What other learners are saying

★★★★★ "I've been using Memrise for about two years, studying European Portuguese. I have the paid version - it's a solid learning tool, and it has been my primary resource ever since got it. I find the Learn with Locals feature to be especially useful, more so as my Portuguese improves. My wife and I spent a couple of weeks in Portugal a few months ago, and we were able to handle all of our transactions - stores, restaurants, markets, car rental, etc!" -Voloúre

★★★★★ "I have been using this app for one year to learn Chinese and recommend it. I live in China and using this app has helped me to expand the vocabulary I pick up in my daily life and improve my pronunciation by seeing the pinging tones and by listening to two different speakers model and teach the vocabulary. " - Beth Williams

I agree with what most other users say about the changes and removing the short clips of people pronouncing the words/ sentences. That was the whole reason I got this app to begin with. I know we still hear it, but the videos made it a bit more personable. I also keep getting the same two videos in the daily practice videos, it's really annoying. I know I can chose other videos but if you changed the format, make it work.

12/22/23 the new format is absolutely rubbish. There is no way to do flashcards, practice without the sound on, video playing. I used to do my memrise flashcards, speed rounds between meetings and the like and then work on pronunciation etc when I had quiet. There's no way to access classic mode on my phone. I will not be renewing my subscription. Old: 6/3/20 (4star) Wonderful. Helped me learn Portuguese Portuguese for a trip. All other apps only offer Brazilian Portuguese.

The app literally won't let me in anymore. As soon as I open it, it tells me my courses have been moved. Fine, w/e, I just want to check out what they're offering now, the official Memrise courses. But no, there's literally only one place on the entire screen to click and that's to "learn more" about my courses being moved. There's no "x", no "proceed to the new Memrise", nothing. Uninstalling doesn't work, pressing the back button doesn't work; guess they don't want us to use their app at all!
