Use memrise.com to learn vocabulary

It's a pretty neat way if you want to focus on vocabulary.

I really like this site, it does a better job at memorizing vocabulary but it doesn't touch Duolingo's methodology at learning a language. Actually I think it would be almost impossible to start learning a language from scratch just from memrise.com. Either way, more quality resources for language learning is never a bad thing. Thanks for the mention.

Oh.My.God. What is this?? I'm starting to get hives, I'm so excited! Is it really free, or is there a catch?

I keep hearing about this. I'm not sure about the effectiveness of memorizing words out of context, but if it's giving people hives maybe its worth checking out. ;)

Great, I love mems. I still remember a ton of French words from 20 years ago due to mems. Thanks for that! I may get hives too :-0

Okay, I signed up. Username: csi - look me up! (I'm the one with the big eyes.) Tried it out - fun! Whoever marked this down obviously didn't want to get hives.

@lingua Oh it wasn't my suggestion. I have my doubts about flash cards, and I'm not the only one. Here's a polyglot who threw his flash cards away: https://theczechexperiment.wordpress.com/2011/11/04/flashcards-vs-extensive-reading/

Exactly my current strategy too, using both together is great.

I'm using both. I believe duolingo teaches a lot of words including conjugation, and memrise is good to learn new words, when you already know how to conjugate verbs. It is very good. I'm Prado88 on memrise.
