You might do better if you didnt look at them in the awful flip-3d mode.

Just read them and come up with metaphors or something. Easy. I rock at vocab type things. 

Oh yea, might want to hit SIGN OFF on the top right corner of this site

NEVER use flash cards. They waste time to make and are completely pointless.
best steps for me to study nearly 100 words in 45 minutes and get the best grade in class:

1. Print out the words with the definitions
2. Fold the paper hot dog style covering the definitions of each word.
3. Study the words while the definitions are uncovered for a while until you know you can get at least 1/2 of them.
4. Close the cover and test yourself to see if you know the definitions.
5. Try to add on to the number you can do until you find there are just a few you have a hard time with.
6. Mark those words on the list and just study those words alone.
7. Throw every word together once you get comfortable and you're done!

Everyone learns different. When I take the time to write anything down, it just helps. And by literally speaking what you are writing down out loud as if you were talking to someone helps. Then shuffle the flash cards and study again.

I love to use my vocabulary but I must admit, the words you are learning I have only used two.

Your loss. Heck, you could've memorized 5 of those in the time you took to post this thread.

Make sure you don't study too much at one time. If you do, your memory will get "overloaded" and won't remember each definition. Wait after you know a good amount and try again the next morning.

I have found mornings are a great time to study, don't know why but it is MUCH easier to remember things versus late at night (as in now).

our teacher makes us learn extremely weird words. I've only used/do use like 5 out of the 200 words he's given us. So I don't really know, I'll never see most of the words again after this year.
