Use Memrise To Really Learn New Language Vocabulary Or Another Subject, 14 '12 Subject: new, Viewed by: 10
If you’ve ever wished there was a way to just stare at a screen and automatically know a great deal about new topics, then you’re probably a fan of online learning. If you’ve been looking at various online language learning, flashcards and mnemonics, you’ve probably noticed that there’s a lot of great tools out there, but very few of them entice you to come back on a regular basis.
No-one knows why you didn’t go back – it might be because it didn’t teach you much or because you didn’t find the topics you wanted. But most likely, it was because you just weren’t gripped by it and simply forgot to go back.
Memrise has a new take on learning online. It’s created many great lessons with interesting topics, many of them language-based, and uses mnemonics to turn the act of learning into an art which is both enjoyable and easy. Then Memrise has taken the theory behind rote memorisation and determined how often you’ll need to be reminded of your previous learning. In order to get you to revisit the old classes they’ve gamified the process – and they’ve done it beautifully.
Memrise has been created by a team with credentials in neuroscience, languages and other memory professionals. They’ve used a good base in science to develop their methods and designed Memrise to be as memorable and fun as possible. They’ve turned learning into a game and a sort of competition. They’re also keen to get you involved in the Memrisecommunity and forum, teaching things you know. Basically, they’re doing everything they can to make it easy for you to memorise things.
