With a language learning app like Memrise, your chances of actually recalling new words and applying verb conjugations is all the more likely. One of the biggest problems that many people face while studying the tongues of other places is that they simply don't get enough practice to allow anything to really stick.

The solution of this free smartphone app is to mix up the structure of its lessons to foster better cognitive commitment. It uses a system of reminders and stimulating exercises, combined with techniques of pictorial pairings that employ mnemonics. What's more, a game-like rewards system encourages you to keep on track and establish clear goals with your education. From all around the world, users have access to over 300 courses that include English, German, Italian, French, Spanish and more.
