I really think Memrise needs to create Learn with Locals videos for the English language course. There must be a giant market of foreigners wanting to learn English and Memrise doesn’t provide videos for them.
I purchased a 1-year subscription of Memrise Pro for my mother to learn English and unfortunately, because of the absence of Learn with Locals, Grammarbot, and Chatbots, Memrise Pro is barely superior to the free Duolingo course and I see her swapping out Memrise Pro for free language apps on her phone whenever she wants. She’s not getting the same great language learning features in English from Memrise Pro that I receive for my Japanese course.
I really want Memrise to be ultra successful because it has such a great program, but the lack of content is frustrating especially with the English course being the easiest to provide content for if the developers are English speakers.
