How I remember the kanji for Europe

This kanji is the combination of two elements that brings to mind the BREXIT event in the UK, i.e. the departure of the UK from the EU. The symbology of the EU losing a ‘district’ (the UK) under dramatic circumstances makes this now a relatively unforgettable kanji.


I’ve found trying to incorporate a real-life parallel or association to kanji helps with recall. It’s important to accept that sometimes it takes a few goes to come up with an associative story that ‘works’ for you. Also what works for you might not work for another, but hopefully the above one is fairly universal. I’ll write more about my kanji study approachs or tips in the future.
