Native English Speaker Learned to Read Hangul 5/5
By The bots!
I’m able to read anything I see in Korean or Hangul, and pronounce it somewhat okay. One thing though is it teaches very informal Korean that is used between friends rather then the formal for between elders, and strangers you don’t know.
I’m not Multilingual 1/5
By Skynner McGee
This app automatically assumes that you understand whatever language it is they start off with.
I’m American. I speak only American English. I want lessons in German. But, if the words you’re giving me are both foreign, then how do I know what the words mean?
I’m not going to go back and forth to the internet to figure out what word my language lesson app is giving me.
Sorry, but have to uninstall.
It’s useless to me.
While you can’t advance in lessons through the free version of the app, you can do the lessons on the computer then review on the app which I find extremely helpful! I can study the new stuff with the computer then later on I can use the app to review. It’s very convenient, but it would be nice to do the quick review quiz available on the computer in the app as well.

Best free language app, I'm using this for Japanese and I started from absolute no knowledge on sentence structure and now I have obtained a variety of sentences and possessive particles, overall amazing app.
Japanese learner 5/5
I think this app is great because it isn't just one select way of learning. Meaning there are all different courses to choose from if you perhaps don't enjoy the curriculum of one. I have all different courses I follow for Japanese and I can pick up as many courses I want, even outside of language learning!
Easy to learn. 5/5
It makes it really easy to memorize the words and the pronunciation and how to write it.
Have to pay 3/5
By April Lyn
I have been looking for an app that makes you want to play it. This is it. There is a slight story to it and leveling up. It’s great. But I feel like my learning will stop if I do pay and that’s sad. Eventually I might but as a collage kid I can’t afford anything right now.
Fun Fun Fun!!! 5/5
OMG!!! So much fun! It’s addicting. And all the different people they have to show you inflections and what not is what sets it apart from other apps.
Kriolu success! 5/5
This is one of the only learning tools for Cape Verdean Kriolu. Additionally, it’s very user-friendly and accurate. 5 stars
By Delighted in Laredo, Tx
Helpful and easy to learn with memrise
By hind isco
Love the app 5/5
It’s amazing one of the best language learning apps 😁
I'm currently learning Japanese. This app comes in handy! After about a week or so, I've learned basic Hiragana. Along with this app, I also use the book, "Japanese from zero " which is available on Amazon for about $30. Would definitely recommend this app for learning languages!
I tried learning Japanese with this dumb worthless app and it it didn't help at all. It made me memorize the sounds but not the meaning
I love this app!!! 4/5
I almost never pay for an app, especially one as expensive as this. But I tried the free version and loved it so much, I was willing to shell out the dough. The only problems I have with it is recently my speed review isn’t working (which I’m sure they are working on) and I wish there was a way to see all the words I have learned and maybe an option to designate certain words as “difficult words” until I learn them at which time I can turn them off again. Fix those problems and it’s 5 stars for sure!!!

I like this better than Duolingo- but I wish there was more conversational type things.
Great tool, couple it up w/Duolingo and you’re all set! 5/5
I really love this app, it is really great for memorizing vocabulary, but they designed the delivery of the content in a way that allows you to understand grammar and conjugation rules without even realizing it.
Top app for languages :)
MISLEADING FAMILY SHARING 1/5
Says family sharing up to 6 users... BUT that does NOT include in app purchases! In other words, essentially NOTHING to share. Have tried to contact developers multiple times with other questions. No response.
Misleading information 1/5
It’s certainly a well built application, but the ios app is severely limited. On the web (and I hear android) apps you can go past the first section. Don’t waste your time or money on the ios version. I hope they fix this and include the features they advertise as being part of the free version. To be clear, not the chatbots or “meet the natives” or other things offered to pro members. Learning new words should be free as the app store description suggests.
Great App - One suggestion 5/5
By Alfonso Gonzalez Jr.
Memrise is awesome for language learning. I’m already on French 3.
A small suggestion I’d like to see is some statistics, notably a count for the number of hours spent studying. I’m curious on where I stand and probably others feel the same way too.
Was great, but Super glitchy now 2/5
This app is great but several of the latest updates has caused the listening part to say the same answer for all choices. At first ok I can live with this but now it marks me wrong!!!! They give me the same answer three times and one is not correct? They need to fix this for the crazy price I pay every year.
Best App ever!!
I love memorize 5/5
By YUNA THE UNICORN❤️
I love memorize so much it is educational and fun I can already speak two languages Japanese and English.I can speak Japanese because my mom is Japanese my dad is a American but if you are reading this totally get it it is also free😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
I L O V E I T . ! 5/5
By joce_ the _ learner
It helps me soo much.💙 learning a new language has never been more fun.😥✨❤️
By AnnieKin Skywalker
Refreshing from the tried and true DuoLingo. Both programs are great but this is new and refreshing.
It helps me speak any kind of lauguge
Free version isn't really free 1/5
It's sad. This app use to be the best app I found to learn Mandarin Chinese. However, the recent updates have put up a pay wall that makes the free version useless. There's currently a limit on how far you can progress in the course before having to pay. So why even offer a free version?
I would be willing to pay for premium but am so off put by their horrible customer experience that I don't trust them to not ruin the premium experience as well.
Guess I'll just have to go back to duoLingo
Best app ever! 5/5
By It's big daddy D
I’m 13 and I’ve learned a lot of mandarin(Chinese)in like 24 hours and I have BAD adhd and it’s so easy to learn. Like other apps I’ve had it was 100 dollars a year this one is 29 dollars a year. And easier. So thank you app creators!!!
Can’t see “Other Languages” option anymore. 4/5
Just as it says. I want to see if you have Atlantean but can’t find it.
Please Fix 1/5
There use to be way more learning options other than language. Now it's just showing me the basic languages.
Great app for learning Spanish 5/5
This learning method is working well for me for Spanish. I’ve gone from complete beginner to being able to almost intermediate level. I can hold a basic conversation and my vocabulary is extensive. Highly recommend this app. I am using it in combination with Duolingo but I actually prefer Memrise’s approach to teaching languages.
This is such a great app! My Latin class uses it and it is a great way to learn quick! Not only vocabulary, but grammar as well! Better than Duolingo👍🏻
Not really worth it frankly. 1/5
This app costs money to learn anything past the first 15 minutes. It should not be marketed as free (or in my case show up as the second search for “free language app”). And all the glowing reviews from before should be removed because let’s be real, if it was free I’d give it 5 stars too.
As for lessons, it literally only teaches words individually and out of context (like just “to sit” “also” “Apple”). In my book both this pricing and way of teaching is far inferior than Duolingo.
Awesome app 5/5
This is a awesome app! Best language app!
Used to work fine, now has bug 3/5
Memrise is a useful app for memorizing words, albeit the translations in some courses are lacking. I was doing a course to memorize german verbs, and whoever created the list didn’t think to explain the difference between “heiraten” and “verheiraten” for instance. Anyway, it looks as though you can’t select courses created by users anymore so I guess that’s a moot point. My biggest gripe though is that for the past two versions, there’s been a bug in one of the exercises, the one where you select the correct audio out of three audio files. Now the exercise has three audio files of the same exact word spoken by two or three different speakers. The app apparently thinks just one of these audio files is correct even though it’s the same word being spoken. It’s frustrating because I can’t even skip these audio tests anymore, so I’m forced to repeat the same word that I already know just because I didn’t pick the right “random” choice. I hope this bug gets fixed soon.
Email does not open the app 4/5
By I need my points back
I get email reminding me there are words to review. If I click the link, it takes me to web asking logging in instead of app. Please add universal links support.
This Is AMAZING 5/5
I love this app. I can learn different languages and they make it fun. I love how they put videos of people saying the word. I am currently trying to learn 5 languages and they have just inspired me to learn more. Sometimes I would practice languages I already know and it’s really good practice. I would really recommend this app if you are trying to learn a new language or practice a language.
Removed most of the tools for non-Pro members including downloading for offline use. 1/5
By Should be freeware
This app my be improving, but only for Pro members. For everyone else, the app has become more and more limiting. I live in a rural area and study on the bus, but now I can’t because the internet signal isn’t strong enough.
Great But . . . 1/5
I have so very much loved using this app over the last 12 months UNTIL it came time to update payment details and I discovered that they have made it virtually impossible to do so! What the hell guys, I am desperate to pay you my $29,99 again, but apparently you have absolutely no interest interest in helping me do that.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Memrise. On the website, at least. For some reason, on the app, it won’t let me get past the launchpad even though I’m beyond the launchpad on the website! So inconvenient. If they fix it, I’d definitely bring this rating up because I loved it on the one level I could use it.
Amazed how good it is 4/5
By Pie master doge luver
I want to learn how to speak Japanese so u got apps there is a lot of good apps but this one is different, i would like for it to have were you can go back what you learned, if there is something for that ill figure it out for now idk but this is very good.
Love it!!! 5/5
Oh no 1/5
There is something wrong with the app, I don't remember if it's wrong on the website as well, but when you listen to the words to match the sound with the written word, all of the sounds are the same. So, you have to guess which one to hit, and you only have a third chance to get it right and two thirds chance to get it wrong. This is on a non-Memrise made course, btw.
Great app definitely need pro 4/5
By Que Key
It’s a great app. Going into it I did Japanese first, among many I wanted to learn, I was very quick at picking up the the visual words and listening to them say it. I wasn’t good with the written characters and because the one thing I wish it had was something that focused on just the characters. However I used the free version so they just might have it and if they do I’ll change my rating from 4 to 5 stars. Definitely something worth buying a pro subscription especially if your serious about learning a new language.
Using alongside Minna No Nihongo 1/5
I study at Columbia and am finishing up second year (i) of Japanese. This app is good for memorizing vocabulary, though it has limitations. For example, it doesn’t display the Kanji for a lot of the words in the Minna No Nihongo decks. I haven’t seen furigana in this app yet either, which would be helpful regardless of your Japanese level. Exposure is exposure.
With that being said, it uses its own SRS method and it seems pretty helpful. It’s much less monotonous than Quizlet or Anki. I use all three though, and I suggest you do too.
If you’re at the very start, I give this app 5 stars for its assistance when I was learning kana. Definitely worth a try either way.
EDIT - Where did access to all the language lessons go? You know, the user created ones? Without them, this app is hit it and quit it and not a long term relationship. Enjoy your 1 star review until you bring that back. I’ll be pleading my case for a refund now.
Fun way to learn language 5/5
By Cornish Alabaster Ferret
Very engaging, the lessons are pretty simple but they allow learners to grasp the basics.
By Spanish teacher 2.1
Great app to learn any language with. Educational and not only do you learn how to say it you learn how to spell it.
By Yahweh's adopted son
It's very helpful in telling you where you went wrong and explaining why.
The lessons are good, but the fact that you have to pay is painful. Can I just educate myself without having to pay for anything? Knowledge will cost you cash baby.
