I’ve used most language apps for a handful of languages, and Memrise has been one of the most useful for me. Currently, I’m working on learning Turkish and the course is in-depth and made in a way that helps me actually learn it rather than simply memorizing (as ironic as that is with a name like “Memrise”)
I have used or evaluated at least 20 language apps and I’ve done three complete courses on Duolingo (Brazilian Portuguese, French, Italian, plus some Spanish top-up). Memrise is FAR superior to any of them. The learning tools are strong and varied. Everything is clearly pronounced and notated with both literal and practical English translation.
Great app and enjoy the constant review of new words and interface features. I enjoy this much more than Duolingo and learning words faster
Memrise will help you have confident conversations in Turkish on the real-world topics that are most important to you, like travelling, meeting your partner's family or connecting with work colleagues.
Choose from hundreds of practical scenarios and Memrise will give you the Turkish vocabulary and practice to master those specific Turkish conversations.
- Build your vocabulary with Turkish words and phrases that locals actually use. - Practice listening to native speakers using the vocabulary that you're learning, so you can understand them confidently in the real world. - Practice speaking with your AI language tutor, so you can build confidence in private before having the conversations for real.
Where do I start when learning Turkish?
Our language experts have created hundreds of practical "scenarios" to choose from at the start of your journey. These scenarios relate to your reasons and interests for learning Turkish, whether it's connecting with your partner's family or simply understanding the lyrics to your favourite songs.
Choose your scenarios and learn relevant Turkish words and phrases that locals will actually use.
Once you've learnt some useful Turkish words, you'll be presented with listening practice. Immerse yourself in videos of Turkish native speakers using the words you've just learnt in a real-world context. This is important, so you can understand conversations confidently.
Next, you'll be presented with speaking practice with your AI language tutor that relates to the scenarios you've chosen. Want to order food at a restaurant in Turkish? Practice all the related topics in private, so you can talk confidently in the real world.
Will the Turkish lessons be tailored to my language level?

How much time will I need to commit to learning Turkish?
As much or as little as you like.
We suggest doing a small amount consistently and for that reason we offer you a recommended learning plan. However, you can always learn more or less should you wish.
Do I get a certificate for completing the Turkish course?
We do not offer certificates for learning with us.
However, we're sure that the locals actually understanding you is all the street cred you'll need!
