I'm literally grasping at straws here. The only way I'm even able to get the first week's worth of work done is by copy+pasting words to (try) to form a complete sentence, and even then I won't be able to read the responses I get on the assignment.
