The number to letters method (Consonants and vowels) that I’m attempting is not working out very well; my brain simply refuses to accept certain non existent (as in not part of a language I know) words as real and some images of (real) words are just not easy to visualise. And because I have a couple of days free from work I’m going to make a fresh start with something that on first review doesn’t make much sense but I have been wrong about what makes sense and what doesn’t very often, so I will give it a go.
I’m going to bypass the theoretical underpinnings of this method and just give some examples, as I feel this will clarify the method sufficiently. Don’t freak out, but there will be a test at the end.
23 = a christmas tree; place the base of the tree on the number 2 key and and the top on the the number 3 key;
39 = a banana; place one end of the banana on the number 3 key and the other end on the number 9 key so that most of the banana is lying on the right of the keyboard.
17 = a giraf; just picture a giraf on the full length of the left side of the keyboard;
71 = an orang utang; the orang otang is hanging with one hand from the upper left corner of the keyboard (number 7 key) and presses the number 1 key with his other other arm, with his feet on the left of the number key board;
19 = an elephant; one of the elephants legs is in the bottom left corner of the keyboard (number 1 key) and his trunk is stretched to reach the upper right corner (number 9 key);
55 = a screwdriver; stick the screwdriver in the middle of the keyboard and turn it to the left and to the right (indicating a double usage of the number 5 key).
39 19 55 71 17 23 … can you recall the objects?
