Why learn with Memrise?

Because we know. You probably tried learning a new language before. It was hard or boring...or both. You know what’s weird, though? We’ve ALL learned a language once! Sure, it took a bit of time, but all good things in life do.

That’s why we created a 3-step approach to learning that helps you acquire a new language like you did the first time around: naturally. 

Step 1.

Learn real-life words and phrases with help from our super-smart learning engine.

It adapts your lessons to your individual needs, which keeps boredom away so you stay motivated and learn faster. Language goals? Nailed.

Step 2.

Immerse yourself. Build your ability to actually understand a new language in real-world contexts.

With thousands of naturally-voiced audio and video clips you’ll watch, listen and learn from real locals - no computerised audio here!

Step 3.

Gain the confidence to speak. The ultimate goal is being understood in your new language, right?

With us, it’s about jumping in and giving it a go without worrying about being accurate. So we won’t give you grammar lessons from the get-go. That’s what probably scared you away when you last tried...


Have fun and learn fast

A smart learning engine

You probably tried learning a new language before and gave up. It doesn’t feel easy, we get it! Our smart learning engine adapts to every individual learner creating a learning path that has just the right level of challenge, so you stay motivated and make progress faster.

Learn with locals

We bring the context of the outside world into your lessons with video clips of real native speakers. Listening to lots of different speaking styles and real accents helps you naturally build your ability to understand the nuances and beauty of another language.

No grammar rules

You read it right. When it comes to speaking a language it’s more important to have the confidence to speak and be understood than worrying about accuracy. Studies show that traditional school methods for teaching grammar can actually slow your progress down, so we’ve put them on the backbench.

And so much more...

To help our learning engine personalise your learning experience even more and keep you motivated, you can also set daily goals and learning reminders, as well as join leaderboards to compete against other learners.

Found Memrise to help me with Spanish. Most important phrase learnt so far. ¿Hay WiFi? 😆 (Is there WiFi? 😂)


Memrise thank you, I mastered hiragana and the katakana has just thrown me.


This app is so dope! Definitely helping me with learning simple words and phrases in Korean. 👍🏽!


I like the videos of normal people speaking because it gives me a better idea of the pronunciation.
