I don't know if you use mnemonics a lot when learning vocabulary, I do. I'd try to think of a racoon holding a map ( mapa) and for the second one, it's a bit trickier but maybe think of a pile of "H's" ( Hache).

I always forget whether the last consonant is supposed to be "silent" or not (if it was, then it would be pronounced [kiˈɻut̪ɯ] in isolation and before a consonant and [kiˈɻut̪] before a vowel).
