Kvothe claims to have learned all of the runes in seven days, a process that takes most students at least a month. Part of his ability to accomplish this can be attributed to a mnemonic song he created himself to help learn them:[2]

"Ule and doch are
Both for binding
Reh for seeking
Kel for finding
Gea key
Teh lock
Pesin water
Resin rock"
―Kvothe's mnemonic song[1]
