Why is learning Yoruba with Memrise better than DuoLingo?

Memrise isn’t just a language course: it is a full AI tutor.

Memrise teaches you Yoruba words and phrases that you’re actually going to use in the real world.  What’s more, you’ll see videos of native speakers using this vocab with their own pronunciation. Our lessons are fully personalised and based on your unique interests.

 Will the Yoruba be tailored to my language level?

Yes. Memrise is suited to all language level abilities.

We have a recommended path for beginners and you can also pick and choose what you learn. 

All our videos are filtered to match the words you’ve learned and throughout the product you’ll be supported with tools should you need a little extra help!

To replicate that experience as much as possible, our content is taught through native speakers pronouncing the words you’re learning. What’s more, our Yoruba lessons are created by expert linguists who are up-to-date with modern day language.

We use AI to recommend you this content, as well as to help you practice your speaking in a relaxed environment. The best way to build confidence before you do the real thing! 

How much time will I need to commit to learning Yoruba?

What our Yoruba learners think

Taken from App Store and Google Play


It has Yoruba and not even Google Translate has that


it really helped my korean, chinese, and yoruba speaking skills


Great app and enjoy the constant review of new words and interface features. I enjoy this much more than Duolingo and learning words faster


Best app for learning beats duolingo


Everyone recommended Duolingo but I didn’t like it because I feel like it just throws words at you without teaching you. So I wasn’t really learning that well with that app.
This app has been the best one for me that I have found and so I paid for it to learn the languages I want to learn

Welcome To The Outdoors

I have just got this app and I am learning more that I feel I did in my 65 days on Duolingo!
