NOTES ON MY MEMS:
I usually use a memorizing system when I’m studying a certain topic, in this case Japanese Verbs, so I wanted to share with anyone else.
@ 494 Verb Course:
» for “ichidan” ~RU verbs (exp: taberu, conjugated exp: tabete), I’ll use a character called Rooster
» for “godan” ~U verbs (exp: kau, conjugated exp: katte), I’ll use a character called Unagi (eel in Japanese)
» for “godan RU” ~RU verbs (exp: shiru, conjugated exp: shitte) , I’ll use a character called Chameleon (because like a hidden chameleon, you have to know which verbs ending in RU are actually goden RU verbs, not true RU verbs)
My Rules for 494 Japanese Verb Mem Creation:
» Use my three creature characters for Verb ending, especially Chameleon as he will indicate any Godan RU verbs that need to be carefully conjugated.
» Don’t forget to double check all verbs ending in RU to make sure they aren’t Godan RU Verbs.
» try to use Japanese pronunciation to come up with mnemonic words.
» indicate any Japanese words I used as synonyms for part of the story.
