Language learners:

Do you have a system for organizing your vocabulary? I'm feeling so overwhelmed with literally piles of papers covered in words all over the floor. I try to limit myself to one vocabulary notebook, but I compulsively collect them and always end up with notebook after notebook filled with random vocabulary.

The only really helpful thing I do is to organize lists of words by theme: the human body, household items, foods, etc. I then place them on the wall until they're thoroughly memorized.

I also list verbs, adjectives, nouns, etc. seperately. Although verbs tend to be the thing I write down most often so the list quickly grows really long.
