How to memorize Dowling's Wheel and become fluent in fast

Another piece that may help to speed things up is memorizing the "right" words in a specific order. Researchers at Dickinson in concert with others have compiled and documented a list of the most common core vocabulary words in Latin (and in Greek) based on their frequency of appearance in extant works. This very specific data becomes a tremendously handy tool when attempting to learn and master a language. It is a truly impressive fact that, simply by knowing that if one can memorize and master the 250 most frequent words in Latin, it will allow them to read and understand 50% of most written Latin. Further, knowledge of 1,500 of the most frequent Latin words will put one at the 80% level of vocabulary mastery for most texts. Mastering even a very small list of vocabulary allows one to read a large variety of texts very comfortably. Continuing on to memorize more and more provides one with even more facility--though with obvious diminishing returns.

I've written a bit more on the topic here:

Additionally, I've created an Anki deck of flash cards that is downloadable ( with the ability to modify the root database, so that one can cross-link it with one's own mnemonic system/images/other to speed up the creation of image relations and memorization/drilling.
