Learning a new language can be difficult but trust me when I tell you there are ways to make things more fun. The app in today’s post has become an asset for myself and I believe should be for every actor, overseas or not. Today’s post?
Top 3 Reasons I Like MEMRISE As An Expat Thespian
Points Through Repetition – Nothing helps for learning a language like repeating words, phrases and sentences. The Memrise app makes this enjoyably interactive by providing you with points when you get words/sentences correct and fun multiple choice for word assimilation. Additionally, if you have Memrise Pro, basic audio exercises and even a section to assist with difficult words. I was tired of the flash card system and found an amazing alternative!
Touch Of Grammar – Memrise is an ace up the sleeve for providing sentences with a grammatical component , mixing the sentence order and testing your knowledge on where words should be placed for sentence structure. One word of advice though. When studying syntax, don’t expect to grasp the grammar of another language if you don’t already know the grammar of your own. Be diligent and do a basic refresher on the grammar of your native tongue and your “host language” will thank you.
The Speed Review – Ever been out and about speaking your host language and all of sudden your stuck trying to remember a word. We’ve all had it happen. The Speed Review with Memrise is gold and the asset you need to reduce that “deer-in-the-headlights” look. In this section each word that you’ve studied is prompted with a countdown of about 10 seconds for your to find the correct answer. A powerful asset for your ability to recall.
Your choice for a language app will be based on your learning style. I enjoy MEMRISE because it works well with my “visual-learning” mind. At the end of the day the only truth that is definite is learning your host language will always be an asset…Expat Thespian!
