I like this word dormimos...
Using word association..
I think, dorm room..
Where one would sleep in said dorm room, right?
So, it helps me remember dormimos is something about sleeping..
and then the -mos part.. reminds me..
the word has something to do with a " we " situation.
We sleep in a dorm room.. - tho not altogether a correct translation -
Dormimos en una dormitorio. ( kinda sorta.. dormitorio = bedroom lol )
You look in a mirror.
Usted mira en un espejo.
This is just MY TRICK to associate one word with a word that I'm more familiar with..
If this is confusing to you...
Don't use it. :)
BUT? Do share your own tips...
I personally when people share their own learning tools..
If it works for me too? All the better ñ_ñ !!
I do this too. Recently I learned a new english word because of it. I had just learned the word disculpe (excuse), when I was watching a period drama on tv. A character said "I don't need your exculpation!". Even though I had never heard the word, given the context I noticed the similarity to disculpe and understood. I looked it up afterwards. Exculpation means to forgive or make excuses for something. Learning a new language has made me pay more attention to my own language. The English language is basically a melting pot of all the other languages anyway so the similarities aren't surprising. We used to speak Gaelic until we were invaded by Romans, French, Saxons and Vikings, then went on to invade most of the world our self.
