I just have to vent a little about having the absolute hardest time remembering verb vocab that is so similar! I can’t come up with any clever mnemonics for these in English.
e.g. right now I’m having trouble with:
おくる - to send something
おくれる - to be late
くれる - to be given
つくる - to make
つかれる - to get tired
I don’t know the kanji for most of these yet, so I can’t even get any hints from that.
Anyone else have a set of non-kanji vocab that they just can’t untangle? What is it? Any hints from more advanced learners on how to separate these in my head?
