I’ve been using Memrise (a nifty SRSish iOS app) primarily as an aide to help learn the vocabulary in Genki 1, and up until today it’s been ok.
I found a user created module that covers all of the vocab in Genki 1. It has some quirks, probably because it’s user made - like repeating the same listening exercise session over and over and over (but just once a day), but I’ve been learning vocabulary.
But today it just started throwing new vocabulary words at me and hasn’t stopped. I think today’s sessions have thrown 15 to 20 new words at me, nearly all of them verbs, so they all rhyme and with so many, it’s impossible to even START to try to really memorize them.
Usually, it just gives me maybe 5 or 6 new words a day, and sometimes not even that many.
I always try to go for what Memrise considers to be a “daily dose” - it tells you when you’ve done a full day’s worth - but I’m only about halfway there today and I’m about ready to just quit.
I have Anki, and I bet I can find a Genki 1 vocab deck, so maybe I should just do that.
Anyone else out there use Memrise?
