Person in vocabulary

is there a trick to remembering whether to use jin or nin for person

To add to what I said there, some people create characters who are always used in associated mnemonics, like a ninja for にん and a genie for じん or something.


The thing is, I never remember if the story is supposed to be about a genie or ninja!

I can’t really help with the details, but I’m assuming people have things that figure into it, like attributes of genies or ninjas that can be related to the word in question (Like 人生 is じんせい because genies live longer than ninjas or something like that).

It’s just a baseline to work off of at the end of the day. You can memorize anything with enough brute force.


Have the same problem :sweat_smile:

That`s great!!! :smiley:
