Mnemonic Device

Memory Verse:

In Italian:

"Le Vocali"

Ah, che cose strombe!

L'A con due gambe;

L'E con tre braccia;

L'O tondo in faccia.

Curioso e L'U

Che guarda in su;

Ma il piu carino

L'I col puntino.

In English:

Oh, what strange things!

The A with two legs;

The E with three arms;

The O's round face.

Different is the U that looks up;

But the cutest one is the I with the dot.
