Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I start when learning Yoruba?
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 Yoruba, whether it's connecting with your partner's family or simply understanding the lyrics to your favourite songs.

Choose your scenarios and learn relevant Yoruba words and phrases that locals will actually use.
Will the Yoruba lessons be tailored to my language level?
Yes. Memrise is suited to all language level abilities - you'll select your level during registration.

It should feel challenging at times, but won't be overwhelming.
How much time will I need to commit to learning Yoruba?
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.
