Personally, I think that's an excuse There are books you can learn or just spend only 10 - 15 minutes or even 5 minutes. I spend 5-10 minutes (For books) each day or 1 hour time frame of trying to teach myself a new word whether it be watching tv shows (1 hour) in that language.
There's a difference between knowing words and understanding the relationships between them in a foreign language, as well as picking up the patterns.

I can get myself a book and go through words every day for 5 minutes, or go through days, numbers, colors etc., but I don't really see it that beneficial, especially in the long run. There has to be a progression in complexity in order for it to be beneficial, if your goal is to learn a new language.

There is a reason why Cambridge ESOL exams (at least the ones I've taken in English) mark your writing, listening, speaking, reading and use.

I've taken English classes for years, and there really is no substitute for guided learning. What you suggested I see as nothing more than a supplement to that.
