In addition to flashcards (recognition), try writing them down also (production). Do this every day.

If you are a book person, there are two books I could recommend since I used these myself. "Let's Learn Hiragana" and "Let's Learn Katakana", both by Yasuko Kosaka Mitamura. These books have writing guides as well as exercises.

Try to look for them similarities on the Latin alphabet. For example, Ni. Ni looks somehow like an actual N so I guess that might be helpful.

Exactly. Or try to see if they remind you of anything. や reminds me of a vegetable (for whatever reason) and so, やさい。

@RooyAguirre: Careful though - this tends to mess me up (still) when it comes to も (which has nothing to do with "t") or ふ (which is not "b" - I recently saw that I had misspelled ぶたにく (pork) on more than one card).

What helped me at the time were mnemonics: try and google "hiragana mnemonics" - I bet some will be helpful and stick, and then you won't need them anymore.

Learning with Risa has helped me memorize all of my Hiragana, with the help of Duo of course.

Once you've got your Hiragana down, there's a video for Katakana:

Also Risa recommended small anime to help with getting the basics, once you've learned your Kana.

I watched all the anime she suggested, they were a huge help.

Btw, I promise I'm not Risa.
