Language learning isn't fun for everyone, but that might be because of how it's presented. Here's an app that turns the process into a game.

Watch the trailer

A unique spin on learning languages. Memrise turns language learning into a game. Your goal is to train to take on a tyrant species bent on forcing uniformity on the world. You prepare for battle by learning new languages.

A unique spin on learning languages
Your first lesson

Your first lesson. In your first lesson, you'll learn some basic greetings and phrases. They're played and displayed, so you learn to recognize them and hear them.

Goals and memorization. You have daily goals, both for learning and mastering new words. You'll be asked to recognize them spoken and in writing, as well as spell them.

Goals and memorization
A battle plan for language learning

A battle plan for language learning. The first class is your battle plan, and you can continue beyond that once you've finished the lesson plan for the introduction to your new language.

What is it about?

With the Memrise: Learn Languages app, you can choose from a wide range of languages including French, Spanish, German, Chinese, and Italian. In the introduction, you learn about a tyrant force that wants to overthrow the Alliance and enforce uniformity throughout the galaxy.

For those who...

  • Want to learn a new language
  • Like their education to be game-like

Not for those who...

  • Don't care about learning new languages
  • Would rather just use rote memorization instead of a fun way to learn

Why we love it

Memrise has a great selection of languages to choose from. In total, here are 77 languages you can choose from, ranging from Afrikaans to Zulu (and plenty in between). I decided to take on Japanese and Polish. You begin with simple phrases like hello, yes, no, please, and thank you. From there, you'll move on to other essential phrases. The topics include general greetings and responses, emotions, food, places and things, and handy phrases. While the Memrise app is free, it does have its limitations. You can only complete so many topics before the recruits get tired and go to sleep. Then you have to wait a few hours to continue your language-learning journey. If you want a more personalized learning experience, you can purchase Memrise Pro to get native speakers helping you learn, the ability to target difficult words so you'll always remember them, and a speed review game mode to hone your reflexes. The only real problem with this app is that it asks you to spell words without focusing at all on the alphabet. Understanding why a word is spelled the way it is can make a huge difference in learning that spelling, especially for languages that use diacritics (accent marks and so forth) in their alphabet.
