How can I remember abstract phrases?

Abstract Phrases or information like the student remembering the names of the twelve cranial nerves. They are numbered. So, the first one is Olfactory. So were going to put a number to the olfactory. I want you to see a huge old factory broken down with a big number one hanging from the door swinging back and fourth. Ok? Two is optic. That logical. Two eyes right? But when you come too number ten which is Vagus, the Vagus nerve, you think of, "I won ten thousand dollars in Vegas". Ten Vagus. But nine is the glossopharyngeal. When you think of the glossopharyngeal, glossopharyngeal number nine. Think of a nine ounce glass with fringe hanging from it and it's filled with ale. When you put that together, Glass, fringe and ale, you get the ninth cranial nerve which is gloss-o-pharyngeal, abstract to concrete, something known. Have fun. You can memorize them in two minutes, three minutes time.
