Memrise

If anyone has created, or knows any, good courses on Memrise ( http://www.memrise.com ) to learn Spanish, post them here! Hopefully this thread will become a great resource for anyone wanting to supplement Duolingo for extra vocab etc! As a start, here are a couple... http://www.memrise.com/course/263863/spanish-animals-a-course-for-all/ http://www.memrise.com/course/79389/learn-basic-mexican-spanish/

I'm almost done the Learn Basic Mexican Spanish course and I have quite enjoyed it thus far. It started off slow (how many times do you need to drill me on how to say taxi in spanish?) but picked up steam as it went. The last two levels have been challenging and are incorporating stuff I still have not learned on DL, so for now I am just watering instead of planting, as I like to use it to reinforce what I learn here and don't want to get too far ahead of myself.

I also created my own Memrise course. Each level represents a book I have attempted to read in Spanish. Then as I try to read those books I write down words I don't recognize and feed them all into that level on my Memrise course. From there I can drill myself on those words and then when I'm ready I come back and re-read the book, only to find I now understand it much better. So don't be afraid to create your own course with your own list of words to work on.

I'm at about level six of the second course you posted - the Basic Mexican Spanish one. I was finding it fairly easy up until now, but remembering all those complex sentences is getting harder. It's still a really good crash-course in the language. I'm hoping to finish it by May 24th (six weeks after I started it) but I don't know if that's going to happen, as I'm also in the home stretch of my Uni semester now so assignments for the education that I'm paying lots of money for to get an actual degree with ought to come first.

I also do these:

Another super useful one is this one: Spanish Duolingo Words. It helps with the memorization of those words that I can't get in duolingo sometimes. If the user who made this course is lurking about on the Duo discussion board right now, please identify yourself so I can give you all my lingots.

Generally, though, I would recommend any courses made by oliviaz. Her courses are all excellent so far. :)

I use memrise exclusively for vocab expansion, and leave duolingo for the learning, it has worked perfectly for me.

The first one is to learn animal names etc, the second more general vocab.

IMHO learning different animals at the beining is really stupid idea. Cat and dog is sufficient to start. I hate it that Duolingo forced me to remember penguin, elephante, rabbit, crab etc at the very first stage of learning. In my oppinion you should start with SENSES - eyes/to see, ears/to hear, hands/to put,to lift,to move something its. Things that you DO and NEED. I think I could go my entire life without knowing how is "penguin" in spanish...

Yes, but for more advanced learners, it's just quite a fun thing to learn!

Another useful resource that I use is http://quizlet.com/subject/spanish/ there are hundreds of spanish topics here and it seems to be used a lot by schools/teachers to post learning sets for students - it is also available in app form I just type something like 'GCSE Spanish environment' or 'spanish adjectives' and it displays all of the sets available in that category (GCSE=uk exam board)

hello everyone, thanks for this post I had not heard of memrise before. I'm not very great with technology and was hoping someone could help me out. I'm trying to create a course. I can input the words with no problem but cant figure out how to add audio without recording it myself. (my accent isn't good so I'd much rather use audio with correct pronunciations) once I get this done the course will be all the vocab from Practice Makes Perfect Spanish Vocabulary. I think this will be a very helpful course so I'd really appreciate any help. thanks!
