Being an Android user, learning a foreign language can enhance your brain activity, boosts your cultural horizons, and helps you avoid catastrophes when ordering from a menu in an unfamiliar country. For this, you don’t necessarily have to sign up for classes or pay for a course to get started, instead, you can make use of a free language learning app such as Memrise. A 2017 Google Play Awards winner, Memrise brings a variety of tools to help users pick up basic conversational fluency with a number of languages including Japanese, French, and Spanish.
Memrise is aimed to deliver a damn new & innovative way to learn & understand numerous languages. It combines gamified learning techniques with what we know as “elaborate encoding,” so to help you remember & recall information and vocabulary through the use of “mems” which are mnemonic devices such as etymologies to help you lock-in details. While using Memrise, you can start off simple or skip all the way through to more advanced lessons.
Something very unique with Memrise is how it teaches you new words & phrases. It puts words into sentences with similar sounding words from your native language to keep building the connection for recalling them. You’ll also often see various images that you can scroll through that overlay the foreign text with a familiar image for the added association. Another method used by the application is to teach you a different language by mixing up the translations. This way you’ll learn a few new words at once, and then you keep learning them over & over in different orders so to make sure you’ve learned them before moving through to the next round.
The free tier of Memrise comes up with a variety of courses. However, you can expand the range through acquiring the pro version as it adds extra features such as speed review & listening, chatbot-assisted learning and native speaker video exercises.
In a nutshell, Memrise offers almost everything you need to have a compelling conversation in any foreign language across the globe.
