I understand from reading previous forum posts that distinctions are made based upon UK vs US English, which is sort of understandable. However there are at least three discrete versions in Memrise of German 1 for English speakers if not more. Each has wildly different numbers of vocabulary words (148, 197, and 476 ). I only noticed this due to myself and family members starting German together and we all had different leader-boards and vocabulary.
Looking at the official Memrise profile there are two listed, but one of us is using still a third. Elsewhere on the forums someone has listed links to four. And to be clear, these are not the old A1, A2 programs.
So I guess my question are really:
how did we all end up with different German 1 decks when we all had the same version of English selected for our profiles?
is there a way beyond one’s profile to understand which is for UK and which is for US speakers?
is there any way to see when an official deck was last updated or to keep track of which one is the ‘current’ officially supported one?
I like Memrise a lot based on my experiences so far and we have a few year accounts paid for now, but this is really kind of an awkward user experience.
