Making better mnemonics with stronger images
If you are having difficulty remembering some of the Spanish language images then you need to make the image even more bizarre and as crazy as possible.
MORE BIZARRE AND AS CRAZY AS POSSIBLE!
Take, for example:
Tea – el té
At the moment, our picture shows:
My tea tasted funny after the monkey had dangled its tail (té) in it.
If you are having difficulty remembering this then make the image more bizarre and as crazy as possible:
This will help you remember the mnemonic better.
Son - hijo
Maybe the Spanish word for son is not being retained in your memory even after seeing the following mnemonic:
He had a way of dealing with his naughty son – he hosed (hijo) him down.
So you may have to change the image in your head to one more bizarre and as crazy as possible.
Now it's more likely to be remembered.
Sister - hermana
Maybe hermana just doesn't spring to mind even after seeing the following mnemonic:
She looked very different to her sister and her manner (hermana) was totally different too.
So let's make it more bizarre and as crazy as possible:
Now you can't help but remember what slake means.
If you're having difficulty remembering a mnemonic then the image is not bizarre or crazy enough for you.
