Jorge, I think each person has to find what works best for him. 

 

I like "flashcards".  They are small blank cards a little smaller than a business card.  You write "mesa" on one side and "table" on the other.  Let's say that you have 50 cards.  You take them EVERYWHERE with you.  When you have a moment, you study them.  Let's say that you start with the words in English.  You read "table".  You're sure it's "mesa".  You turn the card over.  You were right!  Now you remove the card from the others.  You continue.  You started with 50 cards, and now you have 40.  You do it again.  Now you have 28 cards.  Do it again.  Now you have 16 cards.  Do it again.  When you've gone through all 50 cards, go through them again.  Now reverse the process.  Look at the words in Portuguese. You can buy a box with about 1000 cards that already have words and their translations.  And you can buy cards that are blank. 

 

I've tried using lists, and I didn't like the method.

 

Another tip that seems to work is to try to use the word as soon as possible after learning.  Put it in a sentence.  Say it to someone, write it to someone.
