Method 1: Making a word list

You can make your own mini dictionary, where you can find words and expressions on different topics. Electronic dictionaries like Lingvo and Multitran will be useful. Or you can find ready made word lists for example on

Do not forget to repeat the words regularly. You can set the number of words you need to learn a day.

To repeat the words you may use the same dictionary, covering words in English and leaving Russian words uncovered.

You may use the cards as well. On the one side of the card you write a word in your language and you write the English translation of this word on the other side. You can shuffle the cards before going to bed or while you are travelling, you will spend your time quite informatively.
