Would you like to provide feedback about our grammar feature?

Hi!

We would like to learn how our users who have used the new grammar feature feel and think about it. Can you please share it under this topic? I have seen 2 other topics created for the grammar feature, but we are quite keen on hearing more!

Thanks,

New grammar feature? Have I missed an announcement?

Do you mean grammarbot? If so. It’s great! :tada:

Hi! We had released a grammar feature back in early November, it is a beta feature now and available in Chinese, French, English, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Russian courses if you would like to check.
You can check this post: Release: Grammar Sessions on Android
Some languages’ grammar feature was released earlier, some later (like Russian and Korean)

I have tried this grammar feature in Spanish course for English-speakers. It’s a really great and necessary feature for beginners, personally I was eagering to see something like this in the Memrise app for a long time. You know, grammar is very important and whatnot.

But, guys, why don’t you do something cool for those who has more advanced level? Because your courses at the very best are covering only A2 level. For any user who has been learning for a long time and who has succeeded in endeavouring it would be just boring.

Ive paid for pro membership thinking that grammarbot and chatbot would be very useful. Although I can see the icons, they have never worked for me.
I’m using apple. Is this feature only available on Androids?
Im learning level 2 Spanish. Is this available only to level 1 learners? If so I feel short changed. Because when you advertise your pro features you don’t mention this at all.
Although I’m happy with overall performance of the app, I don’t think I’ll renew my membership next year as I don’t see the benefit of paying extra where I can get the almost the same features for free.

Hi AysheTuba,
I made a comment to your question but no reply. As a pro member apple user what am I getting extra? I hear grammarbot and chatbot is blocked and grammar sessions only released on Android for level 1 Spanish. Can you please explain?

Hi,
Sorry for the late reply Dundee. It is available on both platforms, and available for Spanish.
I definitely understand your concern and the feeling about the payment.
We are doing our best to scale up the content for the majority of the languages we already have, by the end of this year, we will definitely have more content for grammar.
All the best,
Tuba Sucu

Great to hear this feature shall be expanded further. I’m enjoying the grammar feature right now. But how can you make it better? Excited for the update anyone? I sure am.

Thanks Marshall languages. We have been doing a lot of user testing indeed. Another reason for why we need feedback from the users in our community. I was expecting to receive more feedback though :slight_smile:

We will keep our community updated for sure!

Hi @ayshetuba,

I left some feedback on the other thread (Release: Grammar Sessions on Android). The new feature is good but, since trying it out, I have had a syncing issue that I can’t resolve. On my web version of Spanish(Spain)1, it says I have 10 words due for classic review and 2 difficult words. But, when I choose ‘difficult words’ I get the “Whoops…” screen and when I view my difficult words, it says I don’t have any. When I try to review the 10 words due for classic review, it offers me a full set of 25 to review, after which the 10 are still there!

It could just be a coincidental bug but I didn’t experience it before I tried some of the new grammar sessions on the android app.

Hi Tugba,

Thanks for coming back to me. My previous email has been sent prematurely.

My email address is: yahoo.com

Overall I’m enjoying using Memrise app. My Spanish has improved since I’ve started using the app. But there are quite a lot of things which need improving.

Up until last week, grammarbot didn’t function. But now I can see “learn grammar” option has become available. This is good news. It would be even better if we can get higher level grammar :blush:

Although chatbot is still being advertised as one of the perks of being a pro member, I can see this has been disabled as well.

The “explore” option is not functioning properly. When I focus on a bed knob, it says “bicycle bell”, or when I focus on my lamp, it says “candy cane”. So trying to learn anything through “explore” option is completely counterproductive.

Although the app itself is really well designed, and I can see a lot of thought and work has been put behind it; you can see why I’m frustrated especially as a pro-member.

Also, it would be great if we can raise issues directly in an email rather than just forums.

Kind regards,

Dundee

My main language of study is Russian and I have just started doing Italian on the side.
I really like the feature and hope that it will come to Russian soon.
My only complaint so far, is that there doesn’t seem to be any sound on the Italian grammar lessons.

Hi I wanna know why I don’t have the grammar section activated when I’m learning English in Spanish (Mexico)

When is this feature coming for Danish?

I used it in the Russian course, and it wasn’t useful at all. It was just a repetition of using no vs. not. The repetition of the grammar was far too frequently when it was just that one tiny aspect. It also felt weirdly separate from the rest of the course. I think it would have been better if it was integrated into the language modules.
