Memrise Online English Course


Speak Real-Life English with our Online English Courses

Each of our official English courses teaches all the language you need, in stress-free, simple lessons. So you can easily go from learning to using English in real-life situations. From finding your way around the streets of London to ordering fish and chips, shopping, greeting new friends or connecting with family, you’ll learn the language as it’s used by native speakers in daily life.

With our talk-first approach, you won't have to worry about sounding like a textbook. All lessons include over 3,000 of the most current and useful words and phrases, as well as over 10,000 native speaker video and audio clips.

Why learn with our online English course rather than in a classroom or other apps?

Because we make it easy. We know you think it's hard. You probably tried learning English before. Perhaps it was grasping the word order of different sentences. Or figuring out when to use 'they're', 'there' and 'their' in context. Or maybe it was both!

That's why we use a talk-first approach that helps you feel immersed, not stressed. You learn the language that is used now. Taught by native speakers in video and audio clips. Real-life examples and short practice lessons make it easy for you to go from learning to using your new language from day one.

Step 1.

Learn real-life English 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...


Learning that's easy, useful and authentic

Feel immersed, not stressed

Video and audio clips featuring real people give you the authentic feeling of learning immersion. Practice sessions you can do on your own take away the stress of being a beginner. Real-life learning without the fuss.

Speak from the get go

You'll learn the language that's used now, so you'll never have to worry about sounding like a textbook. And because our courses are designed to teach what's relevant for daily life, you'll have what you need to start trying it out from the day you start learning.

Make it happen, easily

We take the things you think make speaking in a new language really hard, and flip them on their head. No dry grammar classes or forcing you to speak on the spot. Zero long classes with heaps of homework. By keeping it real, simple and fun, you easily move from studying to speaking, fast.

Amazing!! Honestly the best app I have tried for learning practical phrases that are used and spoken in real daily life! So helpful to hear it word for word and by locals, lots of repetition to help it stick.
