For nouns add a GENDER TRIGGER: a MALE character for masculine words (blue text), FEMALE for feminine (red text) and for NEUTER words - a SMOKING ANIMAL (orange text).
Note the colors used above for the text of the word. Other words like verbs, adjectives and others are green.
CHARACTERS: Try to add a famous character to your German Memory Trigger for deeper embedding in the subconsious and better recall. Try characters from history, politics, sports, movie, sports stars etc.
(Try to avoid referring directly to licensed characters - Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck. If using them say something like '... that looks like Donald Duck...' rather than a direct use of Donald Duck.)
For verbs and adjectives use characters that somehow remind you of the word.
Here's our German Memory Trigger for the verb to BUILD which is...
... and which sounds like BOWIN', as in bowin' up and down...
The BEST TRIGGERS will be incorporated in future courses and the best contribution of the month will get a 200 Words a Day! free course download.
If you have a picture to add - cartoon, photo, collage, montage etc submit it too! You don't need a picture, but we know that the Memory Triggers are more effective with pictures.
Add your German Memory Trigger. If possible include a famous person or character associated with the word. For nouns - Male for masculine, female for feminine and a smoking animal for neuter words.
