The Goldlist Method

February 2012

Has anyone ever tried using the so-callled 'goldlist' method for learning vocabulary?

The method was first invented by an English guy living in Poland (I believe his name is David James.) He seems to be a little strange - making some of his Youtube videos in a faux "Russian" accent, etc. But he is also undoubtedly a very accomplished linguist (fluent in Polish, Russian and German.)

As a rule I'm against learning words in any kind of lists, because they are divorced from natural context. But this method does seem to work pretty well for some people - as can be seen from the review linked to above.
