How many words can you learn per day?


Hello everyone, I'm a new member on this forum and as you can read from my profile, I really like learning foreign languages... I can speak italian (native speaker), a bit of english, spanish and japanese... Recently, I became interested on mnemonics technique because they can help you to study and memorize things more easily. I tried the keyword method to learn new foreign words and I have to say they work flawlessly... I was able to learn some vocab in few minutes... And here is my question, or I have to say "curiosity" ahah... How many words can you learn per day using mnemonic techniques? Do you use keyword method too? One week ago, I started to study korean (yeah, I really like oriental languages) and I noticed it has a very similar grammar to japanese, so I'm not worried about that... So I decided to improve my vocabulary quickly and then focus on grammar and reading. :)

As much as you want. It all depends on how effectively you use these mnemonics. And also on how you define "learning".

Atm I'm learning 20 per day, I will try to start increasing the number gradually soon.
It is a language with noun gender so the mnemonics need to cover that too, I'm really happy with how it is going, currently using mnemonics without method of loci, and anki for spaced repetition with the intervals suggested by Paul Pimsleur.
