What other learners are saying
Voloúre - "Best app for getting experience listening and interacting with native speakers. Listening to conversations by native speakers is so much better for actually being able to understand people"
Beth Williams - "My Fiancé is Portuguese so I wanted to learn their language to communicate easily. Over the year I can now string small sentences together. I don't think I could have done it without the help of Memrise."

The most fun of all the language learning apps
And for me making it fun and keeping me interested is at least half the battle when it comes to learning languages (my school experience of language learning was that it was like some exquisite torture). So far after a good amount of time spent I am definitely improving, think the sequencing of material is broadly appropriate for day to day use and is “natural” as opposed to being academic, I like the various different ways the software teases me into trying to beat myself and win little awards (I learn best with lots of encouragement and less time spent feeling a failure) and the other elements of “gamification”. I think the inclusion of a camera based real time “what is the word for this thing” tool is cool and though I haven’t used it in earnest it’s enough for me to feel proud of the app. And whoever thought to include the phrase “you are a genius” was a real genius. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud and beam when it taught me that - caught me completely off guard and I felt like I had a new friend helping me learn.
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.
