LANGUAGE APPS REVIEWS
This nifty little app helps you learn German through with mnemonics -- memory tricks that help you to memorize key words and phrases. You can access a database of mnemonics that have been proven to help other learners of German, as well as create and share your own!
In Memrise, introductory courses start with key verbs and nouns in German, each of which has a picture or phrase to help you remember it. You plant a virtual garden with each lesson, which you must ‘water’ by going back to practice the previous lesson of vocabulary words or phrases you’ve learnt. If you make a mistake, you’ll get a refresher lesson on the words you’re struggling with, so you end up practicing the topics that challenge you the most.
The best part about this app is that it is tailored for every level of learner. Beginners can explore some basic phrases and words in German, while more advanced learners can choose a course about advanced topics in German, like reflexive pronouns or phrasal verbs. Whatever you need for your level of study, you’ll be able to find in Memrise.
