Introducing Memrise

Hello everyone! Today, I would like to introduce you a mobile application that can be used for teaching/learning purposes. The app that I am going to mention is Memrise. Memrise is an app which aims to teach you vocabulary in a fun way. The fun of Memrise lies in two things: memes and gamification. The app follows a learning method that relies on creating funny or bizarre associations with the studied words. Courses are often coupled with memes designed to playfully help remember the vocabulary. The memes are created by the community and everyone can add their own!(https://www.lingualift.com/blog/best-language-learning-apps/)

You can donwload this app both your mobile phone and computer. It has a lot of courses and levels according to the learners levels and needs. The best thing about Memrise is it keeps reminding you words that you are learning until you really get them in your long term memory. That is, it doesn’t let you forget them!

Finally, I want to mention how we use this app with our students, and how this app can be useful for classroom tasks. In my opinion, this app will draw students attention because it’s fun! They will enjoy while learning new vocabulary, and I believe that it will be more beneficial than make them memorize words. One classroom activity that I can suggest would be a vocabulary game. In this game, every student studies on new vocabularies (at least 3) and then every day one or two students present the words they have learned. After every student present their words, the teacher may ask them to perform a short play by using these words.

Thanks for visiting!
