A world’s worth of language skills
Learning a language is an intense process, but there are (thankfully) lots of apps out there to help. Memrise draws on a community of language learners and native speakers to create its courses. The app essentially takes over the role of the old-fashioned flash card and helps users build vocabulary. Settings within the app let you decide how much study you want to undertake at a time, and quizzes you accordingly.
The app offers more than 200 languages, but the quality varies depending on the chosen course. Some, for example, have recorded pronunciations, while others are read-only. Depending on what you want to learn, an app with a more consistent curriculum such as Duolingo may better fit your needs. But if you’re looking for something quick and effective to help you memorize words, give Memrise a shot. Free, for iOS and Android devices.
