Moment in German literally means: 'in the look (blink) of any eye'. The best way to remember new words and phrases is with a Memory Hook or Trigger, and one of the most powerful is a visual hook like the above. But there is more to the picture than meets the eye...
Note the ogre in the picture is male to help remind you that this word is masculine. Also, the trigger is color-coded blue, and in the programme, you will hear a male voice.
Remember the picture ... remember the German word plus remember the gender - all that the same time!
