Teacher Review

Memrise uses some creative and easy way to remember words for learning English. The focus of this app is to help the users expand their vocabulary by learning English words in an effective way. Try the free version, as it's one of the best free language-learning apps currently on the market.

It uses audio, images, and memory techniques to help you associate words with one another for easier recall, as well as regular tests to ensure you're remembering the concepts.

Memrise uses elaborate encoding technique to help you remember different concepts. Instead of having you just read through words and their translations, and trying to memorize them in their raw form, it creates an association between the translation and words you are already familiar with. 

There are different ways Memrise tests you. For example, you may get a question/answer problem to solve and then a multiple choice question later on, though they both are testing you on the same concept.

Memrise utilizes spaced repetition technique to regularly review your skills. It does so more often in the beginning with easier tests as you're learning new words, and then less often, but with harder tests, as they're committed to long term memory. These automatically precisely spaced reviews keep you learning and remembering but without overdoing it.

Another method Memrise uses is to teach you a different language is by mixing up the translations. This way you learn a few new words at once, and then you keep learning them over and over again in a different order to ensure you know them before moving you through to the next round.
