  • Has become pretty useless

    This was probably just the inevitable ensh*ttifiation of a once-great tech product, but they’ve finally removed community-generated content, which is what made this service so great. Now it’s just a worse Duolingo. Skip this and use Anki.

    Memrise was my favorite language learning app before this big overhaul of their learning system. I just hate it now. First of all, I despise the fact that it is now just another greedy app trying to profit off of AI. AI does NOT belong in a language LEARNING app, we are already seeing its negative effects in other apps like Duolingo where users are reporting translation errors! As someone training to be a translator, I value technology where it belongs. But a program that essentially swallows texts and then simply spits them back out rearranged is NOT conducive to teaching people languages correctly. Anyone who cares about languages and translation would know that. But of course, we just had to conform to the latest tech buzzwords. I have never and will never want help from a bot while learning a language. This especially makes so little sense when Memrise focused on real-world examples! A bot has nothing to do with the real world or real people! The video component is also so much worse now. They have nothing to do with the current set of vocabulary the app gives me. Instead of having a mixture of video, listening, and written practice, or choosing to focus more on one aspect, we have no choice but to do either written vocab drills, terrible nonsensical videos, or the chatbot that I have already expressed my opinion about above. This app was so much fun to use before this update, and the paid plans were totally worth it. Why would I ever pay for this now? I doubt I’ll ever come back to this app as developers would never go back to something that actually worked.

    It’s been helpful in solidifying Biblical Hebrew. It’s more to help with vocab.
  • Good app, “Practice Conversation” is bad

    Update Feb 2024: Dropped to 1 star following the developer lackluster response. Memrise was once a great app. The app changes and the addition of the Memebot is really, really bad. It’s like the app developers so desperately want to say they use AI, and they forced this awkward chat bot in the middle of the app. The conversation level is completely out of place with where you are in learning. You can reply with gibberish to get through the exercise and it will say you did a good job. Remove this aspect of the app, and you have a 5 star app. If people want to use it, have that available, but remove it from being jammed in between lessons completely out of place. I’m canceling my subscription, they ruined the app with their desperate attempt to be “hip” and add “AI” to the app. Another great app ruined by incompetent management. ORIGINAL REVIEW —- The app is great for beginners, except for the “Practice Conversation” module. A beginner does not know full sentences in Italian, but the app takes you from learning basic vocab to attempting to have a full on conversation with an AI bot. Most people quit learning a language after feeling overwhelmed, and Memrise fails here. When a user is on the basics, learning vocab and basic grammar, they should not be thrown into trying to have a full on conversation. Everything else about the app is great, but unfortunately this feature/forced learning step halts learning. Conversations should come much later. Please address and Memrise could best the rest of the apps out there, as most of them fail in the same regard - too much too fast ruins people’s morale and they quit.
  • New Update is horrible

    The courses made by Memrise are not good. Their new update ruined all the community made courses. I was a premium subscriber the last 5 years, I’ve finally given up on this company. So many bad updates!
  • European Portuguese!

    Great to find an app that has European Portuguese and not just Brazilian. I love the videos and listening exercises, they really help me develop an ear for the language. The conversations with the bot can be a little tricky and I’m not as sure how I’m supposed to do them, but it’s a cool way to practice conversation and try your best even if you don’t understand everything or know every word.
  • They charge too much

    Their are better language apps than this one because I tried this app and they bumped up their prices to continue learning any language
  • Disappointed Lifetime Subscriber

    By BoardgameDad
    I’ve been a lifetime subscriber for more than a year. I loved the app—it was gamified, it would give you several opportunities to learn new words before declaring that I had learned the word, and had a few different ways to review words, from on-the-street videos with locals pronouncing the words to pronouncing the words myself. I updated two weeks ago, and I hate it. The videos and pronunciation reviews are gone. Their is only two reviews available something called the classic review and quick review that I used to have capped at 10, but now goes on forever! You have an AI feature that is beyond my level. The new videos are not polished, they look like someone recorded them on smartphones while stuck in their house during the pandemic. Please give us the option to return to the classic layout/course. The old app/course **** The new app/course *
  • Excellent!

    Excellent app to memorize words! I only wish it would include voice with AI for less studied languages!

    I have been using memrise since 2012. I loved it and advocated its effectiveness to hundreds since then. Unfortunately the first indication to me that bad things were coming was after they removed the ability to add community courses through the mobile app several years ago. Well the bypass was to add them to your account via browser then you had access in the app. Now they are removing community content completely from the app with a don't panic solution of “we will provide a url link to allow access via browser on mobile”. We can all see where this is going. I like many veteran users and supporters have lost trust and will find it hard to invest any further time with memrise. It’s time to move on to prevent loosing progress when they finally decide to pull the plug on any community content. Good luck competing with other centralised cookie cutter one size fits all learning experiences like the ranks of duolingo and the like. I will remember you for who you were and not for what you are becoming. You will be missed 💔
