[Feature Request] Review without learning

I wanted for a long time to review my previoisly studied vocabulary paper books in memrise without learning them again!

I mean Memrise should add an option to “fast review, normal review” a course “without learning it in the app.”

go to a lesson
click Options
click Preview

What do you mean by learning?

Aren’t the courses finished, all words fully planted?

Yes, I have already learnt the vocabularies by reading the paper book in the past.
Now, I want to use “memrise games and review quizes” to refresh them.
I don’t want to start planting and learning from beginning

I can see and preview the words. But I want to use speed review, as an example, to refresh my words

This has been a long-requested feature, but it looks like Memrise doesn’t have any plans to implement it, sorry :\

Auto_grow / Auto_learn has been removed for normal users.

You need to create your own courses or be added to the courses you are interested as a contributor.
It is said that as an owner / contributor you can still make use of auto_learn. But I have not tested it for myself.


It’s impossible for me to be added as an contributor.
Memrise should add a review without learn option.

Do they see this thread?
If we ask them they will do.

well, some people requested it, is not like a “long requested” feature by a multitude of users. Widely requested were “typos override”, “leave the mems in peace”, “fix bugs”, “communicate with the users” etc Feels like an eternity since a team member last amswered something, anything in here


Auto learning a single word (not a full level or complete course): https://community.memrise.com/t/userscript-memrise-auto-learn


@aminya Sadly, the Memrise team essentially never implements suggestions from users that are posted on the forums. That might sound harsh, but I’m not trying to exaggerate.

Anyway, you could always consider learning the words again through Memrise – this could be a form of review in itself, I suppose :slight_smile:

Take a look at https://www.languagecourse.net vocabulary trainer VT.

  • there are no 6 six steps to learn / plant new words
  • there is also a “quiz mode”
  • available for Android (different GUI than on website, no full keyboard typing supported)
  • there is a FAQ (e.g about the amount of learning new words, quickly learning quanitty of NEW words)
  • many different topics like A1, A2, B1, B2, (C1), tests, special themes
  • you can use Leitner index card boxes
  • special sleep mode (on Android) for reinforcing the learning

As I wrote in another thread:
I was quickly testing the VT Portuguese course with the Android app on Bluestacks V2 emulator…but I got some problems losing words trying it offline (no WLAN, no 3G) on the Laptop…and sadly I had lost learned / synced words from my online server account (including 2-3 card boxes)…so my corupted data seems to have even somehow reset the progress (learned words) on the VT server :frowning:
As I had also some offline / cache mode problems with Bluestacks V2 with DuoLingo and I could not test with a real Android smartphone. DuoLingo seems to work a little bit better (more recent app versions) on Bluestacks V3…
I am not using the VT app at the moment as I have not talked to any technical support and I did not try to clear what had happend to my server account and app.
Be careful - I would focus on using the VT app only in online (available Internet) mode.

This is not a perfect solution but this userscript hide the word “to be learned” by default and then you just see the hint. If you think that you don’t know the word, you can click on a button to reveal it. Otherwise, click next and when you will be tested on it, you can use the auto-learn userscript from here
