Meet the family of R in katakana and the stroke order in your writing!
The family of R in katakana
RA = ラ
For me, the katakana RA is half a bowl full of manioc (cassava for some). The first line is the cassava tree and the second line forms the half of the bowl. The last syllable of the word cassava is what resembles the sound of the RA symbol.
RI = リ
The katakana RI was based on its hiragana (り) version. The most common way in this case is to associate katakana in the same way as hiragana, remembering that katakana is a simplified version of hiragana and has more rectangular lines.
RU = ル
In this katakana we can see a ninja and a hook. The ninja uses the hook to fish for pomegranates in a sacred river in Japan. To remind myself of the sound of this symbol I distort the sound of the “ro” from the word “pomegranates” to “ru” into “rumáns” when I imagine the scene on the screen of my imagination.
RE = レ
If in katakana RU we have a ninja and a hook, in RE we only have one hook. They say that when someone uses this hook, he can catch anything at sea. The fish do not resist its magical power and end up trapped, making it extremely easy for fishermen to win any fishing championship. Again I distort the “re” of “resist” to recall the sound of this katakana.
RO = ロ
For me, the katakana Ro is a square wheel used by high-end cars. The difficult thing is to bear the balance when riding in a car with this type of wheel. (hehe). I don't even need to mention that I also distorted the “ro” in “wheel” so that when I remember the story, I remember the sound of this Japanese character. It is not?
