Great There's other good apps out there that teach you the words but Memrise helps you learn to understand the language kind of like how a child might by being immersed (children learn their native languages by hearing it, not by diagramming sentences). I did decide to withhold the 5th star however, just because it's not so easy to find the ideal course for your personal needs, it's a double edged sword because there are many many courses.
Really great app Learning languages doesn't come easily to me at all. I have tried very hard to learn my mother tongue with my mum at home but it has proved to be a great challenge. This app helps me learn at my own pace and I can learn whenever I have spare time. The speed review and the other different tactics used to aid learning really helps to keep the words firmly in mind.
Educational It works so efficiently and effectively to aid in the learning of language. No ads, easily used anywhere. I love the mems that allow you to draw a memorabble association with the words. I have found educational benefits, for once technology has served a valuable purpose! Bravissima!
Absolute Best!!! Needs the ability to skip specified lists within a coarse. I hate the freaking kanji constantly coming up when learning new words in my JLPT coarse. I'm not ready for kanji yet. :( --- other than that is a fantastic app!!! Absolute best I've found actually. :D
A lazy persons ideal app I am the most unmotivated person at times, but this app really does keep you engaged. The bite sized approach to learning words really helps to keep me engaged, and I've learned 40 words in about a week. Thoroughly recommend this as a great tool to get started on a new language.
No visual questions Images should be a no brainer in a app about memorising, but there aren't present at all, only in mems which you only get to see once.
Our sacrifice to the weather gods worked :sunny:! But some stuff dramatically overheated (including a few devs) and we had to work on some fixes to get the app back to its cool self:
-The mems you pick are no longer melting away into oblivion.
-Auto detect now works, particularly in the Russian Alphabet course.
-Affected devs were given hydrating drinks and a desk fan.
If any bugs survived the big heat wave of 2016, report them to firstname.lastname@example.org, we’ll have great balls of fire ready.
