So I always try to come up with weird ways to remember vocab.... I decided that to remember білий means white, I'll just think of Billy Idol and his bleached, almost white hair. Bahahahaha.....
Haha, cool! :D
You can also remember that "Belarus" is "white Russia". Or that the Spanish "blanco" has two letters in common with білий. OK, the last one is not so good, Billy is better :D
