    To tell you the truth, you just gotta memorise them the same way as remembering the facts from your biology textbook. There's no easy way to it, it helps when you write them out repeatedly in column of paper with their English definitions next to it. As far as grammar goes it's so much more easier than that of English.

    I was afraid that, that would be the answer was hoping there would be a magic method that I hadn't found and could easily learn the vocab but will have to continue with the time consuming revision! Thank you anyway. ☺️

    As a native-Chinese speaker, the way we'd learn Chinese during nursery is by repeatedly writing columns of columns of radicals and characters in a sheet of paper, and let it engrave into our memory. Anyway good luck.
