You should associate "problem" words with a word you already know. For example, if you're learning the word "bed" in Italian (= il letto), you can think of the verb "to let" to help you remember it.
Words like "la marée" (= "the tide"), can be learned easily using this method. Of course, you need to think of good words that will help you remember the translation!
"La marée" sounds a bit like "Mary". Learning a sentence like "Mary likes to walk on the beach when the tide is low." is probably a good idea if you're struggling with the word "marée"!
