I am asking this question because there is no point come across much vocabulary or rules, and can not record in the subconscious. It is a conceptual issue. I strongly believe that "spaced repetition" is one of most important techniques. Also the quality of sleep interferes with learning in general, not just English.

I believe that "spaced repetition" works, though I don't personally use it. I usually learn by not learning it. (It might sound strange, but I found that it works best for me. For example, to learn touch-typing, I put a keyboard chart on a wall over my PC. Then, I glanced up from time to time. Before I knew it, I was able to touch-type.) Some other effective ways are "use it" and "help others" with it. It's strange but true! ;-) –  Damkerng T. Dec 30 '13 at 11:02
