Que vs Qué

Here's a mnemonic to keep them straight in your head

How to remember Que vs Qué?

First, definitions.

Que (without accent) is translated as "that"

Qué (with accent) is translated as "what"

So how do we remember which is which?

Here's my mnemonic:

When someone speaks with a heavy accent, they can be hard to understand - and you might even respond with "What?"

Therefore, the Qué with an accent is "What" - because a thick accent will make you say - "What?"
