Tip on remembering conjugations

I found this really helpful, when learning new verbs or common conjugations (like I am, you are, we are, etc.) sing them to your favorite pop song (or regular song).

One that I made up for Italian basics-- I sang the verb essere conjugations to Rihanna's song "Where have you been?" (singing the tune "Wheeerrre haavve youuu been..." but saying soooooono sei E, etc.) and did the verse after with the subject (io tu lui/lei....)
