Memrise is a freemium study app that features a range of content to aid in learning a foreign language. The app is free to download and provides plenty of challenging content to get you started in a new language, teaching vocabulary, characters and basic phrases in a fun environment.

 

The Pro account costs $9 USD per month, $59 USD per year or $129 USD for a lifetime membership. With paid membership, naturally you get access to significantly more features, including chatbots to help them learn by conversing, videos of native speakers and statistics to keep you informed on how much progress you have made.

 

However, what I like about the app beyond its easy to use interface and slick design, is that with the free version there is sufficient content to not feel as though you are constantly hitting a pay wall. This differs from other apps that are free to download but quickly become obvious that they are only really useful if you are willing to pay for membership benefits. With Memrise this was not the case.

 

One of the drawbacks that I found when using Memrise to learn a language is that it is very much focused on learning vocabulary rather than for practicing speaking, extensive writing, listening or reading. Therefore, as a resource for memorising words, or simply as a study aid, it is great, however for gaining fluency in a language I would recommend another means of learning that is more comprehensive.

 

Furthermore, because the app does not make you do a placement test to determine what level you are, it is difficult to remain engaged if you are beyond basic ability as you may have to start at a level that is either too simple or too hard.

Pros
  • Free version contains plenty of content that does not make you feel as though you are missing out by not paying for membership
  • Pro membership has benefits to help take you to the next level of learning
  • Easy to use app with slick interface
Cons
  • Not comprehensive enough to help you reach fluency
  • No placement test at beginning to determine ability

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
