Has anyone tried learning Japanese using Memrise Pro? Apparently they have videos along with their exercises. I'm wondering how it compares to Duo overall, though.
Thanks in advance.
I got the pro version just to get away from all the pop up ads on my phone when I used the Memrise app. I completed the Japanese 1 course on Memrise and I honestly had more fun learning through it versus learning on Duolingo. The videos are nice, but too infrequent to make any difference. I learned more useful phrases in a shorter amount of time on Memrise versus Duolingo. Neither one explicitly teaches grammar (for that, you should definitely use LingoDeer). Memrise shines more as a spaced repetition system than as a language course, I think...but even then, it’s outclassed by Anki. Probably the biggest advantage Memrise offers is the wealth of user-created content, which again, I don’t think you need a pro subscription to access.
