Is Memorizing Effective?

In the middle of my chat with a friend yesterday, she told me that she is struggling to memorize a list of English words. It came up to my mind about the effectiveness of memorizing as a way of language learning. Honestly, I did that before when I was at school. There was a joke of people memorizing the words are only when they are facing the exam. They will forget what they have memorized after the exam.

Forgetful Brain

As far as I have known, it is true that you will forget easily. Our brain is forgetful. Hence, memorizing is not effective if you want to be fluent in the language. If you really like this method, you still can do it but keep only a list of words or phrases that you will frequently use. Do not overload your brain. As long as you spend much time with the language, I am sure you will remember it.
