I’m about to try and learn German, but to help me out I was looking for a peg system for the most common 1,000 English words.
For instance, I saw a chart (but lost the bookmark), that said:
I = Hand
So when learning the German ‘ich’ I can remember an itchy hand, because in my peg a human hand means “I.”
Now, I know i’m not going to need the system for words such as ‘I,’ but I can foresee it being very useful for other words in the 1,000 word list.
