Best learning app 5/5
By Jeilin R.
It’s a fun learning app and you can understand different languages in a fun way.
Is good 5/5
The best application
Videos have sound. Turning audio off should turn off videos, too. 1/5
This is still a bug, oh powers that be at Memrise. Your app still functions this way, despite numerous updates and bug fixes since I last posted this review and reported this as a bug.
Videos still have sound. If I have sound turned off, YOU SHOULDN'T PLAY VIDEO EITHER.
This is a bug.
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.
I absolutely love this app! 5/5
This app defiantly helps you learn more of a language for free! It’s fun to learn and to memorize basic terms. This app will definitely help with my communication skills
Great for students. 4/5
Memrise is basically how I’ve been surviving any class thats memory intensive. Like history for memorizing dates, and especially languages. I love the app and concept, I’ve been using it for years. Only reason why I won’t give it five stars is because it COULD be better, like having MORE study options, games, and tests. Also, there’s this one particularly annoying bug where I’ll update a course that I’ve created on the computer and the app itself won’t update.....ever... so that’s kind of problematic. Great app though nonetheless.
It is VERY helpful!! 5/5
I’ve only been on it for like 10 minutes and I learned so many things
not what I wanted 1/5
Don’t click on a link that says something about a 20% discount thinking you will be viewing an explanation. In my case it just automatically charged my card.....and without the discount. I have written to them 2x without a reply so far. I was searching for an app that might work for both me and my friend who had a stroke.
Mistakes can happen but this is pretty obnoxious and not even replying seems pretty cold to me.
Tried to contact them again with no results.
memrise you should fix the button that automatically signs you up without any explanation or discount at all.
If I could give you no stars at all I would.
My boyfriend’s family speaks Bosnian and this is one of the only free apps that will help me learn it so easily! I love the setup and methodology behind this style of learning - type, listen, choosing. But please include more audio for each level so I can hear the pronunciation more. :)
Best app ever 5/5
I want to learn all kinds of languages and because of this app I can do it with ease! I give this app five stars!👍🏼❗️
Effective, but slow 2/5
The lack of an ability to test out is rather annoying, so you’re stuck at the beginning regardless of what skill you may have, and the fact that most lessons must be paid for instead of free is an instant turn-off.
It's good but you have to pay around $20 for more advanced stuff. If you are only looking for the basics then this app is good. If you don't feel like paying then I suggest another app.
But it should cost half the price, I mean it's learning and if you really wanted, you could just learn online(safari/browser)
Great app 4/5
This is a great app but I would like a little less push to get you to buy premium. Also the menu is hard to navigate but in all good app
THE LITERAL BEST 5/5
Geodmorgen every one lets tack a mpmommt to thank Memrise such an amazing app. Pro0st!
The Listening Questions. 4/5
By Karlee G.
On the app, the listening questions seem to have the same answers for all 3 options. It isnt like that on the website.
My only compliant. Its a really good app and website. You dont even NEED the premium to learn pretty quickly. Very fun, very cute app. ❤️
Easy and clear 4/5
I just started using Memrise for the 2nd time, it's easy and clear and the audio and visual cues are both really helpful. I'm hoping to learn enough to get by on a trip to Italy in a few months.
By f me daddy
Great already know French
Not as good as previous versions 3/5
Ive been using this for quite some time to learn German. When I first downloaded and began using it, I really loved the repetition for learning new words. Lately; however, I’ve noticed an issue when it displays the three sound icons and you listen to the native speaker and select the correct response but Memrise is saying it’s wrong. I know der Apfel is “the apple” and die Äpfel is “the apples”, yet on something as simple as this Memrise insists my answer is wrong. It’s so bad that no matter which of the three you select, it counts it as incorrect. This is very annoying and wastes time in the lesson.
My issue is the same as mentioned by user Ashram12 in their February review.
Please fix this.
By learner of language
It help me learn other languages a lot quicker then I expect!
Bait and switch 1/5
No free. I don’t mind paying, just be up front about it. Everything is locked after lesson one. Sick of the deception!
Really great 5/5
Has that bottom bar to skip past their ads and prompts to go pro.
Two thumbs up!
Everything Locked Bug 1/5
Everything beyond Level 1 courses are totally locked down under a bug that after some quick googling has been around for ages that the developer hasn’t gotten around to fixing. I can access courses beyond level one on Android or a web browser but not my iOS device. Wanted to use Memrise as a review app but it’s totally useless in it’s current form.
The ‘casual’ nature of the developer’s change log, knowledge center and general write-ups is also equally infuriating and less-than-helpful in almost all my circumstances.
Great for my students but one main problem 3/5
By Can I get a What what?
I use this for vocab learning and review for students and myself. I like making my own courses. I hate though that memrise doesn’t let you find these courses with your smartphone. It’s a major problem. You have to log on website. Otherwise you only find memrise official courses. And they don’t even let you complete them! They just want you to pay all the time!
Great, but one bug that hasn’t been fixed yet. 4/5
Great app, I have learned a lot from it (I am learning German), but one of the courses I am doing has a bug in it (A1 German). On most lessons (learn or review) it will give you three choices that are the same and if you pick any of them, most of the time it counts it as wrong and goes into your difficult words. Otherwise the app is great, and I like learning from it. If you could just fix that bug then I would rate it five stars because it is a great app.
I LOVE IT 5/5
By PINK TOTORO
This app is helping me so much I completely enjoy it, WOW.
A good app except to do most things you need to pay for a subscriprion 😒
By Obssesed Unicorn
Well I learned Some Korean words in 3 days hahhhha I thought it would be impossible but I DID YAY
The best😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁 5/5
By Lila loolyberryfun
This has helped me learn french so well I can now spell so many words in french and I'm really good at it. I learned 20 new words today and I already memorized 14. This is such a good game for a person looking to learn a new language.
Annoying and overhyped 1/5
I saw all the positive reviews on this app and thought hey let’s give this a try. I completed level one and discovered all other levels were locked which is supposedly a bug. This app is just annoying with its restrictions. I’m disappointed to say the least.
By Ben Taha
Thank you in all languages of world.
Bug report 4/5
Really like the app, but when I turn off the audio tests during a session it just keeps giving me audio tests and removes the button to turn it off. Really great structure and content, if I could reliably use it in public without having to guess on the audio questions it’d be even better
Good, but... 3/5
By Alyson 💕
This app is great in letting me learn French, especially for next year when I need to learn a new language; it will be easier with Memrise. My only problems are that I’ve been on the app for 10 days in a row for at least thirty minutes per day and it says my highest streak in four. I’m getting no more points, either. I know this app isn’t what it’s about but if it continues I will be cancelling my Pro membership and deleting the app. Again, I use it daily. Another problem is that o constantly have 10 notifications, while in the app it says “All caught up! Would you like to move on?” Or something, I don’t know. This is also annoying because I have a red dot on my screen consistently. Please fix these problems.
VERY expensive.... 3/5
I LOVE the Memrise app a lot but I feel like the fees are REALLY expensive. I feel like it’s less money to pay for a real life tutor than the app. I would be willing to pay for the app’s premium features if the prices were lowered by like... A LOT. Other than that it’s a useful app.
Perfect way to practice and learn a new language
I love this app! It’s helping me remember my native tongue which will further help my job opportunities and answer my relatives in Spanish rather than Span-glish!
Duolingo and other apps can help you learn french as well but I really feel like memrise has made learning fun for me, I enjoy coming home and learning instead of dreading more work and procrastinating. 10/10, take this from someone who has tried Rosetta Stone!
Love it!!! 5/5
This app combines learning any language of your choice and pure awesomeness. I think it is so fun to play when I am bored and want to do something productive, because it teaches me dozens of languages! Personally, I love learning and being able to talk to people, so this combines both assets. Honestly, if you are looking for a great language app, get this one!!! 🤗
Pick this Over DUOLINGO 5/5
This app has helped learn over 100 words FLUENTLY in under 1 hour. This is a really good app and it’s definitely worth the premium package. Even with the free package, you’ll learn something.
FIX THIS PLEASE 1/5
I would love this app if they didn’t lock learning new words after level one!! I can do it on my computer but would prefer the convenience of my phone. 🤬🤬
Totally fun and easy 5/5
I love this app because it uses a variety of learning methods and repetition to help you learn. You get the information forward and backward. I feel like I am actually learning the words and understanding.
fantastic and cute 5/5
fun design and premise, the pacing and format are a lot better than other language apps in my opinion
Amazing App 4/5
I think this app is really easy to follow. As a kid I’ve been trying to learn a new language and Memrise is really helping out.
Great App but I can’t move forward 2/5
This Apple is really great at first! I love the theme, the colors, the way it allows you to learn the language. I am just trying to catch up on my French. I have passed the basic launch pad level with flying colors and it won’t let me advance forward into the next vocabulary unless I buy the premium. I have read that other people have been having this problem. It’s a shame, too, because I really enjoy using this app. Now I feel like I need to find a different learning system because this won’t let me move forward. :( Enjoy it while you can!
Latest browser is making me get wrong answers 1/5
Latest update messed things up. I’m doing an audio exercise. The English clue is “owner”... all three audio choices say “dueno” in Spanish. Any of them are correct. I chose one and get penalized! This has happened since I last updated the app. Please fix!!!
Dear app developers: In previous versions, I was able to browse through what looked like dozens, if not hundreds, of courses. Now the only ones I can see are the official Memrise courses. What happened to all of the other courses? Please fix.
I have a paid subscription. Twice now, I’ve lost a huge streak because the app did not update to let me know I needed to do my daily learning.
I rely on the orange rocket at the top right corner to tell me if I need to do the day’s lesson or not (I’m doing multiple lessons at once). I lost a 170-day streak, and I just lost another 31-day streak, because the orange rocket did not update at the start of the day, after several minutes of loading & refreshing.
PLEASE FIX! This is very demoralizing & makes me not want to use this app or renew my subscription if this basic function won’t work!
Edit to add: The listening exercises are buggy--all of the choices are the same (the correct answer). The latest update did not fix this.
I've been using this app mostly to improve my Spanish vocabulary & it's great.
1. The app offers a ton of different courses for a wide variety of subject. Navigating all of these different courses can be a bit tedious, but the selection is impressive.
2. Even if you don't pay for the additional features in the pro version, the features in the free version are still sufficient for everyday studying.
3. The app providing its own keyboard for typing answers is helpful in answering in Spanish, without the need to switch your keyboard's language, when you have to use a vowel with an accent or a tilda over the letter N. (Duolingo doesn't provide this & that app is always scolding me for such typos.)
One request for the developers: Please make the Daily Goal section more easily accessible & clarify what satisfies the minimum for the Daily Goal. For example, REVIEWING words won't satisfy the Daily Goal, only LEARNING words. Sometimes I can't remember if I studied for that day or not (despite the reminders) & not being able to check the Daily Goal whenever I want makes it harder to figure that out.
Nothing is free 1/5
This would've been one of my favorite language learning apps. But after level one you have to pay for everything. I can't even learn new words.
I love „Learning with locals“!! 5/5
The little videos of locals saying certain phrases you‘ve learned and you translating them is super helpful. It shows you how different people pronounce the words. Also, it‘s exciting to actually understand them. And it brings faces to the people, which further motivates me so that I can have real-life conversations.
Chapeau to the memrise team! This is the only app I know that does this. Brings me loads of joy.
Most helpful app so far! 4/5
I’ve had this app for a couple of years now and it has allowed me to get started on learning multiple languages. I like that allows users to learn various ways (some with small payments) but with time it does pay off. I’ve never paid for the extra stuff so it supposedly takes me longer to learn since I don’t practice learning German in other ways I.e. practice on listening skills. Sometimes the app will allow you to test out your listening skills when you’re learning new words and if you don’t get it correctly it’ll keep asking you until you get it right.
I only started noticing it recently but when I would listen for a word or phrase and it wants me to choose the correct translation, all the options sound the same! Idk if that’s glitch but it only lets me choose one correct answer. Other than that I have no other complaints.
Interesting app 5/5
By Sanaz parhizi
It’s amazing application. Everyone can memorize a lot of words, and it’s very useful for me. It’s interesting way to keep my words in mind.
