I just can’t get my head wrapped around with the u-sound! Like 古 (Ko) and 公(kou). Sometime i might accidentally added an “U” to Ko, or not adding “U” to Kou. It really frustrates me!
For 古, I just came up with a reading mnemonic that might help me. “Grandpa Ko is old”. Hopefully it helps to solve this 古. Still there plenty of Kanji around with the same issue! Recently, another kanji is 号 and 午. For 午 reading mnemonic, “Goku have to fight Frieza in the afternoon”. As for, 号, no possible reading mnemonic yet.
What’s your solution? How did you overcome this?
