The costs... 2/5
A lot of people in the "most helpful tab" have five stars and aren't mentioning that the app is basically 1/50 of all the information it has! (probably lower) i liked the app until i got past the first launchpad in german. It made me quite mad actually, that i can't learn much more from this app even though i have 100% german relatives who's first language is german still can't teach me everything. It really disappointed me. At least it's only $30 a year right?
this app is awesome
It's Useful 5/5
Really what the title says.
Me ah ayudado mucho, es muy buena, buen diseño de la app.
Solo un poco cara la membresía
Other than the fact that you have to pay for most of their features. I’m just trying to learn a language to impress my girlfriend
Really bad!!! 1/5
The interface is impressive, having the possibility to talk with native speakers is a privilege because you can learn a lot... but it's bad enough that you have or have to agree to buy the course after learning 10 words. You must or you must. You don't have the possibility to continue exploring, and access to the course only allows you to access a basic language. BASIC!.
This one really helps 5/5
By corporate mac
Traveling to China multiple times per year and this is the best learning program I have found. I have tried other few and very expensive programs but this one was the first to help build from the basics.
Learning with natives is excellent because the spoken Chinese slams multiple words together.
The practice routines, review and difficult words, are extremely effective.
Only improvement would be the ability to eliminate certain vocabulary or symbols from practice. I don’t really want to spend so much time learning to read Chinese, just understand the spoken language.
Great value overall and should be a first purchase when starting to learn.

Really helpful and exceeded my expectations.😊
So helpful 5/5
A great language tool, and fun
This is a great app! I love the video clips! I would have loved to start off with the the basics of French also but in all it is a really great app for French.
Great app! 5/5
I love this app! They have great exercises and videos from native speakers!
I don’t like to write reviews often but this app make it so easy to learn a new language.
Repetition is key! 5/5
I love this advanced flash card type system! It allows me to practice through repetition, in a way that is more interactive than writing the same words/sentences over and over in a notebook.
I’m using it to learn korean, and although the Memrise korean course relies too much on romanization for me, I found a course that follows along with my Talk to Me in Korean textbooks. It is the perfect supplement to my books! Through repetition, I am retaining what I have already read in my textbooks.
more enjoyable than (already great) website, but: 4/5
The app is near flawless except for two things: there is no easy way to view the progress of your daily goals, and there is no ability to ignore terms. These are vital functions that require the user to use a desktop when the app would be otherwise perfect as a standalone.
Best english app Ive ever seen thank you a lottttttt<3
It was great until 3/5
Until just now, when the question required you to choose the words from a menu all the correct words were there. But the last question did not. It still required the correct word so I got it wrong.
Great App 5/5
Very great apps no adds and helps you learn a lot of languages
Love this app
HIGHLY RECOMMEND 5/5
Definitely something you can really learn from. It’s so conversational as well! Not those stuff you will never use EVER.
Not free as advertised 1/5
Although this app is advertised to provide free content as well as additional features with their “pro version”, the free content only allows you to complete level 1. After which, all other levels are locked.
This is rather unfortunate and very misleading.
It is very helpful
Good and simple 5/5
Really good app. Simple with different courses
You have to pay to do everything!! 1/5
By Jasper and opal
You have to pay to do everything. It’s dumb, I’ve have been learning Korean then it stopped me right in the middle of a lesson and asked to pay $30 to keep going. But really, they should need to pay for games, but not for the actual lesson. It’s a free app for a reason. I can’t finish and I downloaded this stupid app for nothing, thanks.
So far 5/5
Very good 5/5
Great app love it so far
Can’t imagine it being better 5/5
This is honestly the best app for learning the basics of any language. And it is great fun!
Better than Duolingo 4/5
The app is better than Duolingo in that you get literal translations and native language pronunciation.
A place for improvement would be allowing users to report problems within specific exercises. It’s frustrating when there are two equally valid answers, even when I get it right. For example, in the Danish lessons, sometimes it wants “god” as the answer, and sometimes it wants “godt.”
Really helps for the most part 5/5
By Kyome Aka Kyo
I am happy I did it
Luv it 5/5
It’s a good app if u wanna learn a new language
Saludos desde Tijuana Mex. 5/5
Contentísimo con esta aplicación, mi alemán a progresado bastante.
Love it 5/5
The app has been a great complementing my ongoing private language lessons and helping to learn new words. I have been trying to use it every day for 45 mins
Videos have sound. Turning audio off should turn off videos, too. 1/5
It seems the developers and powers that be continue to ignore users.
I have audio and audio tests turned off. Nevertheless, in courses where videos are available, those videos still play. Never mind that audio is off - and for a reason - the video still plays and you still have to get the word right, even though you have to have sound to hear the word.
Developers and powers that be at Memrise, here’s a tip. Those videos have sound. If I have audio turned off, you shouldn’t be serving me content that requires the use of audio. This is a fairly simple concept I would think.
I have reconciled myself to the worst design you guys could have created. I have no choice but to live with that, as awful as it is. But please, use some common sense.
Edited to add: Memrise has had a bug regarding sound for years. Sometimes, the sound works, sometimes it doesn't. It changes from one iteration to another, from one device to the next. Right now, on the iPhone 8+ running the latest iOS and Memrise version, sound doesn't work.
I've reported this bug in the past. I was dismissed with the excuse that it couldn't possibly be Memrise's fault. Sound works in every single app that I've tried.
I totally recommend this app is the best it is the best I totally recommend
Premium offline features DO NOT WORK AS ADVERTISED 2/5
Review is for premium features only. I shelled out for a language app I could use while commuting without regular network connection. Memrise advertised this feature for premium users, but it does not work. Fully downloaded lessons CANNOT be accessed without an internet connection. Downloading simply reduces network traffic. VERY misleading. DO NOT buy for this purpose.
Bought a pro version in a first day. Happy
Love it 5/5
One tweak needed 4/5
Still waiting for the ability to ignore a word inside the app.
Good App 5/5
It is a great fantastic super duper cool app that helps me keep up with German. Ever since I got back from Germany I have used this app to not lose my German.
It is great for learning 4/5
It is an excellent app if you want to take good lessons and it works at your pace.
I am currently taking a French lesson on it and multiple apps. I started with this and I already know a lot more.
Best Language App!!! 5/5
I have tried many free language apps out there and I have to say that this is the best I have found so far! Absolutely love it and I love the style of repetition. I have been using this to learn a couple of languages and this app has allowed me to retain lots of new words. Merci!!! 감 사 합 니 다 !!!
Awesome app just a little boring 😕
Outstanding App 5/5
By Bantock's Ghost
This is an outstanding app. Not only do you learn vocabulary, you lear grammar, as well!
Amazing app the makes learning fun!
Great But... 4/5
I’m trying to learn German but when I want to move on to the next planet it wants me to buy pro! We don’t have enough money to buy it. I give it four out of five stars😐😐😐
Really fun game! 5/5
I have always wanted to learn Japanese language , so this is a great opportunity too.
By Mrs. Night Owl
I enjoy the application and would love to go pro but the cost is too extensive.
Took Japanese, oh, I don’t know, some 23 years ago, and I’m over the moon to have found an APP that offers it. Well played. The app is phenomenally developed!
This app is truly amazing and has helped me a lot at work already. Worth every cent.
