  • Difficult Words

    By satan's roommate
    I’ve had this complaint for a while, and it’s concerning the difficult words. Because I get a word wrong once, does not necessarily mean I’m having a hard time getting it. For it to be considered a difficult word, I should have gotten it wrong at least two times.
  • Good but

    By sarah i want to
    They charge me to play or I cants learn anymore but it’s great
  • Had to do for class

    By Bojo321567
    Teacher made us get this and person with most points after one week gets out of a quiz. Knowing that made it hard to put down because gettin our of a quiz in college is great. Now it’s become addictive to play wanting to learn
  • Choose this one

    By Carettasam
    I have downloaded and tried all the Spanish apps and this one is by far the best. There are several things I like about it: 1) It has lots of repetition and review of previous lessons, which is really what you need to learn a language. I have taken a Spanish class and used apps and they want to move you along so fast that you forget what you learned before. 2) The quality of the videos with local people is better and holds your attention more than any of the other apps, and gives you multiple different dialects to hear and the body language that goes along with it. This is probably the most natural way to learn other than actually being with people speaking Spanish. 3) They give you the basic meaning translation and the literal translation which I really appreciate. Even Spanish textbooks will not do this which I find frustrating. They want you to memorize the meaning without actually understanding the words you are saying. I feel if you want to understand a language you need to know exactly what you are saying. Thank you! Nobody elae does this. 4) The subscription fee is reasonable, and they don’t constantly harass you. They give you a good sample before they ask you to subscribe. There are lots of other apps that charge more and are way less quality. I am really happy I found this one.
  • Awesome

    By Carolina Bermeo
    Way better than Duolingo. I still can't believe most of the studying tools are free. I've been using this app for the past 2 years to learn Italian and my boyfriend has been using it for Spanish. He can hold conversations with my family now and I can understand almost anything in Italian.

    By AddisonGabe
    Memrise is typically great. I am a pro subscriber, so I pay $60 a year for it. But occasionally they have silly bugs that they release with updates that impact learning. For the last month, there has been an error where words are being “completed” 2-3x faster than they should, so I’m not actually getting the repetition I need to learn anything new. I’ve submitted an error request weeks ago but nothing has changed. PLEASE FIX THIS OR REIMBURSE ME!!!!
  • Love it!

    By ERice812
    I love Memrise! It’s easy and fun!
  • Can't add user-created decks from the app

    By emh1234565
    So if I want to install a user-created deck (decks created by the community are much higher quality than the official Memrise decks), I have to go to the website, on a desktop browser, and add them from there. I can't add community-made decks from the app itself. Useless.
  • Thank you

    By VforVictoria:):)
    Love the app, actually helps you learn!!:):)
  • Terrible after an fantastic beginning

    By Cai_Zhou
    Many trainings have no phonetic to Chinese characters. I, to this day, do not know how to pronounce "Woman" in Chinese. I constantly get pulled back by the app to learn that word again, and it NEVER says the word in Chinese ever. This happens in a lot of sections of the app for mandarin language. If a sections works, it works 100% all the time, if it fits not work, it never works the whole section through. Not one word gets ever pronounced, thus you never know how to actually day it. It only makes the ding, bling, ring sounds when you click something, but never days a Chinese word so you know how to pronounce it! This is highly frustrating...
  • memrise

    By someone (:3)
    in the first language learning app i used, it didn’t seem to be very effective. one of my friends recommended me memrise and learning a language seems so easy. this app has been very effective and i haven’t been using it very long. i definitely recommend this to people trying to learn new languages.
  • Great application

    By jay_paws
    This application is really great for learners the application only has a few selected languages but you can simply add languages if you add your username and password into the website version of Memrise and you can add languages from the website into the application I have a few of Esperanto and Toki Pona And I will add more in the future
  • Great app , please fix grammarbot

    By waitout
    Hell guys its a great app, but could you please fix grammarbot, its always appear in the “next up” suggestion, and I mean always nothing but grammarbot, As well in the last update you promised to teach holiday season words, but where can I find them is it some special menu, or was not for all languages? Thanks, its great app and you are doing great work never regret money I spent!
  • Overlord

    By Sbviq
    Thanks for getting rid of ziggy. Could you please bring back the old ranking system? I was almost a meminance, and one day wanted to be an overlord :) “level 14” just isn’t as cool/motivational.
  • Daily asking to subscribe

    By Sleegar27
    I would give this a five star but the app constantly throughout using it ask you to subscribe. To answer no, it also put something negative that you have to press with the no. Example; No, I would rather learn at a slower pace. I don’t appreciate that I have to answer no this way, instead of just answering no. You have no choice to answer it that way to be able to continue to use the app. I don’t need to pay for a subscription to learn at a fast pace! I have other free avenues to learn. I also don’t appreciate having to answer “no” on a daily basis to use the app. This app is part of the required course I’m taking or I wouldn’t use it. I had thought of buying the subscription but will not just because of all the pressure and negative way this company tries to get you to subscribe.
  • iPhone update is awesome

    By EllenTrice
    I like this app over the app I was using. Very inviting and bright, keeps learning up beat
  • very good

    By Raminfl
    nice to start , and best way to examine your word skills. Specially for Toefl and IELTS.
  • I love it!

    By longlady246
    This app is excellent to me because it not only tells you the words and what it means, but it also repeats it a bunch of times so you can memorize it . Again, this app helped me a lot. Now I know how to speak Chinese :)
  • Ads in notifications

    By pseudopsyche
    It sends you ads in notifications to try to get you to upgrade to a paid plan, which is completely unacceptable. Notifications are not the place for garbage like that. Nothing else about an app matters if they value their users so little as to push notifications containing ads to your phone.
  • I think I’m learning Japanese, I really think so!

    By JustaRottenGirl
    Wow- just wow!!! This app has a stunning amount of tools and features. At $10 a month this is so worth it. I’ve been using this app here and there for a year and in addition to my basic previous knowledge of Japanese I’ve come much rather than I ever thought I would. I can read words and short phrases and understand raw manga and labels on some food times much better despite not being fluent. I’ve always wanted to visit Japan for its food, culture, and natural beauty, and I hope one day this will aid in that trip. I also adore the language- it’s a fun challenge and has many subtleties to enjoy. I love that Memrise is super responsive to feedback- I’m sure it was a coincidence but I mentioned incorporating grammar questions into the classic review and boom! The next time I used the app, they were there! 🎉🥳 They’re even doing a beta grammar section in addition to the org. conversation-bots. 🙏🏼 You can also download the courses for offline-learning! I can’t say how amazing that is in itself 👏🏼 And another great feature is using the camera to see objects wherever you are labeled in the targeted language you’re learning. Don’t expect to be fluent or dishing out full conversations after a few months. Just play with it- enjoy it- I use it weekly for 10min or so and I’m still learning stuff. Of course the more you use it the better. Combine it with other apps that focus on writing hiragana/katakana as well because those are precursors to learning proper kanji.
  • I’m moving to Norway 7 months.

    By Norsk76
    I will commit to 30 minutes to 1 hour a day. Hopefully I come back with a 5 star rating! Takk!
  • Finally

    By McCaskill89
    It’s about time I learned Spanish. Their techniques really makes them stick.
  • I very like

    By turcocs
  • This App is THE BEST!!!!!

    By Devuh
    Last weekend I found this app, and I was BLOWN AWAY by its ways of teaching language!!!! I was learning French in school but I wanted to learn it much faster. This was the PERFECT match! With the videos of people saying words to help you understand them, and all of its other help to make you understand the language you're learning, it is 100% one of the BEST EFFECTIVE ways you could learn a language. If you get this app at the beginning of the year, it's 50% OFF!!!! To end this review, I'd say it's EVEN BETTER THAN BABBEL!

    By ajaksjhggwhqjwoficinhskajc
    Perfect app for learning new languages
  • Pay only

    By Geoff.M
    App only contains one lesson (10 words). Everything else is paywalled. Don't have the money to gamble on finding out what the rest of the app is like.
  • I’ve tried many for Russian, this one works best for me!

    By Rkrogstad
    This app, has it almost 100% mastered for how I need to learn. I’m so grateful that I can now practice Russian with my Russian friends and they help me to perfect my speech. This app has helped me by teaching the alphabet so I can actually read Russian. (I may not know what it means, but I can read it!) I highly recommend!!
  • Cool app.

    By Tyler Resch
    I’m learning French so I can get a head start on my high school language courses (Aged 13, 8th grade) and I am also learning Japanese because I think it’d be fun.
  • Impressed

    By debsterdebster
    This App is a good basis for beginning Spanish. That being said, I was taught Colombian Spanish and some of the Mexican terms are counter intuitive to my previous learning.
  • Please make other options available

    By Aley.MG>Apple
    I am a new 18 year old college student and wanted to be able to learn new languages on my own time and this app looked promising. For the most part it is. I can say that i have learned some helpful words and romanization for the words, however, as amazing as this app is I find it incredibly frustrating that I cannot proceed without paying absurd amounts of money per month. I signed up for a free trial which in my opinion should mean that i have free reign of the app for the duration of a week. Unfortunately I am only able to take the first lessen, everything else is locked and if I wish to move on an add pops up on my screen to pay for the pro version. I understand that it is a way for the makers to get paid for the app but if the app is free then I should be able to believe that it will stay free. As an educational app that I know many people are using for their own benefit and growth there should be a way for individuals to use the app without having to pay so much. Even if that means that they can only do a lesson each day at least they can proceed to learn, and if they want to do more like an entire section then they could pay a small fee around about 5 to 10 dollars. I just find it slightly unfair that this app is shown as a free learning app and after being on it for 10 minutes it wants you to pay 20, 30, 50 dollars. The app is great but that main factor is what makes me dislike it immensely.

    I have used your free app on Android a while back and now on iPad. Lesson one locked at end. Is the only way to continue to pay now?
  • Great design, some limitations/problems

    By Allyrion
    I’ve been using Memrise for a while now and I think it’s a great platform. I think the gamification is amazing for language learning in particular and as many have said, it’s addictive for something that would be otherwise tedious. I’m even trying to make a course for students to go alongside a college course that I’m teaching myself. However this last update has been a bit annoying. First off, entering a writing question with nothing skips it. There’s no way to get it wrong without entering multiple characters first (still skips with one or two) which is annoying. Most of time if I draw a blank, I want to get it wrong and see the right answer. Skipping it just moves it to the next review session where I still have to fail it. If this skip feature needs to be added, it should be a separate button. Secondly, there’s seemingly a new bug with the last update. In the course I’m doing, the information that should show up after you answer correctly is not showing up. I’ve confirmed nothing has changed on the course creator side, Memrise just isn’t showing the field that is supposed to show after the correct answer is entered. Lastly, I know this probably won’t change but the course creator side is as poor as the user end is good. Will we ever get to add audio in bulk? If I add to things to a database, why can’t I move them into course levels in bulk? I think Memrise is really a great platform and there’s a few issues from making it perfect. It’s strange that development seems to go into everything but these very common customer requests. At the very least, please fix the issues from the last update. I will update this review to 4 stars if those are fixed at least. Seeing the information after a right answer is imperative to the base function of the program!
  • Very good

  • Really good app

    By Vida Loves Latin Men
    This app is helpful because I took four years of Spanish in high school. It doesn’t provide super simple phrases/words that a beginner would need to know. I like how they blend former lessons with new lessons. This app provides great review.
  • Awesome!

    By pjr702
    This is great! I had 10 years of German in school (middle school through college) and because I haven’t used the language in 30+ years, I have forgotten almost everything. I just tried the advanced class, and I’m amazed how much is coming back to me. Great reinforcement program!

    By Hezmana
    If you try and only use the free version, you are continually presented with upgrade to pro version screens. Interestingly you can get two different prices for the upgrade depending on where you encounter the screen.

  • There’s a bug in the bonus round of pronunciation

    By Great sorry
    I never got them right in the bonus round of Pronunciation, even though I’m pronouncing the words right. The app was just never able to compare the two pronunciations to recognize the difference.
