Orden de los adejtivos en ingles: regla mnemotécnica

How to remember the order

You can use the 'Roman room' memorisation technique. This involves
remembering a place that you know well, such as your home, and imagining walking
through it, looking at things.

  1. Imagine that you arrive at the door of your home. On the door is the
    letter 'A', and you are greeted by someone who lives there. This helps you to
    remember the article 'A' or the determiner(s); e.g. my Mother's.
  2. Imagine that you are happy to see each other. This helps you
    to remember the opinion adjective.
  3. Imagine the size of your home: is it big, small, or long?
    This helps you to remember the size adjectives.
  4. Imagine that you go into your home and you see an object. Remember the
    of the object.
  5. Now imagine that you walk around your home; e.g. towards your room. Think
    of another object further from the door. Think of the age of
    that object; e.g. new or old.
  6. Move on to another object, this time a colourful one. Remember what
    it is.
  7. Move on to another object. This object should remind you of a foreign
    place; e.g. a picture of somewhere in China, or a souvenir from a holiday
    abroad. This is to help you remember nationality.
  8. Next imagine moving to another object, this time a religious
    one. Maybe you have a place for worshipping your ancestors, or a statue of
  9. Next move to another object. This should be special because it is made of
    one material; e.g. a crystal ornament or a wooden statue.
  10. Finally move to a place where there is an object that is described with 2
    words, and the first is a noun; e.g. a book shelf. Imagine that this is
    the end of your journey around your flat.
