Would like to see a practice of common nouns

Always difficult to memorize the gender for German nouns. That trips me up all of the time.

As I was learning Italian at university, I used to write words in a little hardcover notebook which fitted into my pocket. Whenever I had a free moment, at a traffic light (riding a bike, one had to wait very long those years), anything, I took out the book and learned. Write nouns with their article and plural down and learn them.

Try to come up with an image in your head to help. For 'der', something with a man. For 'die' with a woman. And for 'das', with an alien, perhaps.

Thinking of my post about writing things down. I forgot there is probably already something cluttering up your pocket: The Smartphone. Could take the place of the notebook.
