Does anyone else find the premade mnemonics useless? I often find they are random, convoluted, far too long and don’t particularly connect together. Pretty much 99% of the time I don’t find them useful and resort to my own one.
For example the Kanji 止:
Reading Mnemonic: When we need to remember the sound し, we use the word “Charlie Sheen.” - When you think stop, do you also think “stop sign”? I hope you do. You’re coming up to a stop sign, and on top of it, standing straight up and down, you see Charlie Sheen, saluting the sky. Even before you come to a stop, Sheen starts yelling “STOPP! STOPPP!!” and jumps down onto the hood of your car, breaking the windshield in.
I would much rather a simplified version like:
Reading Mnemonic: し (she) stops.
To me that’s so much easier rather than piecing together something to do with charlie sheen and stop signs and all manner of other random things. I really think mnemonic needs to be much shorter and to the point.
