Once you get your intention straightened out, then prepare for your "class" as you prepare yourself for any special occasion. Wear nice clothing, put some cologne on and sit down calmly. Make dua like this:
"Allahumma 'allimnaa ma yanfa'una wanfa'na bima 'allamtanaa wa zidnaa 'ilman ya kareem"
"Oh Allah, teach us what benefits us and benefit us with what you have taught us and increase us in knowledge oh noble one!"
Arabic vocabulary is easier when you know why and how the word is used. I applaud your effort, masha Allah, but you might be selling yourself short if you're not taking the effort to learn Arabic language.
For example, if you know the language, it's easier for you to differentiate between:
aaminoo and aamanoo.
both have same letters but different signs on the letter meem.
Now, knowing this will make understanding Al Quran easier and will definitely give some excitement to know what your Lord is saying to you.
May Allah make you among ahlul Quran. Ameen.
