memorizing vocabulary

I'm a rather new member of this list, having only found out about it a few
weeks ago, so please excuse my ignorance if my question has been dealt with\
in the recent past. I am currently teaching a first-year New Testament Greek
class, and some of my students are having serious trouble memorizing their
vocabulary. I've experienced this problem before in other classes that I've
taught, but the difficulty seems to be greater this time. (I'm using Bill
Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek for the first time, and perhaps the words
are harder.) I'm wondering if anyone on the list has any creative ideas
that I could pass on to my students. At present they are following the
standard flash card route, which works well for some people but not for
others. Even my tips about how to use the flash cards aren't helpful for
some of them. Any bright ideas?
