Tips to remember the word 'отказаться':
– Think of "otkazatsya" as 'opting out'. Both start with "o" and the sense of refusal or rejection is present in both.
– Break the word into parts: "ot-ka-za-t-sya". "Ot" can imply "from" or "away" and "kazatsya" sounds like "kaz", which might remind you of "chaos" or "confusion", something one might want to avoid.

– 'Отказаться' (otkazatsya) means to decline, reject, or give up something.
– It is a reflexive verb, indicated by the ending "ся".
