Memrise is best in my opinion. much more engaging and more useful in the early stages.

Theyre both good in different ways. Duolingo is better at consolidating grammar (and just grammar in general) whilst Memrise is better if you just want to focus on your vocab.

memrise is good for learning exam board specific vocab (as is quizlet) which in terms of exams is good as it helps you recognise words in reading/listening activities. duolingo is good for learning words in the context of sentences and for grammar and stuff. i'm doing a level german and have always used a combination of both

Memrise actually uses science and statistics to enhance your learning of whatever it is you are learning.
I used it a LOT at GCSE and a bit at AS, picking it up again now.
I had duolingo for a few weeks but was not seeing results with it and it seemed a bit simplified tbh

I'd say give both a try but be aware that it depends what you are learning and how you learn best.
Memrise was so great for me because I could set goals (minutes of it per day to achieve), the app is great, so is the online one and I can listen to it and repeatedly type out words (this is how I learn best).
You can also make visual aids for memorising certain things.

Quizlet also gets a shout out because it is fab for making your own revision materials but using existing ones and learning a lot is best on Memrise.

My patience was low for duolingo so I'd suggest you try it but yeah.

Worked for me especially for languages and I also used it for GCSE definitions in Geography, Maths and Chemistry.
At AS I used bits for French and Maths and Chemistry definitions.
At A2 I mostly use Quizlet but am picking up a Chemistry and 2 language courses to bring back the fun into my week :ahee: :excited:

Hope this helps, erm excuse the rambling but these things are sooo exciting

Your last statement made me giggle
I have used Duolingo but what sucks about it is that there are no daily goals to achieve. That, for me, is an awesome incentive to go on it everyday gone. Memrise was always the better app for me but my friends used Duolingo and I must admit, I liked the competition factor that it brought.

Did you achieve good grades using Memrise?

Well I tried Memrise and Duolingo a while ago to see which I'd use to aid my German learning but I just felt Duolingo's format was more friendly and that it taught me more.
However, I havent used Memrise in a while so I couldnt give you specific details

I prefer Memrise because it helps me expand my vocabulary and it's also helping me improve my French.

Duolingo feels more enjoyable, there's a better "aura" and the graphics just make you feel good about your learning experience. Also, the community is amazing! :cool:
