Duolingo, please add gender and conjugation to the flashcards.
I would be eternally grateful.
Use images to remember the gender. For example, "der Tee" is masculine, so I pictured a man with tea pot sipping tea looking like a snob. He also has a round top hat and a monocle because that reminds me of Brits and Brits like to drink tea. "Schokolade" is feminine, so I pictured a woman eating a chocolate bar and she has choclate all over her fingers and mouth. "Pferd" is neuter, so imagined a ghost riding a horse, swinging a lasso. This helps a lot.
You can also use this to remember words. For example, I memorized the word "obwohl" by imagining Obi-Wan Kenobi dressed in wool. He is also pointing a finger in the air and looking like he is about to interrupt and has this specific look, because the word means "although". For the word "die Luft" I imagined a lift flying on air, because "die Luft" means "air". The lift is also pink and has a pink bowtie because the word is feminine.
