Seeing the world in Greek

How can I best learn new vocabulary items? What aids are there and what pitfalls should be avoided? How does a beginner learn to use a lexicon?

CulturaClassica is a website (Spanish language) that promotes living language approaches to learning Latin and Greek. Some of their members re-wrote Rouse’s “Greek Boy.” The book came out a year ago and is sold for 16 Euro. I’m thinking of ordering it. The preview pages show some truly wonderful artwork done specially for the book. It looks like they’ve simplified the story a bit, a good thing. Connected to this book is a wikispaces spot for developing materials connected to the book. Each lesson has a link on this page. http://alexandros-thp.wikispaces.com/
There are some nice images there, like this one:

That looks like a wonderful resource.

The image that is given for ἀσκός in the Grecian house gives preeminence to function over form.
