What our Portuguese learners think

Taken from App Store and Google Play


I am studying European Portuguese now. I use the paid version of Memrise - well worth the price. My favorite feature is “Learn with Locals” where they essentially stop what seems to be random people (native speakers) on the street and have them say a phrase from the lesson. 


Memrise is on another planet. Real life videos of people saying words with their own style is game-changing. Honestly, I had been using another app for 4 years and getting nowhere - and within just a short time I feel so good about my potential with Portuguese already using Memrise. Thank you!


Memrise was rated #1 app to help learn with another language by a Portuguese instructor I follow on YouTube due to the fact that it shows real world pronunciation and use and it did. it disappoint! Am excitedly loving this app!


This is the best app I have found to help with European Portuguese. I highly recommend it and they even offer a life time membership to all languages!


I’ve been learning French using the DuoLingo app but they don’t have European Portuguese. I hunted around the internet, tried a couple other links and so glad to have landed here. Seeing and hearing actual people say the words/phrases is really helpful and they seem to pull me into the place I’ll be visiting.
