French, Week 15

Some weeks, you feel like you go through the motions.
This was not one of those weeks.

Made a small breakthrough that helps me now remember words faster, when I add images to my app.
Now in addition to the images for the word, I also add an image that might help me remember how the word actually ‘sounds’.

For example, this is word I have to learn. Singe.
Singe is monkey, in French.
So here’s a monkey … of sorts.

The thing with ‘this’ monkey though is that, he’s singing.
And my brain goes … hmmm … singing monkey … singing … sing … Singe!

Like Trinity says, “That’s a nice trick!” :)

Will do this with all new cards now.
And the old ones that I find hard to remember.
