Today’s Word: easy-going

February 23, 2017 =========

☆  easy-going  のんきな


A good way to remember a new word is to create some kind connection or funny idea that connects the two words. As soon as I saw this word, I thought of a “donkey” … the word sounds the same as the Japanese, and donkeys are quite easy-going creatures – although apparently, they are more easy-going and relaxed if you have two donkeys instead of one.

So, that is how I would remember this word if I were learning the Japanese word, for example, “a nonki donkey.” An easy-going donkey… You could use this to help you remember the English word, I guess, but it doesn’t mention the word “easy-going” so it might not be helpful to you. What do you think? Why don’t you try to come up with a different way to remember this word and tell me about it on the Facebook post?
