Our language learning courses have all the phrases people use in their everyday lives. You learn with video and audio clips of real native speakers.
Why learn a language with Memrise? We're the only app that's built to help you master the three key skills that will get you from language learning to language speaking:
1. Know the translation of words and phrases
2. Understand them when they're used in real-life situations
3. Be able to chat with other people
There are many apps that do the translation bit, but only Memrise gets you to nail all three. Imagine learning how to say 'ça va!' in French but not having a clue what is said back to you. Or not being able to find the words to express how much you loved your dinner in a Portuguese restaurant. It's impossible to say you've really learned a language until really master those three skills.
Try it for yourself, the first lesson is free. Once you get going, upgrade to a Pro Plan to unlock all our language courses. That's right! One Pro Plan, all languages. You'll also unlock Offline mode, so you can learn wherever you are, even without data or WiFi.
Whether you’re looking to learn Spanish phrases, learn Japanese characters, learn French pronunciation or just start learning a new language with a language learning app, Memrise is here to help you get you language ready for the real world. Try any of our 20+ languages.

Excellent teaching style!
It’s teaching style is so much better than other leading language teaching apps... in my humblest of opinions (I’m learning Dutch.) It’s very cutesy in it’s style which might put some people off but where it counts it works well. I actually enjoy the fun feeling the app has more so. I’m quickly remembering the words it teaches more so than the phrases that Babbel threw at me early on. I think it’s the way they’ve blended the audio with the words on screen across either the language being learned or the English translation, then the screens where they give you the foreign word and you pick the English translation from a small set of choices, or vice verse. There’s audio bits where you listen to three things spoken, one of which matches the word it says at the top. All I can say is it’s absolutely worth a free download, I wouldn’t be surprised if you took up the offer that’s on right now as it pops up.
Overall, the App. is great. There are some tweaks which I would suggest you make to improve it. Some buttons are too small, like the speaker icon for repeating the audio - if you don’t hit it exactly dead-on, it won’t play the audio. Also, some multiple choice exercises are irritating because, when one already knows the answer, but has to rummage through six choices of wildly different options to find it, it can just be a waste of time. A better option would be, instead of having six options to choose from all wildly different and none of which, except the correct choice, vaguely resembling the correct answer, you could have two or three options which are all similar in meaning to the correct answer - this way the searching has a purpose, rather than just slowing down the process of finding an the obvious answer. Update - Also, the multiple-choice exercise is often so slow in responsiveness that often I’ll tap a choice and nothing will happen. If you try to tap them in order with any speed at all, some will not respond and you’ll end up with a jumbled up sentence that you then have to waste time fixing. These are small and easily fixable things, so it’d be a shame if they were left-in.
