What our French learners think

Taken from App Store and Google Play


I downloaded the app to give learning French another another shot after different apps weren’t working for me (stupid owl). I’ve only just finished the first level of French, and one week of this app, has helped me more than months of others. 


I have had this app for four years to improve my French. I pay for the full version and it’s really worth it. I have tried lots of language apps and this is probably the best one I have ever used.


 I have used or evaluated at least 20 language apps and I’ve done three complete courses on Duolingo (Brazilian Portuguese, French, Italian, plus some Spanish top-up). Memrise is FAR superior to any of them


One of the most useful features to me is the literal translations of French phrases to English. It helps a lot with understanding the French language. The developers deserve my money.


much better than duolingo !! teaches words you would actually use in real life and how to recognise it in a normal conversation, and even how it would really be pronounced. i really like it ! im taking gcse french and possibly going to france for a language course and this is really helping.


I highly recommend this app especially for language listening skills - you get to hear more colloquial phrases as they’re spoken in real life by locals. Can confirm as a French learner in Paris.
