H's family in katakana
HA = ハ
The katakana HA is the same symbol used for HACHI ( number 8 in kanji ). He also realized that HA is the first syllable of HACHI. If you wish, you can use this association if you already know Kanji for eight.
In case you don't already know the Kanji for eight, you can memorize this katakana one by imagining a mouse as Mikey Mouse, or rather, imagining Mikey Mouse's legs. That's right. This symbol, to me, looks like the two legs of a mouse. The HA sound comes from the mouse RA.
HI = ヒ
The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this katakana for the first time was a child sitting smiling, raising his arms as if asking me to hold him. That made it easy. No. Just draw a sitting child and remember that his smile makes the same sound as the katakana HI.
FU = フ
This katakana was also pretty quick to create in my mind. As I looked at him, the handle of a cup of tea immediately came to my mind. The tea was so hot that smoke was coming out of the cup. The smoke coming out of the cup reminds us of the sound of katakana FU.
HE = ヘ
understand? The katakana HE is the same hiragana symbol. A high relief, a hill or a hill. Click here and read more about hiragana HE.
HO = ホ
The HO katakana is a sword using crutches (hehe). For the sword to be able to walk and even play Hokey (read about hiragana HO), it needs crutches. Will she get a spot in Beijing? (Olympics in China).
Hokey was the same word used for the hiragana HO. I put it here so we can hear, behind Hokey, the sound of this katakana.
