The 20’s – Second Batch at Level 2

Just a quick note to those joining this continuing series in the middle – rewind in the blog to find the beginning of the memory system: it’s dated 21 November 2010.

Here we go with the 20’s. After this, you’ll be equipped to memorize lists of up to 30 things, more-or-less. The following are the PERMANENT pegs for numbers 20 through 29. In earlier posts, we got ideas for memory words with the same consonants, and we reprise some of those here, but the permanent ones should come to mind immediately when encountering the numbers. Don’t forget to add the other senses to the mix: sound, smell, touch, even taste.
