How did you pick your words, and how did you learn their meanings?

Did you have a Hungarian/English dictionary?

My grandmother (OBM) said she learned English by listening to baseball games on the radio. I've always taken her at her word, but I admit I'm stumped as to how that would work.

I could listen to some foreign-language radio station all day, and I doubt I'd pick up very much.
