Memrise - Learn a Language

Memrise is a new service designed to help you learn a language. Like a lot of services in the language learning market Memrise offers flashcards for studying words. What makes Memrise more than a flashcard service is that they also offer audio pronunciations of the words and in many cases videos that feature people using the words and or acting the words. For example, in the set of French cards "un baiser" features a video of someone blowing a kiss to the camera.

Memrise welcomes contributions from its members. Members can add words, word lists, videos, and audio files.

Applications for Education
Memrise could be a good resource for those who want to learn a language on their own. Students who would like study materials to supplement what they've been provided in school should also take a look at Memrise.
