A relatively newbie to Memrise and learning languages.
I first used Memrise (free) when going to Barcelona and was amazed with how much Catalan I learned in the weeks before the trip. Unfortunately, this didn’t help in Madrid when I had to take my amigo to A&E!
Unfortunately, I haven’t been abroad since and I had forgotten all about Memrise until I saw the promotional offer in January and decided to take the plunge. I have been learning Spanish since which is going steadily well.
Firstly, I want to ask about watching TV/Films in the language you are learning and also video games. I have just started reading Fluent Forever by Gabriel Wyner and he mentioned it’s a good thing to do in the intro but I am not sure when is the best time. What do others recommend?
Secondly, what’s with all the hate for Memrise? Here and Reddit I see a lot of negative posts which is a shame. I feel really grateful for the app because I probably would have never attempted to learn a language otherwise.
