How can I put words I don't often use into my long term memory? I have trouble doing this, as I think I know them, and a few weeks later I can't remember them.
For example, a word I am trying to learn is 버스 정류장, which means 'bus stop'. I never, in any conversations I ever have even in English, use 'bus stop'. So, I soon forget 버스 정류장 because I just haven't used it.
I have even greater problems in Mandarin, as I am forced to remember the characters. In Korean, soemti
Are there any tactics to get around this problem?
