Katakana Page 10
The final page... After years of procrastination (yes, I started these katakana pages years ago...), we are finally posting the last katakana page! (well almost, there is a recap page) It goes without saying, but to really get these characters inside your brain, you need to read, read and read more! Look for katakana on the internet; try to sound out what you find; see if you can figure out what the word means or at least where it came from - Ganbatte!
Write them out 10 times a day and soon you will get it. To aid memorization, make silly associations to go with them. You can use the above mnemonics or you can make your own!
How do you read these Katakana characters? What English words do they sound out? (Some may be easier than others to guess)
