Using mnemonics to memorize numbers 20

Since I recently became interested in Tarot cards, I found another way to remember the numbers. I liked this method the most. There are Major Arcana in the Tarot that are numbered from 0 to 21. I use this in memorization. Thus, if I need to remember, for example, the number 257, I remember the sequence: High Priestess, Hierophant, and Chariot. To make this easier, I come up with an appropriate story. This method is good for memorizing numbers for a short time.

Good job, Oleks!

Since I have recently became become interested in Tarot cards, I found another way to remember the numbers. I liked this method the most. There are The Major Arcana in the a Tarot pack that are numbered from 0 to 21. I use this in for memorization. Thus, if I need to remember, for example, the number 257, I remember the sequence: High Priestess, Hierophant, and Chariot. To make this easier, I come up with an appropriate story. This method is good for memorizing numbers for a short time.

Hi Oleks,

I've never really looked into Tarot cards before. It would be great if you could tell us some more about them and the reasons why you have become interested in them recently!

I have no idea what the words "Arcana, High Pristess, Hierophant etc " refer to haha! But am certainly intrigued!

Aliakbar has done a great job of evaluating your written English.

Just a couple of comments

1. This method is good for memorizing numbers for a short time. -> This method is good when it comes to (it is good not to use the word "for" twice in once sentence )memorizing numbers for a short time.

2. recently  - pronunciation.

Good job Oleks. I hope the revision suggestions are helpful. Just minor edits to your sentences to help simplify them. Please let us know if you have any other questions on improving your grammar.
