3. In words
In this book, readers are first offered a repition of alphabet, sounds, inflection and conjugation. Then, you get page after page of lists of word families: 396 wordfamilies, to form 5250 word lines.
Every word family has the basic word, and then a number of words which are related to it (for example: lapsi, lapsuus, lapseus, lapsekas, lapsukainen, lapsettaa, etc).
Every word has been written down in a few of the cases. Translations are not given, because the basic word is always given. They reason that the reader is able to use a dictionary to look up the meanings.
This is a good way to learn words which are related to words you already know. Still, I think you need a lot of patience and motivation to learn anything this way, as it gets boring really fast.
