Japanese katakana カタカナ
I'm having trouble with Katakana symbols:
ソ シ ツ ノ
so shi tsu no
If you could please help me out with these symbols I would be very happy!

みらいさん、私も日本語を勉強しています。When I learned Katakana, the following is how I pictured some of the mentioned characters:

シ:I thought about someone smiling. If you try to imagine the character as a smiling face, that might help. "SHI is smiling"
ツ:For this, I thought of it as a "tsu"nami. If you picture it, you can think of water falling or surging.
ノ:For this, I always think of a dog's nose.

It's not much, but hopefully that helps.

I think the best way to learn to recognize the symbols is to learn some words that use them.
For example:
ソード is Sword/Soodo as in the famous anime ソードアートオンライン / Sword Art Online
システム is System/Shisutemu
ツイッター is Twitter/Tsuittaa
ノート is Note/Nooto/Notebook
