Day 59 – Learnt the alphabet backwards

This fun one has been on my list for a while, and after what seems like one of the longest weeks on record, I wanted a quick, silly one to finish the week on a high.

I have to admit, there is no great reasoning behind this one – I don’t drive, so it’s never going to come in useful if I get stopped and have to prove my sobriety – it just seemed like one of those brilliant, useless skills that you can pull out of your hat at parties.

And so, I took to Google, where I first found this lovely woman with a fun little way of learning the alphabet backwards.

This is a great little trick!

I loved this idea, but I actually wanted to learn the letters, not just have it sound like I learned them. This led me to a place I’m sure we’ve all found ourselves at some point – Wikihow.

Using this Wikihow tutorial I found the great tip of grouping the letters together, and learning them in chunks rather than altogether.

This absolutely worked wonders for me, and within ten minutes of learning the sections bit by bit, I was able to recite it fully! Ok, I stumbled a bit here and there, but honestly it was so satisfying the first time I made it all the way through.

Now I have my perfect useless skill, I’m only waiting for the next party invite to show it off.
